Redistribution of Wealth – FUNNY

My sister received this from a friend and passed it on to me.  I thought it was very funny and I hope you do too.

For my friends in America…
“Today on my way to the Waffle House for breakfast I 
passed a homeless guy with a sign that read ‘Vote Obama, I need the 
money.’ I laughed. Once in the restaurant my server had on an ‘Obama
08’ pin; again I laughed as she had given away her political 
preference–just imagine the coincidence. When the bill came I decided 
not to tip the server and explained to her that I was exploring the 
Obama redistribution of wealth concept. She stood there in disbelief 
while I told her that I was going to redistribute her tip to someone 
who I deemed more in need–the homeless guy outside. The server 
angrily stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy 
$10 and told him to thank the server inside as I’d decided he could 
use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful. At the end of my 
rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless 
guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waitress was 
very angry that I gave away the money she did earn even though the 
actual recipient [apparently needed] the money more. I guess 
redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than 
in practical application.”
