Here's one I read on another forum...
Yesterday on my way to lunch at the Dixie House, I passed one of the homeless guys in that area. He had a sign that read " Vote Obama, I need the money."

In the restaurant my waiter was wearing an "Obama 08" tee shirt. When the bill came, I decided not to tip the waiter and explained to him while he had given me exceptional service, his tee shirt made me feel he obviously believes in Senator Obama's plan to redistribute the wealth. I told him I was going to redistribute his tip to someone that I deemed more in need; the homeless guy outside. He stood there in disbelief for a moment, then angrily stormed away.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $3 and told him to thank the waiter inside, as I had decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy looked at me in disbelief but seemed grateful.

As I got in my truck, I realized this rather unscientific redistribution experiment had left the homeless guy quite happy for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn. Well, I guess this redistribution of wealth idea is going to take a while to catch on with those actually doing the work.

I suppose that this likely is only a fictional parable, but stiffing waiters kinda burns me up

This has been going around the net in several various forms for awhile, so it is just a joke. But like all things, it could have happened. However, if my waiter WAS wearing an Obama t-shirt, I might consider it (or ask for another waiter!!) "rlol"

I have read it before too. I decided immediately that if I had the opportunity that I would do it. Never crack a smile either.

The storyteller didn't stiff the waiter. The waiter is an Obama supporter who believes in socialism.

It's like if some guy let a surfer waiter use his beach house for a weekend instead of leaving a $5 tip.
We're here. With gear. Get used to it.
