A Good Lesson in Voting


Yesterday on my way to lunch, I passed one of the homeless guys
in that area, with a sign that read “Vote Obama, I need the money.” Once
inside I noticed my waiter had on 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, that 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 and 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 is going to take a while to
catch on with those doing the work.

This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!
