Redistributing the wealth

I found this on Yellowbullet and thought it was amusing.

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "HUNGRY VET PLEASE HELP" outside a restaurant.
Once in the restaurant my server had an a 'Obama 08' pin on her smock. Thanks for giving away your political outlook for me.
When the bill came I decided not to tip her and explained to her that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. She stood there in disbelief when I told her that I was going to redistribute her $10 tip to someone whom I deemed more in need, the homeless guy outside. She angrily stormed from my table mumbling something. I went outside and gave the homeless guy $10 , As I pointed to the waitress through the window I told him to thank her as she has decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy thanked me and shook my hand. I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waitress was pretty angry that I gave away the money she thought she earned, even though the actual recipient needed the money more. What a shock, I guess she found the redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application. You make your bed you gotta lay in it..
