Honestly, they rich are different than you and I: they are cheap bastids:
A strange tail out of Provo Canyon, Utah, where Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney chose not to tip his Borders Cafe barista, and instead offered her the rest of his half-guzzled hot chocolate…
“On their way out, Anne throws away her half-consumed hot chocolate, but Mitt approaches the counter. “I know you guys can’t sell this again, but I was wondering if one of you guys wanted the rest of my hot chocolate?”
“No thanks,” one of the other baristas told him, wondering if this was some sort of bizarre joke.
“I don’t want to waste it, there’s still plenty left, it’s still perfectly good…”
I cannot imagine 1) not tipping and b) offering my backwash to the minimum-wage staff as a consolation prize.
Can’t fix douchbag…
As a teenager, I spent a short time as a caddy at a private club.
The richest people are the least generous.
….especially towrds people they view as ‘the help’.
Mitt, as other blue nosed snobs before him with whom I am all too familiar likely believed that the kid could not afford a pricey hot chocolate, thus offered him his swill somehow concluding that this was a generous act. Been ther and had it done to me a my former employers at the country club. They truly do NOT understand.
We need President Romney, on accounta Obama doesn’t UNDERSTAND working Americans!

At least not the real Anglo-Saxon working Americans.
BARRY would have finished the Java. He IS Indonesian after all. Commie!
He really is beyond out of touch. That said, does anyone honestly think he has a snowball’s chance in hell of becoming president? No. Not unless Obama has a very young, very pregnant white girlfriend somewhere. The media is trying to keep it alive for the ad revenue. Really, just ignore it.
