All I know is, every job in the past I have had based on tips, the bigger the house I delivered to, the more I got stiffed out of a tip. Valet parked
once, see a beat up truck and then a mercedes, grab that truck cause that is where your tip is coming from. I think the rich think they are entitled
for your services since they are "better than you". Not all rich folks are bad, but 95+ % of the ones I have delt with are scum.
That's interesting you know because I notice that too. The people who literally have the most and you know they do are always the cheapest because
everyone finds themselves saying That is how they got so rich. They were uncharitable and miserly all their lives. I know a man who is pained to give
anything and even resents others giving. This man (and I have seen this in action) will try to convince the giver that HE himself might welcome this
charity they have planned for another. My grandson has always been asking for one of those when he sees you with the Toys for Tots present you planned
to donate. I kid you not. Another woman was a real dynamo donating her time to our local VFW. This guy talked her into giving that up to run errands
for him, leading her on like he was also interested and might want to date her and she was in line for management. The woman naturally went above and
beyond for him until she caught on to his scam. When no relationship or "compensation" was forth coming and she finally guesses none is going to he
ends up paying her in food.
Same businessman employer takes full advantage of hard times and so neither reports or pays for worked hours effectively stealing time and Christmas
money from many other women with children. Same slime ball makes his Chef work like Bob Cratchet, 6 days a week 12pm-12am without overtime because
jobs are hard to find. If this chef doesn't pull the load at that price, there are people who will and he has a running ad in Craigs list. Meanwhile
the chef - poor with 4 kids and 2 dogs himself, does benefits for his children's school and same slimeball makes him pay for the use of the kitchen to
do it!!! You might say report him to the Labor Dept. They are aware and he has had stacks of complaints from people who were never paid after putting
in a days work. The Labor Dept does not care. ATF does not care he buys all his booze at the market, moldy bottles of name brands are filled with
cheap whiskey and charges double other places due to he will belt out a few Sinatra tunes and claims to have entertainment.
He meanwhile is a single man, heating and cooling a giant house, with housekeepers, 2 cars, regular manicures and pedicures, handymen, laundress and
has the restaurant chef make meals for his house.
His feeling is all those he employs are fortunate he is in a position to hire them.
He sincerely believes he is a great man and you would think he is quite magnanimous if you met him once and did not go by rumors. I am a humble man,
he will say...do not brag about my wealth, 2 cars, maids and groomers... but it is really so he can get the bands he does have to play for half their
going rate, convincing them he is going through hard times too, we all are he will say. I would like to hire you but. Or worse, why not audition
tonight and we'll see how it goes. If you ask for pay it will not have gone well at all for him.
He is a disgusting piece of human refuse.
Is he typical?
Unfortunately to a certain extent I am afraid so.
At least it feels like it when I look around these days.
Sure, I admit I know some wealthy people who are considerate and decent human beings and this does not always amount to meaning generous - it just
means awareness and caring.
Some people give not a penny of their own money - but they GIVE all of their time.
I knew a nun like that once who had a twin sister also a nun and they were doing nothing but helping the poor to survive from sunup well into the
night stopping only for food and prayer. Those 2 are long gone now. RIP
Too bad the good die young and the wicked seem to go on forever without a care in the world. Makes you wonder.
