Kids Don't Have Enough Money For Ice Cream, Leave $100 Tip When Worker Foots the Bill
Several problems I have with this.
#1. They're making out the people who gave the ice cream without having enough money for it to be "nice" while everyone else who refuses is "not nice". Maybe they just don't want to get fired for giving away free food. This has happened to people. Maybe, in the grand scheme of things, keeping your job is more important than a couple of kids you don't know getting free ice cream.
#2. Why is giving kids ice cream a grandstanding example of an "act of kindness"? Ice cream isn't a necessity. Isn't child obesity a problem in America?
#3. Couldn't this inspire other kids to pull the same stunt with people thinking they'll get a $100 tip if they fall for it?
#4. Isn't it kind of jerkish and dishonest to pretend you don't have enough money for something when you clearly do? Are we teaching kindness pays or dishonesty pays?
