I sincerely hope a similar situation happens to me in the future.
That homeless man laughed, ran off and bought a couple of Natural Lights. The waiter on the other hand, did not laugh. I've been a waiter. I know this to be fact. That waiter has your friend's face ingrained in his memory.

I, on the other hand find this hilarious and a great email piece when I read it.

Didn't Al Sharpton get busted for selling drugs years ago? LOL that guy is a fake and a joke!

Sharpton is not a black leader! He does not speak for me or any of the other free thinking black Americans in this country.

sharpton could care less about all the black people (or people of any other race) who are having trouble finding employment or earning a living wage in this environment, as long as he has his own job as "troublemaker".

he really should be ashamed of how low he is willing to sink to promote himself, though.
