Robin Hood That Shit!
So I propose the following: every time a rich and famous person dines out and the management would have covered his/her tab, one lucky table of other, regular diners gets its meal on the house, and the celebrity, who now pays for his own meal, gets the credit. Like, "Gentlemen, your meal is on the house this evening, courtesy of young Master Bieber..." Bieber tips his fresh-out-of-the-box purple Yankees cap to you, you nod back... Everyone wins in this scenario! The randomly selected table enjoys a surprise gift, the rich dude feels good about himself, and restaurant management probably ends up covering a cheaper tab because the comped patrons didn't know their meal was going to be free prior to ordering, while also drumming up a little extra business with a new gimmick... Whaddaya think?!
Then again, maybe people who haven't done anything special enough to be rich and recognized don't deserve a free ride...those useless, faceless, sycophantic leeches...
(Just so yous know, I wrote this post BEFORE I found the accompanying picture. I had no idea Bieber had a purple Yankees hat. That was just supposed to be a joke.)
