Paying it forward is a third-party beneficiary concept that involves doing something good for someone in response to a good deed done on your behalf or a gift you received. When you pay it forward, however, you don’t repay the person who did something nice for you. Instead, you do something nice for someone else. For example, if someone changes your tire while you are stranded on the highway, you might shovel your elderly neighbor’s walkway after snow has fallen.
So how’s that working out in the real world?
Ridiculously wealthy Atherton, the neighborhood for an Obama fundraiser last year, thinks that it helped create “shovel ready jobs.”
Last Sunday, multi-million dollar homes in Atherton had offensive graffiti sprayed on them. The graffiti was found on walls, fences and even a car.
Many of the messages said “F*** the 1%.”
Via the Washington Free Beacon:
A Florida restaurant is being forced to pass their healthcare expenses onto customers.
Sandra Clark, Director of Operations at Gator’s Dockside, told WRDQ that the restaurant is now adding a one percent surcharge to every customer’s bill to help pay for all 500 full time employees’ healthcare.
“Affordable healthcare is part of the cost of doing business. We’re definitely doing it [adding the surcharge] to stay afloat…,” she explained.
The restaurant group expects to pay up to $500,000 a year for its workers’ healthcare, but it does not expect to come close to recouping that recovering that.
Republique, a trendy, expensive restaurant in Los Angeles is now charging an extra 3% Obamacare surcharge on every bill. Bill Chait, one of the owners, is certain that his customers will be fine with the price increase.
