So. We all thought that the whole class warfare between the 1% and the 99% was dying down. The encampments in SF and Oakland, CA have been broken up and life was returning to its normal course. However, a wealthy investment banker left a waitress a “1%” tip (I see what he did there) and gave her a written “tip” in advising her to “get a real job.”
Stepping away from whether this was ethical or not ethical, or moral or immoral. My mind was blown in how there was such a sharp and poignant metaphorical message behind such a simple notion of tipping 1%.
I am a fan of metaphors (I love creative writing), and I thought this was an interesting example of metaphors/symbolism in real life.
What do you think?
