I have been delivering pizzas of late for food/drinking money. The other day, as I was driving around looking at all the political stickers on cars in front of me, I thought of a good idea for a study. The study: Since I go to about 85 houses a week, I thought I'd start recording who tips better. I have no hypothesis, no real goal to publish anything, or any particular reason for doing this beyond filling the time at work with something stimulating. The method: Whenever I pull up to a place with a W or Kerry sticker, I record the amount of tip and which party they support. I then average all of them out and compare. The results (so far): It's been two weeks, and the Bushies are in the lead by ~$0.10. Not a huge gap. However, the deviation of the bushies is far larger than that of Kerry'ers. With Bushies, I get anywhere between "thanks buddy" and $5. With Kerry'ers it's usually between $1.50-$3.50, with the occasional $4. The control: Contrary to popular belief, rich people don't tip better. The best tips come from the middle class. Rich people act like "it's about time, ******" and poor people act like "get off my porch, ******". However, I've found that politically motivated people (on both sides) tip WAY better than the sheep. So thanks political types, this money is fantastic! I'll update this after I work again on Wednesday.
