Study Suggests Least Honest Americans Found In Washington D.C.

News — July 25, 2013 at 2:43 pm by

More than 90% of Americans unknowingly passed an informal test about honesty this month, according to the beverage company Honest Tea. The company set up more than 60 unmanned kiosks around the U.S., with at least one in every state, offering cups of tea for $1. Each location included a drop box for the payment. Overall, 92% of Americans who visited the stands paid their buck. In Alabama and Hawaii, everyone paid without exception. Folks in Indiana and Maine did almost as well, achieving a 99% honesty score. But in Washington, DC, about 20% took a drink without paying. The morality level in DC was so low that someone even stole a bicycle belonging to the Honest Tea’s founder. [AllGov].

Considering D.C. is always filled with tourists, this study is bologna. However, if crooked politicians exist like every ad suggests, this city would be full of them…As far as the bike being stolen, same rules apply as the tea. Yes, the thief could have left money for the bike, but this study suggests the chances were slim.
