So...I've got this Chick-fil-A gift card. (A student gave it to me as an "end of the school year" gift.) I have no temptation to redeem it, because (A) my family and I have never really liked the food, and (B) I don't want to patronize any business that financially supports anti-gay causes. (And no, those aren't listed in order of importance.)

However, if I leave it unredeemed, Chick-fil-A gets to keep the money that my student's mom spent on it, so I kind of want to redeem every penny of it. But as much as I want to do that, I can't even stomach the thought of setting foot in the place.

I thought about mailing it to my sister-in-law as I know she'll have no qualms about eating there, but encouraging her to go seems wrong. I don't go into Philly on a regualar basis, but when I do, I always see panhandlers at certain intersections. Maybe I'll give it to one of them the next time I go. I know it'll get spent, and he/she will get a hot meal.
