The Most (and Least) Honest Cities in the U. S.
Well, the folks at Honest Tea ran a nationwide experiment and compiled The National Honesty Index.
Here's how they did it: First, they set up unmanned pop-up stores all over the country, where people were asked to leave one dollar for a bottle of Honest Tea. Then observers watched as people either paid a dollar or just grabbed a bottle and ran.
Then they crunched the numbers and compiled a list of cities with the percentage of people who were honest--i,.e., thirsty folks who actually dropped a dollar in the box before taking a drink.
