I have to tell you so I don't forget - I went thru Starbucks drive-thru this morning and ordered my tall black mild coffee as usual. I noticed the lady ahead of me didn't accept her change which was $2 and some change.....I thought, wow! she is leaving a huge tip. When I got to the window she handed me my coffee and said, "The lady ahead of you did a kind deed and paid for your coffee."
There were about 3 employees watching through the little window as she told me this. I was shocked, I hadn't even a clue she would have been doing that! I said, "You're kidding! Thank you! I'll do this for someone next time." Then I went to put my coffee in the holder and promptly spilled it all over the tray.....oh well. I am smiling every time I think of that lady...the coffee tastes that much better. I can't wait to 'pay if forward' next time.
I was going to wave at her, but by the time I got to the street, she was gone.......
So.. yeah, this stuff DOES actually happen in real life and not just in movies and tv shows. Yay nice people that almost manage to reaffirm what little faith I have in humanity.
