Pay it backwards


Updating my 101 in 1001 list =)

Yesterday I went to Starbucks and ordered my Grande Skinny Peppermint Mocha and Mozzarella Panini Sandwich… Yummm.  When I pulled up to the window to pay for my order, the barista told me that the car in front of me took care of my bill.  WHAT!  I was shocked!  I didn’t know what to say, I couldn’t very well chase them down the road to thank them! It was so AMAZING, and lifted my spirits instantaneously.

Then I thought about my list, and #35, Pay for someone behind me in a the drive thru.  Luckily, there was a car behind me placing their order.  I handed my card to the barista and told him to take care of their order.  All the Starbucks workers got so excited.  Apparently, I was the 6th car in a row to keep the chain going.  I hope the car behind me followed suit and paid it forward, by paying backwards.
