Pay it Backward

Yesterday I drove eight blocks or so out of my way to go to the Starbucks drive-thru because I was feeling so dreary that I didn't want to have to actually talk to anyone. The line was very long and I needed to get to work and I just felt lousy.

When I got to the window to get my Grande Latte, I was told that the car in front of me had paid for my drink and that I was the 23rd car in a string of people paying for the drinks of the car behind them. Wow! I said I wanted to continue the trend and she said great, that'll be $7.87. (My latte was only 3 something, but it was worth it.) I only had 7 bucks, but she took it and said that'd count.

It greatly improved my morning.
