Arriving to the Starbucks drive-thru window, I was shocked to learn that someone had paid for my Venti Vanilla Rooibos Hot Tea, no sugar, no cream, double cupped.
I didn’t know how to react. A capitalist, I first thought, “Why would someone do this? Why would someone throw away their hard-earned money on a stranger?”
Even Baby Gwendolyn would have been confused. But then I felt so good. Like sunshine! Someone had done a good deed. Participating in Pay it Forward, they effectively put me into a super mood. And today, I too, shall pay for someone’s coffee.
How will you Pay it Forward?
