Have you ever had your meal paid for by the car in front of you in a drive thru? Have you ever paid for the person behind you?

I want to hear your stories!

Nope to either.

I get to edit my original response. We went to Starbucks this evening and there was a line of people who all paid for each others drinks including ours (4 drinks totally $12). So we paid it forward to the lady behind us :) so yay!

That happens pretty often at our local Starbucks.  It is fun because the baristas will tell you what number car you are in the pay it forward.

Yes to both...and both happened at Starbucks. I think it's pretty common there, lol.

When I worked at Starbucks we got to thirteen cars one morning. Then some silly kid broke our streak :/

I had a lady pay for all my stuff at the $1. It was extremely nice. Even though she didn't know it, Dh had just lost his job.
I paid it forward months later :-)

It has never happened to me but I work at a restaurant with a drive thru. There is one guy that always pays for the customer behind them. It usually lasts a couple of cars. Lately though he has been giving us a $50 for his order and tells us to pay for the orders until it is gone.
