Paying it forward >> Drive Thru Surprises?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

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!

I've paid for coffees and such for the person behind me.

Once I saw a woman at the grocery store counting a handful of change.She had 2 young kids with her and just looked like she was ready to cry. I felt so bad so While her back was turned I stuck a $20 bill in her purse and left.

 I have done it at the grocery store . .  and I love when it happens at Starbucks, it's fun to be part of the pay chain.

People are awesome sometimes :)

Quoting gabster418: 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.

I have paid for people in the checkout a few times if they are short cash- especially Mom's with babies and older people. I have never had someone do it for me.
