Pay It Forward
I was at Southcenter's Starbucks today in line to order a Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte. A young teenager was in front of me asking how much a strawberry something cost - she was told $3.30 without tax; then she asked about something else - $3.00. I could see that she only had $3.00. I reached into my purse and gave her a dollar, saying that I knew she really wanted the strawberry thing - that I don't routinely do this, but someday she could repay the favor to someone else. She was very grateful.
When I ordered my drink, the 2 gals behind the counter, said "Oh, it's on Starbucks today. When we see random acts of kindness, it's on the house".
Wow, now isn't this a heartwarming story? I actually was a little embarrassed; yet I felt good.
