Pay it forward

Last week as I was sufficing my hunger pains with the delishness of a Zip's peanut butter cup milkshake. I am waiting in line for a big rig truck that is practically ordering everything off the menu. 

I want my milkshake and I want it now!

As I am trying to be polite and inch towards his bumper to give him the nice, "Hey I am behind you let's hurry the eff up" type gesture, he finally moves.

I now can slurp up my fatty peanut butter milkshake, large by the way, which I don't need but this day I couldn't hold back

I drive up to the window and the lady tells me that there is no need for my $5 to pay for this delicious $5 milkshake....yes $5 for a milkshake and no there is no bourbon with it...

She hands me my shake and hands me this note

The drive thru worker also informed me that he not only paid for my order but also the 6 other hungry people's orders behind me!
I couldn't believe it!!!!

I know those who follow me on Facebook and twitter have already seen this! but I had to pass on the entire story. That made my day and paying it forward is contagious!



The next morning I bought the 2 people behind me in starbucks their orders as well, I can only hope that sometime in there say they went and did the same thing.

I am wanting to do a link up and ask that every blogger that visits here, link up and tell about a time when you have paid it forward, or to do it starting tomorrow. When you get your morning coffee, egg McMuffin, etc. help the person out behind you.

Let's start this trend this week and I can not wait to read about how you helped one person and how great it made you feel!

that is so awesome! I love nice people!! I have paid for people behind me at toll booths before and it really is just a great feeling- helping someone just because and not bc they did anything or bc you want something in return!

I've done this once or twice before. In my GOALS for this year, I am to do 10 random acts of kindness. Since the diet, I haven't been through a drive-thru but I may just pop in on one this week just to pay for someones meal!

GREAT PLAN GIRLY!
