I Finally Had A Chance To Do This
--by dancingDog, posted Aug 21, 2008
I don't go to Starbucks very often because although I love coffee, their special drinks are a little on the pricey side. When I do go, I usually don't have any extra money with me either. But today, I had time to go before work and I had enough money to pay for the lady in back of me at the drive-thru - I've always wanted to do that!
When I got to the window to pay, I was really excited! The barrista was very deadpan about my request. He said, "Well if you really want to be that generous, you can." Glad he finally approved!
I drove away excited and exhilarated and a little curious about what my "victim" might be thinking - I just hope it made her day as happy as it made mine!
Got you me chuckling. I was trying to picture you in your car, the deadpan barrista (so funny) and peering in your rear view mirror...
"Victim" huh? That has a negative connotation...I usually use kindness recipient....but its just semantics...we get it....GOOD for you....the drinks are pricey but its my one indulgence....I don't drink, smoke, gamble....I do have a expresso machine at home, my Mom's Thk u present after a visit...and I do make my own on the weekend...I'm addicting to a cappuccino every morning- yum! ;)
