Doing Good

A woman came through the drive-thru on Friday and asked to pay for the person behind her too. That happens sometimes when the person’s spouse or friend or whatever is in line behind them, so it’s no big deal. I asked her if she knew the person. She said no and told me to tell her she said “happy Friday” and then drove off. The next car pulled up with a middle-aged blonde woman behind the wheel. I’ve got her Americano and apricot cookie ready to go and told her about the nice person who bought her breakfast. She flipped out. She told me it’s called “pay it forward” and I tried not to laugh. It is nice to see people so elated when strangers are kind. Not only did it make her day, but it made mine too. She told me she wanted to pay for the person behind her, “No, wait! I’ll do it another time! I’ll save it up!” And then she drove away.

In other news, there are a lot of famous bloggers roaming the streets downtown. I’ve never felt so geeky, not even when I rode my bike to junior high school with my violin strapped to the back.

    You know these famous bloggers? I could spot 3, maybe 4 bloggers, I think.

    …or, well, maybe 6. -but I think I’d have to be looking for most of them.

    What else is up during this sxsw time?

    Can I go through the drive through and ask them to charge my coffee to the person behind me?

    It’s called paying it backward.
