    I love your story so much people can be so nice.

    I had something simular happen to me. Not with food but, once a customer bought me a wool floral area rug I wanted at a business across the street and left it with no name of the person to thank them. I was thrilled and befuddled. That rug was seventy dollars!

    We have something like that around here called "Pay it Backward." It's especially easy at fast food drive ups. There was an incident in Taylorville at the McD's where one person did it, so the next 11 cars did it!! That was so cool. It's promoted by the local christian radio station...

    With my luck the guy behind me was buying for the whole office and I'd wind up with a $200 bill. Feel bad asking how much their bill is before I offer to pay for it though.lol That makes me look cheap then. Just wanted to do something nice.

    That just happened to a friend of mine the other day! After a day of running errands and donating to various charity groups, she decided to treat herself to Starbucks and was surprised when the cashier said the lady in front of her paid for her coffee. She thought it was karma, but maybe there's something going on at Starbucks where customers pay for other customers? Does it have something to do with National Coffee Day?

    lol. Nah, I don't think it's the least bit unreasonable to ask how much it is before offering. I always do. There's been a couple times I just left a $5 and said put it on their tab. It's still something nice to do, and it leaves them wondering all day

    The chai tea latte from Panera Bread is excellent, too.
    I agree, Panera is better, but that Starbuck drive though is too easy to pass up....I have to pass it every day on my way to work. So expensive but I let myself have a treat once in a while.
