The Starbucks Generosity TrainSubmitted by awl19 on Sat, 09/22/2012 - 07:20
I remember one day I was at the Starbucks drive-thru waiting to get my coffee before I headed off to class. It was just a normal, average day. I got to the window, pulled out my credit card and passed it to the cashier. He told me, "This coffee is free." I looked at him confused and said, "That's awesome! Am I your 1 millionth customer?" He smiled and said, "Nope! The person in front of you paid for it." - I extended my credit card to him again and told him I wanted to pay for the person behind me. He smiled again and told me this was a frequent occurrence. The baristas called it "The Starbucks Generosity Train."
Today I went to buy food at Panda Express. I handed the cashier my card and told him to pay for the meal of the person behind me. He looked at me confused and then smiled. This time I added an ingenious twist. I asked him to tell the person behind me to "research Ron Paul."
If you got a free meal or coffee would you be interested in knowing why? (Wonder if this act of good will get the cashier interested?)
Start up your own Starbucks Generosity Train, include Ron Paul, and brighten someone's day! It's a win, win situation =)
