Yesterday was payday here at the radio station. Payday is like Christmas for adults and the best part is... it happens TWICE a month.
One of the things I've always wanted to do is "Pay it Forward." I'm sure you've heard of people who pick up the bill for the person behind them at the drive-thru window - I wanted that to be me. During my stop at Dunkin Donuts in Clifton Park, after they swiped my card to pay for my order... I waited to see what the car behind me owed. Now this was a deal breaker for me because there's NO WAY I was going to pay more than $5! Sorry, I have a limited source of generous funds!!!
Luckily for me and the car behind me, their bill came to $4.15, totally in Mike's price range. The best part was the look on the drive-thru attendants face when she opened the window and saw my smiling face still parked there. "Is everything okay with your order, sir?" Yes, and I want to pay for the order behind me.
It's a small, random act of kindness but I'll tell you what, it will make your morning.
