PAY IT FORWARD - LETS START AN EPIDEMIC!

Every day during my travels around town, I stop at Starbucks or McDonald's for a beverage. I aways pay for the car behind me. I hand the cashier a business card and ask her to give it to the lucky customer behind me and tell them "To have a great day" from me! Normally I don't get a response from the lucky driver - however, yesterday was an exception.  I actually received a very warm and gracious call from the driver thanking me for her coffee!  The call made my day!  Take a moment out of your day to make someone else's day! PAY IT FORWARD!   Happy Holidays to each and everyone of you!

Great idea but be careful, we had an agent do this and it was a lady behind him and the boyfriend had a fit. It ws funny because he actually stopped him at the next redlight. But it all ended well.

Hey Deb,

Yesterday, while at the deli counter, I overhead a female customer meekly tell the deli employee, "I asked for 1/2 pound of cheese, not a pound." The employee apologized and asked the customer if she would want the pound or she would be happy to removed the extra slices."  With hesitation the customer replied, "Oh, just leave them on since that's all I have to eat for Christmas anyway." 

I turned and looked at her and knew my next opportunity to bless someone's day.  I stalked her up and down the grocery ailes pretending to be interested in the foods so that I wouldn't look suspicious, while waiting for her to break away from her cart so that I could drop some folded money into it.  My break came . . . I dropped the money and passed a little beyond her.  I then backtracked up the aisle and ran into her in the next aisle where the money was gone and she was on her cell phone . . .

Way cool . . .
