Omigosh!!!! We only have three days left!!! But there is so much more that I want to do!!!
Today, it was time to do something fun! When people think of being kind, most think of things they could buy for someone. Gifts are a nice, quick, easy, kindness gesture. So today, I decided to take on the popular "pay it forward" form of kindness.
I'm so bummed I didn't do this sooner!! It was SO fun!! Granted, I have done it a little here and a little there, but wait till you hear about today's adventure! You just might want to do it too!
So, I went into a small "breakfast-type" restaurant this morning and I bought a gift card for $50 and a hot chai tea latte for myself. I instructed the cashier to pay for everyone's ticket as far as she could from that $50 gift card and she was not allowed to tell anyone who was taking care of the tab. I found a spot where I could watch the action and relaxed with my latte.
I had so much fun!! Twenty-two people were able to get a free breakfast with the final person only having to pay $1.12 for their order.
The looks on people's faces!! I could barely keep from giggling out loud! Some would look around to see if they were on camera, others went ahead and paid for the person behind them, many were confused and were really unsure how to accept the gift.
I only got caught by one person, a woman and she sent over a cinnamon roll to my table to enjoy with my latte. Oh, my goodness! I can't remember having more fun on $50 in a long time! I would love to do it again! Maybe I can find someone to do it with me and we can double our investment!!
Give it shot. It can be any denomination at what I would assume any location, but it feels good. I wish I did have a cme
