I stopped at Starbucks this morning (the same Starbucks where the person in front of me paid for my order last week) and the person in front of me in the drive thru line paid for my order. So for the second week in a row I got a free Pumpkin Spice Latte (and today’s order also included oatmeal, which was delicious). And once again I didn’t pay it forward (see last week’s entry for my list of excuses).
And now I want to go back to Starbucks next week to see if it happens again. Is there something about paying for strangers’ coffee at Starbucks on Thursdays? Was my experience just a crazy, random happenstance? I must know.
The only downside was that my Pumpkin Spice Latte was served in a Christmas cup. Really? C’mon, guys, it’s Halloween. Could we at least wait until November to break out the Christmas cups? (Remember once upon a time when the Christmas season really didn’t start until after Thanksgiving? I miss that.)
