I was at Starbuck's this morning, ordering Brody's teachers' gift cards through the drive through. I decided to also treat myself to a mocha.
When I pulled up to the pay window, the Starbuck's employee informed me that the lady in front of me just bought me my mocha.
At first I thought it was an accident. Then I realized it was purposeful.
So I bought the lady behind me her soy latte.
It made my day, and from what the Starbuck's employee told me, it had been going on all morning. Everyone was buying everyone's drinks with a Merry Christmas attached.
No, it doesn't actually save anyone money. But it spread holiday cheer.
And for the cost of $3, even I could afford that.
