Wow! I had a surprise RAOK the other day! It was so cool! cheeky

I was in a Starbucks drive thru paying 4 my order when the girl at the window says "Oh the car in front of you just paid $5 on your order." The slow hesitant way she said it I thought she made a mistake & charged the car in front of me for part of my order. But then she said "No he paid $5 towards your order." I was like "What??" Then the girl said "It was a random act of kindness. We get them sometimes."

It was sooo cool! Needless to say, I can't wait till my next drive thru so I can pass it on. What a neat way to give some1 a smile! cool

Here in Tampa area 2 Christian radio stations sponsor 'drive thru Friday' on the first Friday of each month.  You can download the letter from their websites and print it off. Then when you go thru the drive-thru and pay all or part of the order for the car behind you, you give the cashier the letter to hand to the person you 'gifted'.  Getting the letter makes it more likely the person will 'pass on' the kindness to someone in the future.
