Your feel-good story for today.
[via PiPress] “Waiting in line for drive-through food can be a robotic, dehumanizing process, but the pay-it-backward movement makes it something … transcendent … The practice inspires imitation, when a recipient returns the favor by paying the bill of the car behind, forming a chain reaction. The unofficial record for the longest string of pay-backs is 16 ‚Äî last winter at a Caribou Coffee on Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.”
Other instances of “paying-it-backward” have been reported at retail and bib-box stores. Have you ever encountered the phenomenon? Been a recipient? Do you feel like giving it a try?
