The nicest thing happened to me today!

So, I had to go to work for a few hours this am. I have a cold trying to take hold so on my way home I decided to stop at a local fast food joint to get a breakfast burrito smoothered in green chile (good for the sinuses!) I ordered at the drive through and then pulled up to the window and held out my money to the girl as she was handing me my food. She told me the people in the car in front of me payed for my order and to say "Merry Christmas"! I was a little confused at first-I did NOT know these people!
That was just such a nice way to start the day!

wow! that's great. i echo what crystal said, "pay it forward."

btw, i was watching a show on the golden gate bridge. they interviewed one of the toll collectors and he said that during the holidays it's very common for people to pay for the car behind them. once, he said, it went on for about 20 cars, until finally, the 20th car just said "great!" and didn't pay for the car behind him.

There was no one behind me, but that was my first thought (after I got over the shock). Next time I'm in at a fast food restaurant I definatly will pay for the car behind me. It was such a nice thing!

That is really nice. So heartwarming to know there a people out there like that. I heard a story from a toll booth person who said that a lady pays for the bridge toll for the 3 cars behind on her birthday every year. (And that's not cheap at $3 a pop)
