    Anyone else hate this ?

    Went to grab a coffee today like I do normally, everything was fine. I rolled up to the window the lady told me the person in front of me paid for my order. Now I feel obligated to pay for the person behind me, I feel it's some sort of karma if you don't pay it forward.

    My coffee was $1.95 the people behind their order was $11.50, so I paid for half. I hate when people do this. I know it's a nice gesture, but really I could go without it.

    It's stupid. People should "pay it forward" to the less fortunate in this world, not the person behind you in a line. They obviously have the money or they wouldn't be in line. Help out someone that wouldn't normally be able to get a Starbucks or McDonalds quarter pounder.

    They don't, its someone did a nice deed for me so I gotta pass it on, just get it over and done with. Plus I go to this place a lot, I cant look like a cheap fuck. Even people who I know I dont like it when they do it, now I owe you one.

    I don't have any drive thru Starbucks where I live now, but before I moved, I did. The pay for the next person phenomenon usually happened on Moday mornings & it was usually just single drivers in line on their way to work. I liked it.

    In bars is the worst. I order a 5 dollar beer, buddy orders a 10 dollar craft beer, says "I'll get this round, you get the next. Total scumbag move.

    I'm not into paying 33% more for two rounds than I normally would, thanks.

    It's martini time in the PQ household- I may post, but don't guarantee it to make sense.

    It happened to me once. I agreed to pay for the person behind me. Their order ended up being cheaper than mine. :yes:

    Yeah I hate those guys. The best thing to do in that situation is to drink the craft beers with them. Lots of times these manipulators will start drinking the $5 beer if they know you're going to play their game.

    Dude, that sucks. Luckily for me and my friends. We will agree on a beer get a pitcher of it, and split it, anything else is out of your own pocket, easy and simple.

    I don't go to drive thru's any more but if I did I would feel pangs of kindness swell over me and then go on my merry way. You don't have to chain letter that shit to guy behind you for karma. Just do something nice for someone in your own way.

    My wife Pays it forward every time she goes to Starbucks. I'll bet 1 out of 10 times someone has done the same for her.
