Am I the only one who doesn't see this as any great act of kindness? First of all anything that Starbucks sells is not a life's necessity. I can understand paying it forward at a grocery store in an impoverished area or perhaps a pharmacy or somewhere where you find people genuinely in need but a Starbucks?! This is actually comical. There is a car in front of me, looks like a BMW in line for a double mocha latte, I think they need my help. I'll pay for their order and hopefully they'll pay for the next person's order because all of us in the Starbuck's drivethru look like we're suffering financially.
It's not only about helping people who are truly impoverished. While yes that is a fantastic thing to do, it is just about spreading kindness throughout the world. Did those people really need help paying for their drinks? Of course not, they wouldn't be in line if they couldn't afford it, but that doesn't mean that someone can't be nice and try to put a smile on the face of a total stranger. If you can sit here and tell me that you wouldn't smile if the person in front of you paid for your Starbucks, or your food, or your gas, then obviously you have no emotion because even the smallest gesture can go a long way. So when you ask if you are the only one who doesn't see this as an act of kindness my answer to you is no, you are not the only one; however, you and all of your emotionless robot friends can keep your comments to your self because you guys resemble the negativity that we do not need in this world today.
I think paying it forward at a Starbucks is a quick/easy way to pat yourself on the back. There is genuine need in this world and I happen to think our money and efforts could be better spent elsewhere. I am not negative, I am a realist. As far as keeping my comments to myself, If I had you wouldn't have needed to respond :).
In a reply to jdhunn's comment. I would imply that first. One would have to understand the pay it forward concept as an act of decency towards another human being in which you do not even know. Yet still would be considerate to only as a peaceful act. 2. as coffee is not a necessity. 1 coffee in a day maximum is not unhealthy for an awareness of alkaline vs acidity. Just as well within a grocery store, the odds of a higher amount of funds to pay it forward word be a bit more difficult to sustain. Just as well a pharmacy with given research as possible drugs. May, just be forwarding a false positive as further research of medications that are said to aid. Actually may not in many proven ways depending which particular drugs. yet one would have to understand the body to realize. In reference to needs. As ones may not need their coffee that day. Although what a 3 dimension frame of negative mind thoughts would be is to keep being blinded to what may actually be a positive change in the thought frame of human minds for the better. A step forward in a positive direction. Yet. It is with statements like this, how negativity and true connectivity with our other human beings brothers and sisters, are in actuality a reason positive changes may be so difficult to see. Yet, is possible to achieve. One Love.
I like to give Ms.Sacco some rightful criticism, here it is, contact Seth Macfarlane asked if one of his animated characters would help u out and make sure u send him a clip, peter likes clips.
tall caramelo machiatto please.........
A tear in my eye and my heart full of Love for the 450 people who reached out and paid for some ones order at Connecticut Starbucks. Love and kindness touches someones life and makes the world go round. Sending Hugs to all the wonderful people who reached out to a stranger and made there day.
It's really fun when I get to the window and find that someone has paid for my Chai Latte! I treat someone behind me in line fairly often, but not daily. It's a little bit random, but it does happen fairly often and I live in the Seattle area.
I pay for the car behind me EVERY time I go through the drive-thru at my Starbucks, and have been doing so for just over a year now. While I do get an occasional thank you voucher for a free drink from the Starbucks barista, I have yet to have another customer buy me a drink. To give is not always to get I suppose, but it will not hinder my own generosity.
Starbucks is the best customer service I've had in all my visits.
The people in CT are lovely people! I lived in your great state some 40 years ago and hated to move away!
no big deal.its called "random act of kindness.people do it all the time.no thanks asked.
we are evolving,,,,,,this is now,,,,what the human race is about,,,,thank all of you
