Heeeey guys! 🙂
Hope everyone is having a great FRIDAY! Can you believe that today is the LAST day of July? Summer is flying by…
Lately, as all of you wonderful followers know, I’m trying to be a better person. I’m trying to be more loving to myself and others… be more positive, and overall just a less depressive little twat.
I’ve been thinking how important it is to ‘pay it forward’ and to show others how great the world could be if we all just showed each-other (and the environment, and animals!) a bit more appreciation, love, and generosity.
There’s been a lot of coverage about people paying for the person’s order behind them in a restaurant/fast food/coffee place. That’s an awesome idea and can easily put a smile on someone’s face. That being said, I get to ask a dumb question without judgement here – how in the hell does it work?
Let’s say I want to pay for the person behind me. Do I just guess at their order price and hand the employee extra cash? What happens to the money if I ‘overpay’? Does it go to the next person beyond them or does it sit in a little escrow account in that company? 😉 Do they pocket it? Give it as change? What if I underpay? I’d kinda feel shitty if I was a few cents short, like – ‘hey you’re not quite cool enough for me to pay the whole thing..’
And who’s the asshole that breaks the ‘pay-it-forward’ chains? “Nah, I’d rather not pay it forward and just take the free stuff.” Jerk. haha You were going to pay for your own anyway!
I wanna go try this tonight.. since I’m not supposed to be eating out and I’m broke as heck – maybe I can get myself a water and pay for someone’s something for the fun of it. Gas maybe? It’s not supposed to be about amount or recognition or return anyway, just the nature of it.
Anyway, just thought those were some interesting questions and maybe someone can clarify these before I make myself look like a turd.
Any others have any awesome ideas out there? What have you done? Has anyone had a complete stranger do something for you that has made your day?
