Cool Idea #27: Pay It Backward

Occasional contributor Cylinda Nickel offered this idea on Facebook and we had to share it:

"Don't you love shocking people? I paid for the people behind me at the drive through and secretly watched their faces. He was shocked, she covered her face with her hands. They honked, waved, and blew me kisses. It takes so little of our time and money to bless others- Why not pay it backward today. You know you want to!!!"

She added that an imitator in Canada did it at a Tim Horton's today.

This holiday season, why don't you give it a try?

I like to pay the toll on the highway of the folks behind us. That's easy because you know the exact amount. Not sure how you would know how much someone's order was if they came after you?

You can probably ask the attendant you pay how much the next one is, as they've generally taken the next person's order while you drive up to the window.
