Starbucks Drive-Thru Customer Breaks 23-Car Pay-It-Forward Streak: Was His Reason Fair? [VIDEO]
Have you ever pulled into a drive-through and when you got to the window, the cashier told you that the car in front of you paid for your order? That is sure to make anyone's day. This is what one would call "paying it forward," when someone does something for you, but instead of paying that person back directly, you pass it on to another person instead. However, some people feel that sometimes a price is just too much to pay forward.
This happened at a Starbucks Coffee shop, one kind person decided to pay it forward and purchase the person's coffee behind them. After that one act of kindness, it continued down the line, 23 times! Customer after customer paid for the person behind them in line until one man decided to end the streak for a reason he thought was fair.
In a TikTok video, anonymous user im_blessed55 documented his experience in the Starbucks line, which showed he ordered a Venti Frappuccino.
"At Starbucks, they were doing the pay for the person behind you thing. I pulled up and ended a 23 car streak," im_blessed55 stated in the video that, "they tried to set me up. The person behind me bill was [$46] when mine was [$6]."
The video has since been viewed more than 3 million times and has received more than 375.5k comments from people who have different perspectives.
He captioned the video: "How y’all feel about this am I wrong? What would y’all have done? Well, what would you have done? Do you agree with this man's decision to end the streak or not?
