Sunshine in the rain

today, I was in line for the drive through at dunkin donuts, and a woman TOTALLY cut me off. hard to explain the actual logistics, but when I looked up from clipping coupons to give her a quizzical look (read "did you just cut me off, bitch?) she realized she made a mistake.

and it was an innocent mistake.. on account she wasn't paying attention. but either way.. now she was ahead of me in the drive-through lane. she did some frantic arm waving (read "oh my god I'm so sorry, I'm a total dumbass") and I smiled from my car and waved her ok.

turns out she gave the cashier $2 to put towards my order to apologize for cutting me off.

who says the sun can't shine when it's raining?

That's sweet! Here in MA someone will cut ME off then flip me the bird. Gotta love Yankee hospitality.

I did pay for the coffee in the car behind me a couple of times during the holidays. I feel kind of bad but in the Starbucks drive-thru line I asked what they ordered first... difference between a $2 coffee and a $5 macchiato.

i am still reeling from the drive-thru dunkin donuts! maybe if we had anywhere to drive-thru, we could pay for one another's drinks. and susie, drive-thru starbucks? i might never leave my car! it's nice to know that people are still nice, somewhere out there!
