“It really does work”

I was at a Starbuck's the other day and wanted to see how this thing would work. As a friend and I waited to order from one cashier, a woman walked up to the other cashier and so I asked, "Can I buy you your coffee?" (I was willing to revolutionize it and make a latte...hell, I would make it a double frappaccino with two pumps of vanilla sugar free and extra ice if that's what the lady wanted!) She looked at me with a bit of suspicion and somewhat of a glare and replied with some vehemence, "No, I don't think so."

Feeling somewhat shutdown and wondering about this whole Boom Boom thing, I just turned to order my coffee (double espresso for anyone who cares...). Another guy walked up to the other cashier so not to be so easily discouraged, I offered again, perhaps this time without so much enthusiasm, "Can I buy you your coffee?" This guy's eyes just lit up and he said, "Hell yes you can!" So I paid for his coffee (no opportunity to revolutionize it as he said he was really jonesin' for just a large coffee).

I was feeling pretty good about my efforts, but this is where the story changed me...As I went to pay for mine and my friend's coffees (why not a little boom boom for my friend?) and the barista said, "These are on me...that was pretty cool what you just did."

I guess it really does work, eh?

That's great what you did :) I actually used to work at Starbucks, and every now and then we would have someone come through our drive-threw and pay for the next person's coffee, they would give us 5 bucks or something.

One day around Christmas I had this happen, and for about 30 cars, everyone paid for the next car in line's drinks. It's amazing how such a small act can affect so many.
