I think I just got Pay It Forward-ed!

Hey you guys! Guess what just happened to me??! I think I just got Pay It Forwarded (I know, not a word, whatever.) So here's what happened. After I picked Matthew and Molly up from school today, we played for a bit and then we were headed home. I was passing a Wendy's and got the brilliant idea to head through the drive through and get the kids a Frosty. OK, and one for me, too. I can not even tell you when we had a Frosty last. I know Molly wasn't born. I think it might have been when Matthew was 18 months old and we went to Lake Tahoe for Thanksgiving. Anyway, we go through and I order 3 small Frosties. The total was like $3.87. I pull up to pay, and the Wendy's lady goes "That lady paid for you. (pointing to the car in front of me)." I said "What?" I couldn't even comprehend what she was saying. Again "That lady (pointing to where the white Suburban used to be) paid for your order." What!!!? So I drive up quickly to see her and wave a thank you and a wow, you're the best, and she's gone. Totally drove fast so as not to be thanked.

Thank you White Suburban Lady!

I will definitely Pay This Forward! It totally made my afternoon!!!!

4 people had nice things to say:

That is so cool! It makes me want to go out and pay it forward in some way.

P.S. Love Wendy's frosties. We lived practically next door to a Wendy's in Nashville, but I have no idea where the closest one is here in Chicago. Sad. :(
