My Cup Runneth Over


white chocolate mochas. caramel macchiatos. vanilla lattes. oh my.


My wallet currently has about four Starbucks gift cards crammed inside.
Varying in amounts from 9 dollars to 19 cents.

And because I'm a brainwashed American consumer under the spell of that green and white mermaid-siren,
I will end up using every single plastic penny.

eventually.

Last time we scurried to the 'bucks drive-thru,
we were touched by an angel driving a Ford Bronco.

If the words,
"they already paid for your drinks"
isn't heaven sent,
then I don't know what is.

Perhaps it was the sunshine
or
a random act of kindness
or
Daniel and I looked like we really needed a caffeine fix that morning...

I jokingly lamented that we should've ordered some breakfast sandwiches too.
and one of those cake pop things that I can never justify buying.

Seriously though,
the Ford Bronco Angel could've paid for an extra sugar packet
and my day would be made,

from a little sneak peek of good in the world.

amen

xoxo

ohhh i'm with you there. i <3 starbuck coffee. sometimes i have to try and resist it! lol

it's so nice that someone paid for your drink already. don't you just wish you can say thanks to them ? :]

I've always wondered how that works. How do they actually pay for your drink before they know what you are going to buy? Do they just give Starbucks $10 and say "this should cover it"? I have heard of people doing that before and was just kind of confused by how they do it.

I LOVE this!!! Makes me so happy. What a blessing! I always spend every last cent on gift cards, too!

That is such a sweet story. Oh those Ford Bronco angels.

If I had starbucks gift cards, I'd be there everyday. I can resist the call of that strange green and white siren.

I work at Starbucks and this happens multiple days, every single day. It's so fun to watch it happen and be a part of it.

I'm a fellow Starbucks addict too! And I'm far from an angel but I've done that before...just because, well, I felt like "being a day maker". :) It's nice to think you're part of making the world a happier place I guess.
