It’s not a new phenomenon, but “paying it forward” sure has become more noticed thanks to social media, and it’s happening many times in a place many people are familiar with: the coffee shop. At the Starbucks in Geneva, it happens most often at the drive-up window, according to manager Tom Appling — one customer offers to pick up the tab for the next person in line, and then the next person does likewise.
Pam Ahern loves paying it forward in the coffee shop line. “When you just feel like you really want to bless someone, or just have somebody have an amazing day, go for it, do it,” she said.
