Buy a little coffee..

When I lived in Minneapolis, years ago, I used to go through a caribou coffee drive thru every single morning. I knew all of the employees there and had a habit of, once a week, buying the coffee for the stranger behind me in line. I'd throw an extra five dollars in - and these guys would always surprise the person behind me.

Today, at the Hartford airport, I bought coffee for the person in line behind me. She was an airport employee and by the look on her face, you'd think she'd won the lottery. It was less than $2.00 out of my pocket, and I truly believe it changed her day.

That - and that fact that although I don't have my caribou coffee drive thru anymore - I do have dunkin donuts employees at the bradley airport who know what I drink. Guess I travel too much. ;)

What was your random act today?
