Thank You, Stranger

Today I walked in to Starbucks where I was planning to get a little work done this morning. I put my stuff down, went up to the counter to order. There was a lady in line in front of me. One of the people behind the counter said "I'll be right with you Geoffrey" (they know me by name now.)

When I ordered the usual (tall coffee) the lady in front of me said "O, you could have just had my free drink." I looked at her, she looked at the girl behind the counter, then said "I bought a pound of coffee beans, can he have my free drink? (you get a free cup of coffee when you buy a pound of coffee).

So they handed me a cup of coffee...free!

Thank you stranger - whoever you are!
