Bought coffee for strangers.
Last time around when I bought coffee at Dunkin Donuts for strangers I had someone bow to me. Pretty cool. I wanted to repeat the experiance.
After dropping off the magazines I drove to a different Dunkin Donuts than the one I went to last time. It was a Ghost Town. There was only one other person in there. She was older then I am. She ordered a coffee. I stepped up and said, "Let me pay for that, I'm doing this thing called Project Nice and today I'd like to buy your coffee."
She blinked- disbelieving. "Are you sure?"
I stepped forward and handed over my debit card, "Yep."
"Well I hope something nice happens to you today."
I placed my order for breakfast and while I was doing that a father and his two sons came in. I told the cashier, that I would buy his stuff too."
There was a big debate between the father and the sons about which donuts they wanted and if they were going to get strawberry milk or chocolate. After the father ordered I stepped in and said, "Can I pay for that, I'm doing this thing today where I'm buying people's coffee."
Now the father had already ordered his breakfast, his coffee, two donuts for his sons and a strawberry milk. Clearly it was more then a coffee.
"Oh I don't know."
I had already handed over my card to the cashier while he was thinking about it, she swiped my card.
"how about this," I said, "why don't you pay for someone else's breakfast."
"I'll do that. Thank you."
As we were talking another family walked in. Perfect.
I walked out with my breakfast and coffee in hand and a good deed was pasted on.
This gives me the idea for PROJECT SUPER NICE... more to come on this later.
Would I do it again: Yep. PROJECT SUPER NICE
Cost: $16.00 between my breakfast, the woman's coffee and the breakfast for the family.
Effort: Mostly it was hard to explain the situation... sometimes I forget not everyone is doing Project Nice.
Time: 5 Minutes (the same amount of time I would have taken me to wait for my food.)
Personal note: I'm starting to hit a wall. This is around the same time in December when I started to hit the wall. This time around I'm not as motivated, maybe it's the 10 days of snow, but I need some cheerleaders.
