Last Tuesday, April 23, I was in the Starbucks drive-through at around 9:30 a.m. While I was fumbling with a handful of change with one hand, the other hand that was steering slipped and accidentally sounded the horn.
I was not mindful of its effect until I reached the window where the server explained that the driver of the car that had just pulled away had paid for my latte.
In embarrassment, I realized that my benefactor, a woman in a blue car, had surmised from the “beep” that I was not in a very good mood and was wanting to brighten my day with a complimentary cup of joe!
What a wonderful gesture, and yes, it did brighten my day.
Thanks for your kindness.
