Today’s Cup 202 was transacted at Starbucks, zip code 97071. It was a bit of a surprise for me and a couple of unsuspecting patrons queued up in my rear-view. As the barista handed over my soy latte and attempted to ring up the coffee for the driver behind me, she smiled and said: “I guess you’re off the hook on this one!” My expression must of made my confusion clear as she then said: “Something happened with the order, and it didn’t ring up accurately, just go on through–it’s ok…or you could get the driver behind them?” I jumped at the chance and laughed a bit, joking: “You can’t throw me off my plan, after all, when I come to the drive-thru, I have to get someone’s coffee!” It all worked out as it should. So here’s to another day down in the mission of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope. And, the bonus, it’s Snowman Cookie time…’Tis the Season!

Today’s Cup 201 was transacted at Starbucks, zip code 97071. As I pulled into the busy drive-thru, I notice 3 teachers from my school. I thought it would be the perfect surprise, to buy each of the ladies’ cup of kindness from the drive-thru. As I placed my order via the speaker, I also explained that I wanted to buy the coffees for the ladies at the counter–in the store. This was only possible due to the expansive wall of windows between the drive-thru and coffee shop. I thought I was so sneaky! Unfortunately, two of the three ladies were to too quick, and I only caught one of the orders. I continued on and followed the original plan and purchased the coffee for the unsuspecting driver behind me as well. Once we all arrived at school, we enjoyed a round of thanks and a couple of laughs. It was the best cup of coffee those two never received!
All in fun and all in the spirit of a cup of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Hope. Until next time.
Today’s Cup 200 was transacted at Starbucks, zip code 97071. It was a simple pass of the drive-thru, and a $5.00 cup of goodwill for the unsuspecting patron behind me. I’m not sure what the driver of the grey sedan actually ordered, but I hope it made his/her day. It was another day down in the mission of Fully Caffeinated Generosity and Kindness. Until next time.
