A Starbucks in Reno, Nevada had a chain of people paying for each others' coffee that went on for a whopping 73 cars. Starbucks gossip blog Starbucks Melody says a reader alerted them to the pay it forward scheme, which occurred at the coffee shop's drive thru window. (Head over for a photo of a barista holding up a piece of paper with tallies on it to mark the cars in the chain.) This is a thing people do at Starbucks: they pay for each others' coffees, although not usually for 73 orders in a row. It's a nice thing, not TipsForJesus nice, but still plenty nice. Happy Holidays, everybody.
