CT Starbucks Pay-It-Forward Chain Tops 800 Cars

There must be some holiday spirit in those red cups after all, because a pay-it-forward chain at the Starbucks drive thru in Newington, Connecticut has been going since Tuesday morning and shows no signs of stopping. As of yesterday, 780 customers had paid for the order of the person behind them, and according to a customer's tweet this morning, it's reached at least 870. (It kind of makes that Reno, Nevada pay-it-forward chain of 73 cars look a little weak.) In any case, the Connecticut chain was no doubt bolstered by a report from Good Morning America, which you can watch below. Warning: an out-of-tune Christmas carol intro awaits.
