Reportedly, cases of drive-through generosity are far from uncommon, where the person in the vehicle in front of you has already paid for the food you've ordered.
If you place an order at the Chick-fil-A drive-through off Highway 46 in New Braunfels, Tex., its not unusual for the driver of the car in front of you to pay for your meal in the time it took you to holler into the intercom and pull around for pickup.
The people ahead of you paid it forward, the cashier will chirp as she passes your food through the window.
Confused, you look ahead at the car it could be a mud-splashed monster truck, Mercedes or minivan which at this point is turning onto the highway. The cashier giggles, you take your food and unless your heart is irreparably rotted from cynicism and snark, you feel touched.
