The 378-Person-Long Starbucks Line of Good Deeds

Most pay-it-forward lines in which someone pays for the order behind them don’t last more than a few people, if even that. But after a woman at a Starbucks in St. Petersburg, Fla., paid for her iced coffee and the caramel macchiato a customer behind her ordered, the line continued for a whopping 378 people. Everyone accepted their free drink and paid for the customer behind them all the way up until 6 p.m. that night when the 379th person ordered a coffee and declined to pay for the next one. Apparently they didn’t understand the concept of paying it forward, but it’s pretty incredible it lasted that long to begin with.
