900 Cars Paid It Forward At Minnesota Dairy Queen
Have you ever ordered something at a drive-up window then when you pull up to pick up your order you find out that someone in the car ahead of you had already paid for your order? If this has happened to you what did you do? Did you buy the next guy's order?
Well, this is what recently happened at a Dairy Queen in Brainerd, Minnesota. But this time the chain of paying-it-forward didn't just go on for a few cars. It went on for almost two-and-a-half days.
After people kept buying for each other one after the other in the DQ drive-thru they started posting about it on social media. Then folks apparently just jumped in their cars are drove over to get in line and be a part of the fun.
KARE 11 quotes DQ Store Manager Tina Jensen as saying one man paid for the car behind him, spawning a chain of kindness that spanned nearly two and a half days, across over 900 vehicles.
I've spent a lot of time in this northern Minnesota resort town and I've enjoyed a Blizzard or two from the Dairy Queen at 522 C Street Northeast. I happen to know first hand that there are a lot of great people in this community.
