drive thru AOK

Post by happyrain » Sat Dec 22, 2012 6:11 pm

something happened to me last week i forgot to share. an aok act of kindness at the starbucks drive thru. i thought this was very cool. was getting a coffee and apparently a lady in the 3rd car in front of me anonymously paid for the last 3 cars behind her. i was late for work but the free coffee made up for a lot ! heh :) my friend told me someone is doing similar for people that have holds in the target stores. what a great way to spread a little christmas cheer =*) <3

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing this. Last week I was food shopping and on the way home out started to rain. A kind woman waiting for the same bus as me offered to share her umbrella with me. She covered us both for over ten minutes. We had a pleasent conversation too. Aok's energize the heart, don't ya think? <3 Thanks again! Love you guys. Daron

Ok, I'm lost. What is an AOK? The random act of kindness I understand... :loves :loves

I love your story Eric! That was really awesome, made me smile to think about someone doing that! Jody, I never heard of AOK either but maybe it just means Act Of Kindness?? Kinda cute they came up with a little nickname for it. It reminds me of that movie "Pay it forward."

The idea of strangers helping one another, like Daron sharing the umbrella ;) and the Starbucks lady paying for the next 3 people -- it reminds me of a story Osho told, I read this years ago. He said if you are in a crowded train station, and you ask someone to watch your luggage while you run off to the bathroom -- they will guard it with their life. It doesn't matter if the person you asked, is actually a thief! :shock: Who might've already been eyeing your luggage intent on stealing it! :shock: Why will they guard your luggage with your life?? Because you trusted them. That really moves people; they want to live up to your expectation of trust.

I thought that was just beautiful! Imagine that: Imagine telling a thief (And you don't know it's a thief, of course) "I trust you," and he feels this little bloom in his heart. :happy I don't mean to sound all sentimental and gushy but that just really gets me! :kiss:

Thanks for sharing these! Love to you guys! Michele :loves

:lol: Jody, I am glad you asked...because I wasn't sure either. :mrgreen:
Thanks Michele for enlightening us and for sharing the story about trust that Osha provided. :kiss:
Of course, it may not be a good idea in an airport to do that, though...unless you want to have a lovely visit with security officials. :)

Trust is a beautiful thing! :sunflower:
Love,
Sandy

Sandy how true!!!! You're right, lol, that's too funny, we've really changed things haven't we? :lol: You're not allowed to abandon your luggage anymore. Well it's hard to maneuver in the bathroom with it! What are you supposed to do? :lol:

Love to everyone! Peace to you all! Happy New Year! :kiss: :loves Michele

Hi Michele and Eric! :hithere

Oh my!! those extra large bathroom stalls in airports are never quite big enough are they? :shock: You should see my carry-all! It is usually stuffed to the max with all kinds of things I think I can't live without but then never touch the entire trip...and my travel purse is a donkey load in itself! But somehow I manage without doing permanent damage to myself.... or the passengers around me.

Oh well...life is one adventure after another. :)
Happy New Year to you both...I am sooo looking forward to 2013...RIP 2012...

(((((((HUGS)))))))

Me too! It sounds funny to think "2013," doesn't it? I remember being a little kid thinking "Some day it will be 2000" but it didn't seem real to me. ;) And here we are today. LOL! ! ! ! Like that movie "2001: a space odyssey" -- at the time it seemed so far in the future it would never come! :lol:

I remember we used to ask strangers to watch our luggage at the airport . . .sigh . . the good old days, lol! ! ! :lol: :love

Happy New Year everyone! 2013 here we come! :loves Eric your Starbucks story is just incredible, I will remember it for some time. And Daron, your umbrella story too! :sunny:

Hiya Eva, I got to read and enjoy a few of the posts yesterday before life got all crazy and busy for me. (Long story but I now have the cleanest and most organized garage you could find nearly anywhere. :roll: ...something I never thought would happen and, in fact, was not looking forward to the process of it happening. But it's done now and not as painful as I thought it was going to be. :lol: )
Thanks for posting the URL for this site. It truly does lift your spirits doesn't it? :D
