Pay-It-Forward Chain In Winnipeg Lasts For 3 Hours

Winnipeg’s residents are at it again.

According to Yahoo News, customers at a Tim Hortons coffee shop in Winnipegstarted a chain of goodwill that ended up extending to 228 lucky residents on Friday.

“One generous customer at the restaurant on Beaverhill Blvd. started a chain of customers paying for the person behind them that lasted about three hours,” an employee told CBC News.

Troy Thompson, who manages the restaurant, told the news source that the energy among the staff and customers was infectious.

“They were calling out the numbers, ‘We’re at 162,’ and they made a really big deal of it,” he said. “I think that’s what helped keep it going because nobody wanted to be the one who broke that streak.”

Eventually, the streak of holiday cheer did end when a man opted to not to pay for the three coffees ordered by the person behind him, despite the fact that his own coffees had been paid for, reported Yahoo News.
