Drive-thru customers part of long 'pay it forward' chain

July 17, 2013

Eileen Taylor made her usual stop at a popular Massachusetts doughnut shop, when something unusual happened.

"There was a woman ahead of me and she paid for my drinks, and I thought that was really cool. I thought it was really nice, it was unexpected," said Taylor.

So when she came back a day later, it was her turn.

"I knew that my husband would probably kill me because I just recently lost my job," she told WBZ. Yet she still did the same thing, even though money was tight. What happened next though -- she never could have imagined.

"After that it was like, oh we're three cars deep, four cars deep, and after about the 15th car I started letting the customers know, 'Hey, we're 17 cars in, you can either keep it going or you can take your coffee and go. Either way it's your choice,'" the clerk said.

According to the clerk, 55 customers rolled through the drive-thru back-to-back, each one paying for the next order.

The only reason why the chain ended; There was no one else in line.
