Coffee shop customers pay it forward

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Customers at shops in eastern Birmingham, Hoover and Vestavia Hills are paying it forward by anonymously picking up the tabs of others.

A Starbucks spokeswoman said the Seattle-based company promoted
a Cheer Pass program in 2007 to remind customers to spread kindness, but the recent phenomenon is "consumer-driven."

Baristas at the shops also reported episodes where people who were in front of the line in the drivethru paid for the person's order in the car behind them.
