250 “Merry Christmas” Idiots Pay It Forward

1449697576838Call me a scrooge but this is bizarre.  In Lakeland, FL, (a bit East of Tampa), 250 customers responded to “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”, and paid it forward 250 times during a 6 hour span. This started it:

“She said, ‘If you don’t mind, I want to pay for the next lady’s order. But I want you to tell her that I said, ‘Have a Merry Christmas,’ not ‘Happy Holidays,” Figueroa explained.

Don’t these people get it that in the end, you still paid for McDonalds. Whether it was your order or the next person’s, it doesn’t matter.

Nothing was gained here, other than people paying for each other’s McDonalds and making a complete stranger feel awkward and obligated to pay for the next person.
