Starbucks Spreads Holiday Cheer and Turns (RED)

So there I am in the Starbucks drive through for the usual morning wake-me-up. I get to the window and the barista says “Your coffee was just paid for by the car in front of you.” (who by this time has fled the scene) She proceeds to tell me that every car in front of.
