Print out this coupon for a buy-one-get-one-free Jamba Juice, which expires tomorrow.
Step into the elevator, where an attractive brunette says, "Hi." Return her greeting and wonder if she would like a free Jamba Juice, and perhaps a good cuddle. Not out loud.
Drive to the nearest Jamba Juice. As you walk toward the establishment, notice an Asian woman also heading in the same direction. She is your likely target.
When you enter, another attractive brunette is already buying something. Behind her is an older woman. The Asian woman gets in line behind her and begins fidgeting with her cell phone. Try to figure out some way to ask her if she would like a free smoothie. Fail to bother her and get out of line, waiting for another mark. Some other people come in, but they speak Spanish, and you don't want to deal with a language barrier.
Lament that the attractive brunette was this close to being your hapless victim. Notice that a large bearded man is now poised to order.
Walk up beside him and say, "Excuse me. Do you want a free smoothie?"
He gives you a glance. "No," he says.
Pull out the coupon and explain to him that you have a buy-one-get-one-free coupon, and you are alone. A little surprised, he says sure. "We'll go half and half," he says. Ignore him.
Go up to the cashier, order a Strawberry Whirl, and hand the woman the coupon. "Buy one get one free?" she asks, looking at the man behind you.
Still a little confused, he orders a Strawberry Nirvana, but in the Original size, which is larger than you intended to get. Upgrade your own order. "I thought it was a scam!" he says.
Say, "I'm just doing good work."
"You're a blessing," the cashier says. Pay for the drinks, ignoring the fact that the man pulled out his wallet.
She comes back with the receipt to sign. "You're a blessing," she repeats. "God is watching, and it will be coming back to you."
You sign. "Thanks!" says the man, and it's the most sincere gratitude you have heard in a long time. It actually makes you feel good to hear, to have caused such a reaction in someone.
Wait for your drinks, but don't talk to each other. That would be awkward. When the smoothies arrive, hand his to him and take your own.
"Thanks," he says again. "That was really cool of you."
Say, "You're welcome."
Plan to do it again tomorrow.

You're a good man, Charlie Brown.
Whoa. Each heart is a different color! That's hardcore hearting there.
You are such a good-hearted person. I think the world should reward you by having tomorrow provide you with a cute girl to enjoy the fruits of your coupon instead of a bearded dude. (Not that bearded dudes aren't cool - I am in love with one - but I assume they are not exactly your type in the way that pretty brunettes are...)
I agree! Are you listening, world?
Aw, I feel partly responsible!
I should go get another tomorrow. Yum!
Thanks for pointing it out to me!
You should go get another tomorrow, and give a free one to someone else.
actually, the exact same thing happened to my mother and i. This woman in jamba juice saw us ordering and told us she had two buy-one-get-one coupons, so she gave us one. i thought it was really nice of her :D GOOD KARMA IS COMING TO YOU.
Awww, yay!! I'm going to pass out some coupons tomorrow too. They expire; they'll be worthless soon anyway!
Would that I could, good sir. Alas, I have no Jamba Juice near me, and the nearest juicebars - while recognising me as a "regular", do not have any 2-for-1 coupons. I will, however, keep my eye open for such advertising.
that's so awesome of you!
I don't know if I would be willing to drive to DC just to give someone a free smoothie.
okay, that's a lie. I probably will.
and this story made my day.
Aw, I used to do that with leftover food points in college. It's nice, isn't it?
It is! Why let things go to waste?
Snaps for good deads. I love that of all the hawt potentials, the beneficiary ended up being a random bearded dude.
This totally brightened my day. If there were a Jamba Juice here I would do the same tomorrow as well.
I say that tomrrow there shall be only cute girls in Jamba Juice! Cute girls and you. All day.
You are a blessing and God is watching!! Now... put on some pants!!!
I am wearing pants. It's a shirt I'm not wearing.
I'll send cute brunette karma vibes your way.
Aww! That's so nice. One time I was in line to buy tickets to see a Broadway show and this woman who had season tickets gave me one of hers since her season ticket pal wasn't able to come to the show, and she didn't let me pay for it. It was pretty cool. People doing randomly nice things really makes up for all the shitty people that exist. Go you!
