New Bedford Coggeshall Street Honey Dew Gets Pranked
It's that time of year again, when people strive to be more giving, more friendly, more neighborly, and try to love one another.
Drive-thru windows have become a common location to do things like "pay it forward," where strangers pay for each other's orders as a random act of kindness.
Occasionally, people will share their "pay it forward" stories on their social media accounts. While it's nice to see, it is a little predictable.
We thought it might be entertaining to go to a New Bedford drive-thru and try to get a "pay it backward" going. We weren't really sure how it would work, but we guessed it would start with us ordering a bunch of food, getting it, then pointing to the car behind us suggesting that they pick up the tab as a "pay it backward" feel-good move.
We went to the Honey Dew on Coggeshall Street New Bedford, huddled up in the parking lot and made a plan. I went through the drive-thru first, ordering a linguica breakfast sandwich that the server recommended, a half-dozen donuts and an iced coffee.
Gazelle was in his car behind me and just ordered a medium coffee.
Then, the good part came. I pulled up to the window and tried to "pay it backward."
The results were as confusing as we had hoped and we almost got arrested, which is always fun. Take a look at the video and watch Gazelle and I try to "pay it backward." We don't suggest trying this on your own.
