File this story under some much needed good news from last week.

At a Starbucks in Florida, one person started the "pay-it-forward" chain by buying the coffee of the person behind her in the drive thru. It continued for most of the rest of the day.

The impressive thing is that it started up again the next day. However, not everyone was on board with the idea. One local blogger ended the chain, and commented that he felt it placed a guilt trip on the customers to pay for the next person in line.

What do you think? Would you have kept the chain going?
