Ok, so I finished the whole article. Maybe it was legitimate, but I'm telling you, I wouldn't have paid it. Not at all. I have however, bought meals for people who've needed it. I've fed people in areas that are known to be populated with people who are homeless. I've been doing that for years. That's what paying it forward means to me. Not paying for someone's meal that is already in line with money to pay for their own meal, which means they don't need the money. To me it's the people who truly need it that benefit from paying it forward.
