On Monday, a “young man in his mid-to-late 20s” ordered a drink and a Boston cream doughnut at a Tim Hortons in Edmonton and then asked the cashier how many cups of coffee the store sells in a day. After he was told 500, the Globe and Mail reports, he asked the worker to ring up 500 large coffees, for a grand total of $859. The shop handed out free coffees to bewildered and amused customers until Tuesday at 8 a.m., the paper reports. This isn’t the first time in recent months when a stranger has picked up the tab for large groups of strangers. [Globe and Mail, Related]
