Customers who visited Mike's Old Fashioned Donuts in Spokane Valley Friday morning may have been treated to a surprise when the man in the blue plaid shirt paid for their orders in celebration of his birthday.
The man, who goes by Marty, covered the cost of everyone's order, whether or not it was for one, or one dozen donuts. He spent about an hour and a half in the shop, and in that time paid for approximately 161 donuts, 24 coffees, and 36 other pastries. His bill came to a total of nearly $225.
According to the shop's owner, Mike Britton, his customers regularly pay for the person behind them. However, this is the first time he has ever seen anyone foot the bill for everyone coming and going.
“We told everyone to be sure to thank the guy in the blue plaid shirt. When they did, he told them to just pay it forward,” Britton said.
