Get Sedated With A Ramone, Rise Up With Rise Against And The Deftones, Remember The Fifth of November (In June) And More On This Tuesday In Dallas.

It’s an unspoken rule: If you’re at the drive-through window and the cashier tells you that the person in front of you decided to pay for your meal, then you pay that good deed forward and, presuming theirs wasn’t an outlandish order, you pay for the food being bought by the person in the car behind you.

The people of Scottsburg, Indiana, a town about 50 miles to the north of Louisville, know the ins and outs of this rule quite well, it would seem. According to an Associated Press report, a pay-it-forward chain at a McDonald’s drive-through there recently lasted a whopping 167 drivers.

Not for nothing, but that 168th driver is kind of a douchebag, huh?

So we know that, upon getting excited about one of the following events that are happening around town today, you’ll send this link out to a friend so that they too can become aware of all that’s going on here in Dallas. Because that’s what good people do.
