A Bojangles customer revealed that he ended a pay-it-forward chain at the chain’s drive-thru

The total for the car behind him was $45—three times the total he was expecting to pay for his own order. 

The customer’s decision, which he shared on TikTok, has sparked discussion about the pay-it-forward practice.

Darius was shocked. “I was looking at her like, what you mean, how you going to ask me something like that?” he says.

“Who’s spending $45 at Bojangles?” he concludes the video. “I don’t mean to sound broke, but I’m not doing that.”
