Florida Starbucks barista serves deaf customer with sign language at drive-thru


A Florida Starbucks barista helped a deaf customer order at a drive-thru window and now the video posted to Facebook has gone viral.

On Tuesday, Rebecca King shared the video of her pulling up to a St. John's County Starbucks near St. Augustine. When the employee saw that King is deaf, she turns on the video screen to find King beginning to sign her order.

Much to King's surprise, the barista signs back and the two communicate the order entirely through sign language. A manager at the Starbucks location tells WFLX that the employee is not deaf herself, but happens to be fluent in sign language.

"Share it away! We can change the world," King wrote in her post.

The video has now been viewed over 5.5 million times and shared 156,000 times on Facebook.
