Starbucks Barista Helps Deaf Customer Place Order Using Sign Language Via Drive-Thru Video Screen

On November 3, an extremely gracious Starbucks employee named Katie Wyble at a location in St. Augustine, Florida, pleasantly surprised customer Rebecca King when the barista suddenly appeared on the drive-thru video screen to help her place her order in Sign language. Since that time, King has received thousands of messages of support and video shares for which she was extremely grateful.

Thank you for sharing my video all over the world. That means a lot to me and deaf community. I really hope we will get what we want for ASL drive thru everywhere. And thank you for support us and deaf community. Please keep sharing and spread the words. Love you! Deaf rocks!
