“I’ve been learning ASL just so you can have the same experience as everyone else,” the note read, according to Piracha's Facebook post.

Piracha responded with excitement.

“Oh, I gotta love this place," Piracha wrote in the caption. "Starbucks woman cashier, she wrote it to me and she knew I am deaf. I am surprised she learning sign language because I attend to Starbucks 3 times in a week. She asked me ‘what you want drink?’ in sign language.”

Piracha also wrote that he was blessed to have a cashier like her.

The post garnered over 2,000 shares and 6,000 likes in three days.
