Deaf Virginia Man Touched By Note From Starbucks Barista (Photo)


Virginia man Ibby Piracha took to Facebook to praise a Starbucks employee who had learned American Sign Language to communicate with him. The Facebook post has since gone viral.

Piracha initially shared the image of a note he’d received from the female cashier on Facebook on Feb. 19.

“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.
