Barista Does Something Wonderful For Deaf Customer

New Starbucks barista learns ASL for a deaf customer and let's him know by passing this note. "I have been learning ASL so you can have the same experience as everyone else."

Ibby Piracha knows it’s not easy being a deaf person in a hearing world.

That’s why a stranger’s wonderful act has moved him so much.

That stranger was Krystal Payne, a new barista at the Starbucks in Leesburg, Virginia.

Soon after starting at the store, Krystal noticed Ibby and how he was challenged making his regular order.

That’s when Krystal decided to do something wonderful.

Something kind.

Something beyond the barista call of duty.

CBS News’ Steve Hartman has their story.


Here’s to kindness.

Here’s to strangers connecting.

Here’s to thinking about what I can do for someone today.

Here’s that simple inspiring note.
