Starbucks baristas look out for customer who they believe was in danger
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (KRIS) - Looking out for your neighbor is exactly what a couple of baristas at a Starbucks in Texas recently did.
“I don’t know if that Starbucks trains their baristas that way, but if they do, ‘Bravo!’ If they don’t, take a note from this crew,” Brandy Roberson said.
It was a late Saturday night when Roberson’s high school daughter was approached by a a man as she was studying.
“I guess he was very loud and animated...she wasn’t intimidated by it. However, all of a sudden, this Starbucks employee came up to her and handed her this cup,” Roberson said.
The cup read, “Are you okay? Do you want us to intervene? If you do, take the lid off the cup.”
Roberson said her daughter was “so touched” by the baristas looking out for her.
The man went back to sit with his friends when he noticed that Roberson’s daughter and the Starbucks staff were communicating with each other.
Roberson says she hopes more businesses train their employees to notice when customers may be in danger and on what they can do to help.
