A Starbucks employee’s secret message
A post on Instagram revealed the secret message a Starbucks employee used to save a customer.
This happened to a young woman in the United States, where her story became a trend since the employee of the famous coffee chain took an initiative that was welcomed by the victim’s mother and shared on social networks.
The case was recorded in the town of Corpus Christi, Texas, when a young woman was quietly sipping coffee in the Starbucks store when a much older person approached her and tried to speak to her.
Since it was an open place, one of the baristas realized something was happening and decided to intervene since the young woman was alone in a corner of the popular cafeteria, quietly studying.
The barista’s action was to fill a glass of hot chocolate to give to the girl, so he walked up to her and said, “The extra hot chocolate someone forgot to take.”
But on the glass he wrote the message: “Are you alright? Would you like us to intervene? If so, remove the lid from the jar.”
When the girl received the jar of chocolate, she was surprised but quickly realized that it was a call for help.
However, she didn’t manage to use the joker, but she appreciated the concern of the site workers, so she took the jar with her and discussed it with her mother, who was responsible for spreading the Grown and Flown Instagram on social media.
It also became clear that the young woman did not take advantage of the help offered but was “grateful for people who take care of other people”. PS: She felt safe and didn’t remove the lid, but she let the workers know. She told me that the entire team was watching her the rest of the time she was there.
It’s not the first time a story of this style has gone viral, as there are many that are drawing attention in these digital spaces.
