For many of us, a drive-thru is a mindless convenience we take for granted. For a deaf person, a drive-thru can be prohibitively difficult or even an impossibility. That’s why a recent video of a deaf woman using new technology to order a drink at Starbucks is going massively viral.
On Tuesday, 28-year-old Floridian Rebecca King shared a video of her most recent coffee run. In it, she drives up to the drive-thru and a barista asks for her order. Rather than answering, she signs “hello.” A few seconds later, the barista appears on a monitor and the two begin an exchange in sign language. King posted the video to her Facebook page with the caption, “Starbucks! This is what I’m talking about!” Since then, it’s been viewed over 7 million times.
