A deaf woman has claimed that she found a ‘horrible’ note on her ‘receipt from a café’.
Ashley, who goes by the TikTok username @ashley_deafvibe, has gone viral after sharing a video about what supposedly happened to her when she visited Dutch Bros.
In a clip to her followers, the woman said: “Many of you guys know that I am deaf and I read lip. My voice is not perfect.
“I went to go try this place out for the first time. Today, I went to go order a drink and it was a little bit awkward, it was a little bit, you know, trying to order a drink at a new place I haven’t been to.”
She continued: “When I get to the window I get the wrong order. I want to say this on TikTok, for workers to have a lot of patience with people with disabilities.
“We are like you, we try to order food and stuff like that like everyone else. When I get the receipt, this, ouch. It says, ‘The most difficult customer ever’.”
