CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Late last Saturday, Brandy Roberson's high school aged daughter was studying at the Starbuck's located on Staples and SPID. While she was studying, a man approached her, and the staff noticed he was being loud.

"I guess he was very loud and animated, she wasn't, she wasn't intimidated by it, however, this Starbucks employee came up to her and handed her this cup," Robertson said.

On the cup, it said;

"Are you okay? Do you want us to intervene? If you do, take off the lid."

"She said she was like 'gasp'. She looked up and all of the employees were staring at her, ready to help, she was so touched by that," the mother explained.

Brandy says the man went back to sit with his friends when he noticed that her daughter and the staff were communicating with each other. She said that she is grateful for the staff that helped her daughter out, even if she was not in any danger.

"A great example for other people, for other businesses, I don't know if that Starbucks trains their baristas that way, if they don't, my gosh take a note from this crew," she said.
