Starbucks representative gets more than $16K in tips in the wake of declining to serve a client who wasn’t wearing a cover
More than $16,000 has been raised for a Starbucks representative after a client posted on Facebook that the barista wouldn’t serve her at a San Diego area since she wasn’t wearing a veil.
All gifts to the page are considered “individual blessings” to Gutierrez, Cowan composed.
A page was set up after a client posted an image of Gutierrez in his veil at a Starbucks grumbling that she wasn’t served when she came in without a cover, resisting the province’s rules.
“Meet Lanen from Starbucks who wouldn’t serve me cause I’m not wearing a veil. Next time I will sit tight for cops and bring a clinical exclusion,” Amber Lynn Gilles wrote in a Facebook post that has been shared multiple times.
As of May 1, San Diego County has expected occupants to wear face covers in most open settings, including when getting food at a café. In its online notification, the district said that “everybody should help secure others by following wellbeing orders.”
“We can’t anticipate that law implementation should ensure each individual is wearing a face covering. In any case, on the off chance that you don’t wear one, you can be referred to or not permitted into organizations, on travel or in different regions,” the area said.
Cowan disclosed to KGTV he has been stunned to perceive what number of individuals are giving.
“I set it at $1,000 feeling that was a range yet we would be fortunate on the off chance that we hit like $250, and when we hit $100 I was overpowered by that,” he told the outlet.
“Everyone is coming together for someone for doing what they should do and attempting to secure every other person,” he included. “It just goes to show you there are many good individuals out there and that exceeds the awful.”
He said he intends to give all the cash to Gutierrez and that it’s dependent upon him to choose what he needs to do with it. He shared a screen capture of a discussion with Gutierrez and an image of him on the GoFundMe to show he has been in contact with him.
Gutierrez posted a video on Facebook on Tuesday expressing gratitude toward his benefactors. He said that his fantasy is to turn into an artist and that he will utilize the assets to seek after that objective.
“With this gift, I can make these fantasies a reality. I can feel my enthusiasm surprisingly better now,” he said.
