What happens when a teenage boy is told that a breastfeeding mom is grossing people out in a Starbucks? Probably not what you think.
In today’s “stereotype-busting” news, an awesome teenaged boy, a barista at Starbucks, stuck his neck out in honor of a breastfeeding mom.
Huffington Post reports:
Ottawa mom Julia Wykes was running errands with her 5-month-old son one morning when she decided to stop at Starbucks to grab a coffee to go. While waiting in line, however, her baby became cranky, so she sat down to nurse him.
Suddenly, a middle-aged woman marched up to the counter and loudly complained to the barista, “Could you get that woman to stop doing that in public? It’s disgusting.”
The barista, a young man in his late teens, said he would “take care of it” and walked over to Wykes. But instead of heeding the complaining customer’s request, he did something else: He offered the nursing mother a free refill, handed her a voucher for a free drink, and said, “I’m sorry you had to deal with such unpleasantness today.”
So there you go, world. The stereotype of the sex-crazed, self-centered teenage boy who would rather chase girls than take care of kids has been proven false!
