Sweet Chick-fil-A Cashier Signs With Shy Deaf Girl
Cailyn Finkel 3/14/2016
Normally Cynthia Walker doesn't like to engage with people in public. She's deaf and feels uncomfortable ordering her own meals and speaking with the wait staff - that was until a Chick-fil-A cashier, Taylor, started communicating with her only in sign language.
Cynthia looked at her mother in disbelief. No one else in the food service industry had ever made that type of attempt to communicate! Her mother nudged her on and Cynthia ordered her meal without having to mouth or say a word! Taylor is no stranger to sign language and the special circumstances of having a deaf loved one! In fact, she has two older family members who are deaf and they're the ones who taught her to sign!
The corporate side of Chick-fil-A even reached out online and posted an open message to Taylor, "It is also our goal to make everyone feel welcome... It was a lovely surprise to receive this message. Great job Taylor. Thank you for using your talents to make our guests feel welcome!" Hopefully Taylor's inspired Cynthia to try signing in public more often!
