A woman has praised a barista who came to her rescue after a man started harassing her. Watch below:
Avery Spencer was trying to do some work at a Starbucks in Orem, Utah, when a stranger came and sat right next to her.
The 23-year-old quickly became anxious when the man continuing to speak to her despite her efforts to cut their conversation short.
Concerned for her safety, Avery began filming the interaction.
Luckily, however, barista Tiffany LeMair Clark, 34, noticed that something was wrong and that Avery was feeling uncomfortable, so went over to check on her and refill her drink.
In a video posted to her TikTok account, Avery explains: "This man comes and sits down next to me and he will not leave me alone.
"I've made it super obvious I do not want to talk. I mention my husband six times. I tell him I'm working on something very time-sensitive, and I don't have time to talk. He will not leave me alone."
This is when Tiffany goes over to see what is going on.
Avery says: "As she goes down to pick up my empty cup, she leans down and whispers and says, 'We've been having an issue with this man. If he makes you uncomfortable, let us know'.
"She basically lets me know that they are going to be watching me, and they know that this man is harassing me, which was already so comforting to hear."
Feeling upset and panicked by the situation, Avery told the staff member that she was just going to leave.
After getting up to go, Tiffany and her colleagues went over to her and said they were going to remove the man so that she could stay, as they had already had some problems with him before.
However, Avery decided that it was best that she left as she wanted to be alone.
Praising Tiffany and her team for their support, Avery said: "They were just so observant. They were just immediately there and helpful and I'm just grateful for that.
"So, thank you to those baristas."
Since the video was posted, it has been viewed more than two million times, with hundreds piling into the comments to praise Avery and Tiffany.
One user said: "Women helping women. Love it."
While another added: "We should flood them with good reviews. I love that location so much."
