"Imagine finding out that your boyfriend has a massively pregnant wife that you knew nothing about," one woman's note to the staff at a Dutch Bros. coffee shop reads. "Imagine getting zero hours of sleep because you know you have to work with him and see his stupid, cheating, lying, stupid freaking face — all day. You'd probably just want some coffee to get you through that right?"
Reddit user GoldenBoy2191 shared the note online that they received from a heartbroken woman in the first week of September after simply giving her a free coffee. "Yesterday a woman came through our stand upset, we hooked her up with a drink on us," the post is titled. And after the woman broke down in front of the baristas and told them about her "stupid, cheating, lying" boyfriend who had a pregnant wife at home, the woman wrote that the baristas made sure she had the best — free — coffee drink they could offer her.
"I ugly cried the whole way to work. That was literally the most you could have done for me and I am so grateful for your kindness," she wrote. And after reading the comments from supporters on Reddit, it's clear that something like this isn't new for the coffee chain. One commenter wrote: "I got a free coffee the other day from Dutch Bros, just because I mentioned that it was my first visit to Dutch Bros ever. It was like 3:30 a.m. and I was on my way to the airport. The guy couldn't have been nicer, asking me if it was a late night or an early morning for me." The original poster, Goldenboy2191, wrote back and simply said: "That sounds like the Dutch experience to me."
