NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Shoshanna Alexandra, a barista at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery, New York, shared a video on her TikTok account of her co-worker allegedly harassing her. She shared the video with the caption, "This is one of many hostel [sic] work harassment/bullying situations that I'd deal with on a daily basis at the NYC Starbucks reserve. Management was well aware of what was going on & sat back and did nothing. #workharrassment #bullyingawareness." In the 13-second long video, she can be heard asking her co-worker why she cursed at her while her co-worker calls her a "s****y a*s worker."

The TikToker's audience, however, had quite a different response than what she would have expected to receive. People in the comment section have been skeptical about the whole story and asked her to tell them about the other side.

The video begins with a shot that shows two workers supposedly dealing with customers when Shoshanna can be heard asking her co-worker, "Why are you cursing at me, did I do something to you?" Her co-worker replies, "You don't do your f*****g job." Shoshanna then replies, "Actually I always do my job." Her co-worker then replies, "You're a s****y a*s worker." The video ends when Shoshanna walks away saying, "Okay, great."

However, viewers were not entirely convinced. One reply on the video, which has got the highest number of likes, read, "Why am I getting the feeling I shouldn’t be on ur side 😭," while another reply read, "Got a feeling I’m in the wrong POV." Someone else noted, "I think I agree with the rest of your coworkers."

However, there were some who sided with the TikToker. One user wrote, "I believe her." When someone asked why, they replied, "Multiple coworkers commented." Nevertheless, most responders seemed to be asking for context as to what led to the argument. Many claimed they could relate with the co-worker as she looked frustrated because she is the one working. User letitgo888 said, "I'm so close to going off on my coworkers like this 😂 someone can only take so much," while another user said, "I mean lets look at whos on bar doing their job and who’s on their phone."

Shoshanna, who goes by the username @shoshiegirl_, had earlier shared another video of her talking about a 's****y' incident. She started the video by calling it "part 5-6-7 of the New York Roastery saga." In the 'recap' of the incident, she said, "It's like Hunger Games up in there," as she talked about a whole bunch of men who came into the roastery looking "super shady" while they were looking around as if "something was about to happen." She then said they went to the break room, after which the whole basement area - where the break room of the roastery is - started smelling like "s**t." She emphasized that the men came with bags full of "fecal matter", left it in the break room, and left the roastery like a flash mob.

She claimed that it was a scare tactic to freak her out as the management and everyone else at that place acted like it was normal while she repeatedly kept saying in the video that it is not "normal everyday stuff."
