What a bunch of crap.
I had a light lunch the other day, so I decided to grab a snack at Dunkin Donuts (there is one right in the building where I work, which is AWESOME). I have a few coupons I can’t decide between, so I grab them all and head on over.
I decide I want to use my “99c muffin with a medium beverage” coupon, because I love the chocolate chip muffins. As I head up to the counter, I notice…. no chocolat chip muffins. They don’t even have my fallback option – the cinnamon roll muffin. All I see is pumpkin muffins (WTF is up with that anyway?) and corn muffins (bleh).
Ok, so muffins are out. I shuffle through my coupons and settle on “free hash browns with a breakfast combo” coupon (DD hashbrowns are soooo good). I ask the guy behind the counter if the coupon works with any of the combos on the menu, and he says yes. Excellent, because I like the 2-donut combo but I don’t like any of the breakfast sandwiches. So, of course, when I ask for the 2-donut combo, he tells me that I can’t use the coupon with that combo; Just the breakfast sandwhich ones count.
Uhhhh, ok. I just asked about that and you said yes, but whatever.
(Inside, I’m getting really pissed, but I’m handling it)
So I say screw the coupons and just get the combo anyway. I order my coffee the way I always do – medium iced coffee, cream, 8 splenda (yes, I know… get off my back, ok?). Oops!!! They are out of splenda.
They are out of splenda.
WHAT KIND OF DUNKIN DONUTS IS THIS FUCKING PLACE?!?!?!?!?!?
… is what I wanted to say. Instead, I just said fine, whatever. I usually keep a stash of splenda in the break room at work for when I make coffee. I grab my stuff and sulk back to work.
When I get back, I find my splenda stash is gone, used up by either me or my coworkers.
My Aspergers causes me to like certain specific things in specific ways. When I can’t get my way with things I’m accustomed to having my way with, I get very crabby. And this ruined my day in such a spectacular fashion. I was able to find 5 splenda in my bag. I used those and added some sugar free caramel CoffeeMate for sweetness, but I needed to add 2 sugars to make it drinkable.
At least the donuts were yummy.
