People must really love the crap out of their Dunkin' Donuts, because it evidently makes them go all nutter on employees there when things aren't done just right.
Or maybe it's just Florida. Or a combination of the two.
Either way, yet another Floridian allegedly went bananas and assaulted a Dunkin' Donuts employee over the wrong order.
CALM DOWN, PEOPLE. IT'S JUST COFFEE AND DONUTS, FOR CRAPSAKE.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, a Largo man allegedly grabbed a Dunkin' Donuts drive-through cashier's arm because she had put chocolate in his coffee and extra bacon on his sandwich.
THERE'S ANOTHER BACON IN MY SANDWICH. THIS AGGRESSION WILL NOT STAND, MAN!
The man, 25-year-old Franklin Robleto, stooped at the D&D's drive-through on 7030 Ulmerton Road about 11:30 p.m. Saturday. Not liking that his coffee was spiked with chocolate and his sandwich had more bacon than what he had originally asked for, Robleto allegedly got out of his car and grabbed the cashier's arm in anger.
Not knowing exactly how to respond to the situation, the cashier threw a cup of coffee at Robleto, which is kind of a good tactic because, as your tongue can attest to many times over, that Dunkin' Donuts coffee is hella hot.
Robleto retaliated to this assault by throwing the tip jar at the cashier.
On Monday, the jig was up, and cops arrested Robleto. He faces a charge of burglary with assault. He was booked into the Pinellas County jail, where he remained Monday in lieu of $150,000 bail.
This isn't the first time someone done lost his or her mind over some Dunkin' Donuts.
Back in June, a Broward woman recorded a crazy rant, berating an employee after she was given the wrong receipt. The video went viral, and the woman became an internet pariah, while the employee was hailed for his professionalism, thus killing the whole point of her making that video in the first place.
In August, a Plantation man didn't get the coffee he ordered at a Dunkin' Donuts, so he responded by pistol-whipping the drive-through worker while his wife egged him on and even urged him to shoot the clerk.
That Dunkin' Donuts makes people loco.
