Florida Dunkin’ Donuts employees still can’t get no respect

Dunkin’ Donuts worker pistol-whipped over botched coffee order” (NY Post)

As soon as I read the headline, I just knew it was going to be somewhere in Florida. Maybe not Orlando, but c’mon, somewhere in Florida, right?

Right. Lauderhill, Fla, to be exact.

The deep fried beatdown took place after a Dunkin’ employee, Rajay Hall, served the wrong flavor iced coffee to a customer.

“The girl came in. She was getting upset,” said Hall in the video above. “She was screaming at me, just like cursing at me.” Hall pleaded with her to let him make it right.

“I made a mistake, I’ll do everything I can to fill that mistake,” he said. “I asked them, ‘What do they want in the coffee?’ She was like, ‘I don’t know, just make back the coffee.'”

[Alexis] Longo allegedly tried to hit Hall, but her husband Jeffrey Wright intervened and allegedly assaulted him instead. A security camera in the store captured the entire altercation, which started with punching and escalated to Wright beating Hall with a gun.

The couple were arrested and Longo was charged with battery, while Wright was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

It’s not the first time this year that a Florida Dunkin Donuts has been in the news. You might recall earlier this year, when a Ft. Lauderdale woman went off on an ill-advised tirade at a Dunkin’ employee for not giving her a receipt with her order and and then posted it online, setting off a large scale social media backlash against her.

To be fair, this kind of stuff happens in every city, it just seems to stick a little stronger when it happens in Florida. After this, though, Dunkin’ really needs to put a tip jar on the counter for their beleaguered employees.

    A bit too much sugar in that coffee?
    Speaking to the the “Tip Jar” Idea?..
    I’ll wager the farm – someone would steal that too.
