Rule #672 — Never rob a store where scalding hot coffee is right at the victims fingertips.
Her name is Angela, and she manages a Dunkin Donuts in West Haven, Connecticut. Late Saturday night, an armed robber tried to climb into the store through the drive thru service area. Angela grabbed a pot of hot java and threw it in the guy’s face, thwarting the robbery, and causing serious anguish in Mr. Robber Dude’s eyes.
And then, she yelled at the dude, “Go run on Dunkin!”, a take on the coffee chain’s slogan “America Runs On Dunkin”.
Police say the robber is still at large, and they are on the lookout for a dumb man with swollen eye lids.
The story is reminiscent of this classic scene from “Fast Times At Ridgemont High”, where Spicoli distracts a gun wielding robber long enough so that Brad can throw coffee in his face.
