Man Impersonates Cop To Get Donut Discount


Dunkin’ Donuts worker Michelle Hoeltk told cops that Barry was a regular customer who had been 'abusing his discount by coming in on the weekends with his family and demanding the discount,' The Smoking Gun reported.

She added that Dunkin Donuts managers decided to 'no longer offer him the discount because of his abuse.'

Barry has been charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer and improper exhibition of a firearm. He was booked into the Pasco County jail, from which he was released last night after posting $5150 bond.


Hmmm… If you are going to break laws… at least do it for something worthwhile.

The Monk - Matthew Lewis

The book was written way back in 1796 (that would explain the language) and it was completed in just 10 weeks. Not entirely sure how the book would have been received back in the day, but I found the story extremely believable (Surprisingly, even the parts about sorcery and conjuring).

The characters have been beautifully defined through out the book. The sub-plots seamlessly weave into the story, forming a rather disturbing combination of religion and superstition. At times the book seems crude… vulgar… even obscene! That said, it still doesn't seem out of place. Perhaps because of the language.

Hate it when people make a big deal of a pointless occasion. I mean… seriously! What's the point? What's so special? You need some specific dates to make people feel special?

At times, there might be compulsions. At times, one might just need an excuse to present a gift and the occasion presents such an opportunity. Understandable. But these are personal. It is between the individuals concerned and only between them! If the person giving the gift wants to share, it is different. If the person receiving the gift wants to share, they will share on their own. None of this merits / warrants the attention from general public or your friends or your circle!

'What gift? What you got? What she gave? What he gave?' Abbey maadar chodon… apna kaam karo! Khud ki life itniiiii boring hai that you feel the need to peek into other's lives??!
