degenerate-afro: How long until the lawsuit happens and Dunkin fires the employee for being reckless?


If a lifetime of watching cartoons has taught me anything, it is this:

The world is made of three kinds of people.

First you got the bggest bunch. They are generally jolly and laugh and have a good time and hope the Roadrunner always gets away.

Then you got another group. A little smaller thn the first and a little more neurotic and more tattoos maybe. But they laugh just as hard as the first group and have better candy. They wouldnt mind just once seeing the Coyote catch and eat that Roadrunner.

Then there is a third group. Much smaller than the other two groups and they have soulless doll eyes with 1000 yard stares. They never laugh out loud really. Sometimes they smile, but that is an even worse spectre than the blank stare. What they want is for the Coyote to be torn/crushed/blowed into bloody bits of Coyote burger (with fur) that are barely able to be kept alive with a lot of trouble ad medical hardware. Furthermore they want each bit of surviving Coyote burger in tortured neverending inhuman pain. At that point this group will sue ACME. You know to help the Coyote and teach ACME a lesson.

Uranus Is Huge!: Farce-Side: The wife switched me from my regular Dunkin Turbo to Maxwell House this morning.  Farking biatch.

Attempted poisoning, if nothing else.  Gah.

Two16: "Go run on Dunkin."?  WTF?


Y'all must be DVR owners. "America runs on Dunkin" commercials run constantly, even in markets without DD.

Ahh.  Thank you.  Now I know that, but jamming that fact into my dangerously overloaded brain has removed my ability to recognize the color orange.  Oh well.  I never much cared for it anyway.

dittybopper: belhade: She'll be fired. Restaurants and stores always insist that you never, ever take on a robber yourself; let them take what they want and then call the police. They're insured against that kind of thing and don't want to risk elevating violence. She went against s.o.p.

It's *PRECISELY* that sort of attitude that encourages robbery, and in fact that makes robbing places like that somewhat lucrative.


As "conservatives" frequently point out when giant corporations are caught with their hand in the public pocket or despoiling the environment, businesses are under no obligation to act out anybody's personal version of "social responsibility".

On the other hand, this woman had no reason to think this loon wasn't coming after HER - and her response was perfectly rational under the circumstances.

dittybopper: RanDomino: Risking your life for your boss's profit = hero

At some point, yes, because without profit, there is no job.

Also, *NOT* resisting this sort of stuff just encourages more of it.  I'd rather economically motivated crimes shift to non-confrontational things like theft and burglary instead of robbery.  Less chance of someone getting hurt.  How do you do that?  You make the potential cost to the robber higher, and the potential payoff lower.


These days, robbers even network and share info on exactly which employees will hand over money without a fight, what their work schedules and register assignments are, and even rate them on how quickly they handed over the money (because the faster the robber gets the cash, the more likely they'll be gone before the cops arrive). Robbers go to these preferred victims again and again, until management assumes they're actually accomplices of the gangs (which they practically are by that point), and not only fire them, but often have them arrested instead of the robbers.

/all for the unintended consequences of regulations imposed with the very best of intentions

I know, I've always felt that was asinine. If presented with an opportunity, I'd always give a shot at farking up the robber.

Yeah, don't make it an obligation, because there will always be circumstances where just handing over the cash will be the best course, but don't actively punish your employees when they resist.

dittybopper: "It's *PRECISELY* that sort of attitude that encourages robbery, and in fact that makes robbing places like that somewhat lucrative."

Lucrative? Robbery has crap return and high risk.  Everyone's got time-lock safes now.  You'd be *incredibly* lucky to pull even $100 out of a Dunkin register during a night shift.  And the penalties for getting busted robbing a joint (almost certainly with a weapon or threat of a weapon) are incredibly higher than getting busted for a burglary.  Return has gone way down, risks way up and none of that has much budged robbery rates.  So it really doesn't look like a vanilla economically-motivated crime.  It behaves much more like a desperation-based crime -- people who need *cash*, *right now*. In which case even a higher rate of resistance would probably not make a difference.

The Internet has made me a skeptic I guess, but there appears to be no evidence other than this hero's glory story.

Dewey: And then the monster started growling at me, so I threw rocks at him, and I killed him, and then he started flying around on rocket boost, and I got to ride inside his head, and now the monster's my friend, and we wen - and we went to get Slurpees.

Reese: You did not. You just lied.

Hal: Reese, if that's what Dewey says happened there's no reason to argue about it.

Reese: No one believes I beat the last level in Mortal Kombat.

Hal: Because that's just ridiculous. No one beats Sub-Zero.

Exactly. People always seem to forget/ignore this point. "Once you have paid him the Dane-geld You never get rid of the Dane".


So there really ARE people out there who still read Kipling!

First thing I thought of as well.

Excellent movie, quite thought-provoking when you realize EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER (except the young daughter) uses violence or a threat-of-violence in the movie.

Not trolling, I actually suspect this.  Also, the accent is bad, but mostly because I only thought of it part-way through, and, you know, don't care.

Too bad she wasn't armed with a handgun.

"Popping a cap" right betwixt his jaundiced meth-head eyeballs seems like the better outcome to a situation like this, but I gotta applaud her for giving him a 180 degree shampoo and rinse.

Yeah...  too bad she'll probably get the sack for defending herself.  At least she didn't post a copy of his receipt somewhere here on the interwebs.
