The Dos And Donuts Of Dunkin' Etiquette

A few things us Dunkin' workers want you to know.

If you've been someone who's had a job since you were 15 like me, there's a solid chance you've worked somewhere like McDonald's, Wendy's, Subway, or really any chain restaurant.

For the last 3 years, I have worked at Dunkin' Donuts. I will say I genuinely am never shocked by specific orders or complaints after multiple years of shuffling through jobs I could really only get when I was so young at the time. I am especially grateful for my job and I can easily say I genuinely enjoy it from time to time. Like any job really, it gets stressful from time to time.

Usually, however, this is due customers who are just unaware of Dunkin's standards. Here are a few things to educate yourself on the everyday dilemmas Dunkin' workers deal with:

1. We are not McDonald's or Starbucks

As off as it may seem, when you order a small coffee you simply say...small coffee. Although I am familiar with the tall, grande, and venti terms of Starbucks, they are not universal terms at Dunkin'. In terms of food, do not confuse McDonalds breakfast with Dunkin Breakfast...yes...this happens, and no we do not have Egg McMuffins.

2. If you don't clarify, we assume your coffee is hot, and we do not somehow know your size

Before rambling off your order, please say your size and drink preference. Ok yes, half decaf hazelnut with 8 sugars and skim...although this is straightforward, is it medium, or large? Is it hot or iced coffee? When this occurs for multiple drinks extra time is required which frustrates the customer ordering as well as the other customers in line.

3. "Regular" coffee is not a standard

Do not use the term "regular." Regular means multiple things according to the average customer. Regular coffee blend, regular meaning black coffee, or regular meaning with cream and sugar. The term is too arbitrary for us to guess, so please specify your preference.

4. We cannot physically put a half of a sugar or cream in a beverage

When it comes to sugar and dairy, Dunkin' utilizes calibrated machines. Every drink has a standard number of cream and sugar, and the smallest amount used is 1. If you have a specific preference in terms of cream and sugar, ask for it on the side. This saves us time and meets your expectations for what you want.

5. Latte's are not made "light and sweet"

In simple terms, espresso beverages like lattes, macchiatos, and cappuccinos all consist of different amounts of espresso and milk. They are not made with cream. You can use choices of regular, skim, or almond milk.

6. Please do not order while on the phone or give me a list

I get that everyone is busy, however, when ordering for a matter of two or so minutes, please do wait to finish a phone call. In addition, if you have a list of beverages, you don't have to silently sit there and hand me a list without regarding my existence. Believe it or not, the order goes quicker when you read off a list, not when you give us one.

7. Understand coupons

If you have a coupon for a $1.29 bagel with cream cheese, or a coffee or latte card, do not ask to substitute other products. Coupons work specifically after ringing up what the coupon says. It will not scan with something else. Especially, do not get frustrated when I cannot fulfill your request.

Overall, although Dunkin' is a straightforward job, a little respect and understanding goes a long way and makes both your life and mine easier.

Pez: A Delicious Yet Underrated Candy

Nothing comes close to the feeling of enjoying a scrumptious Pez brick.

If you ask someone what their favorite candy is, many people will likely give you a standard answer of skittles or m&m’s, or maybe starburst. But not me. I prefer a different candy, and it comes inside a small package and is shaped like a small rectangle. Some people may have forgotten that this candy even exists, but I never will. I am, of course, talking about Pez, the world’s most underrated candy.

Pez comes in the form of small, delicious blocks most appropriately enjoyed when first placed into a Pez dispenser. However, I believe that a dispenser is not completely necessary in order to enjoy the wonders of this delightful candy.

Some people I know have criticized Pez, saying it has no taste, or putting the pieces into the dispenser is too much work, or even that it tastes more like soap than candy. This breaks my heart every time that I hear it. Pez is delicious and needs to be treated as such.

There is simply nothing more satisfying than loading your favorite Pez dispenser with a fresh pack of the delicious candy bricks, then relaxing as you treat yourself to the deliciously chalky taste of the candy one piece at a time, proving that some things in life really are worth it.

Some may argue it seems pointless to have to place the candy into the dispenser just to take it back out again and eat it right away, but a true Pez lover understands the magical connection between Pez and Pez dispenser.

Sometimes it can be easy to get caught up in the things that don’t really matter in this life, like skittles or starbursts. That’s why once in a while you have to just stop, take a step back and appreciate the world around you, which can, of course, be accomplished by simply having some Pez.

Pez appears to have been forgotten by this generation, and it is a true travesty to think that future generations may not know the wonders of this magnificent candy. Pez also gets a bad rap sometimes because of the stigma associated with the weirdos who collect Pez dispensers.

If someone asks you if you want to see their Pez dispenser collection, you should probably say no because you may get murdered if you say yes, but just know that these people do not reflect what Pez is or what it stands for.

With some candies, only certain flavors are actually good, but this is not the case with Pez because all the flavors are delicious. This may be partially true because many of the flavors taste more or less the same, but this does not matter.

As a global society, we are facing many challenges right now that need to be addressed, but this issue needs to be pushed to the forefront immediately. We need to reintroduce Pez back into the cultural consciousness so that our children will know the wonders it beholds.

I’m talking Pez on display in every single candy store window, maybe a children’s TV show about Pez, Pez memorabilia like toys or video games or t-shirts. If we work together, we can bring Pez back and finally give it the treatment it deserves. The flame of Pez is still burning, and we must ensure that it never gets extinguished.
