Dunkin Donuts Complaint - Kicked Out For Leaving Storefront To Have A Cigarette
FLUSHING, NEW YORK -- I am just posting this since this week me and my friends went to our local Dunkin Donuts for our ritual coffee and talking about how we're doing and we were kicked out for having left the premise to have a coffee inside our car. The weather was cold so we had our coffee and cigarette inside our vehicle. I know there was a 15 min parking for this Dunkin Donuts but we left as soon as we ordered. The owner/manager kicked us out for being there too long. We were planning to go back inside and order some donuts and more coffee.
We complained that we were going to go back inside to have our donuts and to continue talking. There were people inside that were parked for longer than us still inside but the manager seemed to have singled us out because we were there too long. We than told him we would buy more coffee and sit inside. The owner/manager than threatened to have our car towed.
We were the only Asians there and I know that there were people inside who were parked and there much longer than we were (all the cars that were there before us were still there and still was after we left). We than asked him to also kick out other customers since they were past the 15 min limitations. The owner/manager than threatened again to tow our car and told us to leave.
I do not like this horrendous treatment. The previous manager never had any problems and we usually moved our cars for other customers if we were past the limitations.
I could find another place to file this complaint but would to let people know our horrendous treatment. I do not know if there was racism involved but it was odd that we as young Asians were singled out. Also the manager made no attempt to force any other customer out.
