FOXBORO (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Hurricane Irene left millions without electricity across New England. Many in Massachusetts are still in the dark. Tomorrow, Dunkin’ Donuts is doing its small part to give back to those who still have no power. The coffee chain, a New England favorite, sent out a tweet Wednesday afternoon to its followers saying. “Tell us if your town still has no power 4 a chance 2 receive a visit from a DD sampling truck 2mrw.” Later that night they tweeted, “Foxboro has spoken - @DunkinBoston will give free coffee tmrw at 16 Wash St. in Foxboro for residents w/out #DDpower 7-11am!” To those who have been without power for four days, this may be a small consolation. Nonetheless, it’s a free cup of coffee! Getting free stuff has a surprising power to boost spirits. If you’ll be in Foxboro tomorrow morning go grab yourself a cup between 7 and 11 a.m.!
Hey Dunks, thanks, it's nice that you're doing your part, but seriously? Coffee is the last thing I need when I've had no power for days on end. Like, America may run on Dunkin, but my tv, computer, lights, and video game systems don't. But that’s what I want, Coffee. I want to be wired when I’m bored out of my fucking mind. I drink coffee so I can get the most out of electricity, not to pass the time. Hell the only reason twitter exists is because of over caffeinated people trying to squeeze in a few more seconds of senseless communication and self promotion (guilty) into an already jam packed day.
