Delmar Man Boycotts Dunkin Donuts Until His Favorite Worker Returns
Published April 9th, 2017
ALBANY — A Delmar man refused Monday to eat his typical breakfast sandwich at Dunkin' Donuts, adding he has no plans to return to the store until the woman who usually prepares his meal is back on the job.
Hanford Moxie, 45, an accountant and married dad of two teenagers, went hungry for nearly four hours after learning employee Mindy Taxiturtle was unavailable to make his usual bacon, egg and cheese meal which she prepares for him five days a week.
"Hey, what’s the big idea?” Moxie reportedly asked store manager Noodle Rockford at the Dunkin’ Donuts on upper New Scotland Avenue. “Where’s the woman that usually makes this for me? She is fabulous.”
When told by Rockford that Taxiturtle had the day off and that Dolores would be making his sandwich, Moxie reportedly sighed, and then walked out the door talking to himself, sources said.
Approached by the Smudge, Moxie strongly denied a rumor that he drove to a nearby McDonald’s and ate an Egg McMuffin.
“Nonsense,” Moxie said dismissively.
Meanwhile, a source at Dunkin Donuts said Taxiturtle could be out for several days.
Customers at the store Tuesday were baffled by Moxie’s refusal to be served by other employees.
“Why not give Delores a try? Maybe she would do just as good a job as Mindy?” asked Matthew Wiggle, 34, of Troy.
“I agree,” said Sandra Spots, 47, of Delmar. “A sandwich is a sandwich, no?”
Told of the comments, Moxie rolled his eyes
“If Sandy Spots is so happy with the way that fill-in worker makes breakfast sandwiches, good for her,” Moxie said. “But I have standards.”
