Limit One Coupon Per Customer Per Visit [More:]What does this mean exactly? Say I have a page of coupons for Dunkin Donuts. One is for two donuts for 99cent. One is for a free donut with purchase of coffee, another is a 99cent muffin. Can I use all of these on the same visit?
I think I can use the different coupons but cannot have multiples of the same coupon. This coupon stuff confuses me.

Take all the coupons and cut them up into confetti-sized pieces. Go to Dunkin Donuts, order whatever you want, and when they ask you to pay, throw the confetti up in the air while you sing La Marseillaise. This always works for me.

No, I think it means you can use the free donut coupon OR the 99 muffin, but not at the same time.

It doesn't matter, today at least. I was on my way and my kids were hitting each other in the car and I turned it around. Now we are going to drink Folgers and have toast. That was so hard. I really wanted a coffee but their behavior (especially eldest that torments and instigates) is atrocious.

flapjax, I should have thrown the kids out of the car, and sung La Marseillaise at the top of my lungs on the way to Dunkin Donuts.

Can you go out on your own this AM and get a nice coffee and snack?

(Or perhaps better yet, go and get takeout coffee and a big, colorful donut, and eat it slowly in front of them?)

Ha, Lori, that's exactly what you should have done. Although I like Miko's idea too.

That would be lovely, Miko. Unfortunately husband is working and if I leave the house, they must come with.

They gave me some story that big brother was trying to take book from little brother and little brother stuck his hand out to defend himself and big brother twisted it on "accident" and then little brother hit his head and cried.

Whatever. Big brother knows to keep hands to himself. I told them that their behavior was unacceptable. They then blamed me and said that I didn't teach them how to behave. I laughed and told them they didn't have a clue, kid.

Thanks, gaspode. I was so looking forward to a large coffee. I think that was the first time I turned the car around. They are, for the most part, well behaved kids. I don't want to paint a picture that they are little barbarians.

My grandmother and her husband cut short a roadtrip because my mother and uncle were fighting.

My dad took my uncle's blanket and used it as a flag out the car window somewhere in the desert...when suddenly it blew away. My grandfather told my cousin he didn't know how they managed to make it to DC after that. This trip.couldn't be cancelled because they were visiting Gramma's family.

If you had your kids, each one is a customer. If the cashier balks, just have each kid pay individually.

What Stewriffic said re: coupon - one coupon only. The others would have to wait for another day.

And I would have continued on and gotten what I want. The kids would have to whatever I fixed at home. Because I'm mean like that. :D

Ha, deborah. That's what my husband said I should have done.

I laughed out loud at this part:

They then blamed me and said that I didn't teach them how to behave.

That's pretty clever! I know they're just being knuckleheads but I do admire their creativity.

Lori, I really enjoy these posts about your family. You're great at relating these slice-of-life moments. It would be so fun to have you and your family as neighbors. Keep the stories coming!

Thanks, Kangaroo! I would love to have you as a neighbor. They do say some of the funniest things. I only encourage them because I can't help but to laugh.

If I were there I'd totally watch your spawn.

It would be easy, BTGoG. You would only have to make sure they didn't OD on Nazi Zombies. ;-)
