He didn’t specify which Dunkin Donuts he worked at, however, in the comment section, he added that he wished he was ‘joking’ but wasn’t.

His actions prompted many users to take to the comment section and share their dismay – slamming him for taking the money since it was intended for someone else and calling it morally unethical.

However, others thought it was a good idea, pointing out that many workers don’t make a lot of money and live off of tips; the average Dunkin’ Donuts employee’s wage ranges from anywhere between $9 to $18 an hour.

‘Wait I never thought of this,’ said one user. Another added: ‘Ayeee that’s smart I’m doing that.’ 

‘Did this once and they came back [’cause] they were together,’ admitted another person.

‘My grandma found out they was doing this and got the whole place fired,’ commented one user. 

Another person said: ‘Yet another reason not to go to Dunkin.’ 

‘Karma that is all lol but honestly my husband has had people pay for his coffee because he was in uniform and that was their way of saying thank you for his service.’  

‘Regardless if you did or didn’t do this. Once Dunkin watches this you’re probably going to be looking for a job,’ read a different comment.
