Crankasaurus Rex Sighting!

So I'm a Crankasaurus Rex in the mornings, I’ll admit it. I have an early morning wake-up call for work Mondays to Fridays, which makes for one very grumpy person at the hospital. The only exception is on Thursdays, my designated “Sleep-In Day”. Yes, my boss is cool enough to acknowledge that I am not a morning person and that I need one day out of the week to catch up on sleep. On top of that, Thursday also happens to be Donut Day.
Almost every Thursday this past year, it has been my routine to swing by the Dunkin' Donuts on Columbia Pike and grab two dozen donuts for the staff and I. I go in, hand the folks over at DD my pink Post-It with a list of my requests, and wait with eager anticipation. The combo of a good night’s sleep, an aromatic hazelnut coffee and a Bavarian Crème donut’s sugary goodness seems to get me out of my sleepy, grouchy mood instantly! And the fact that my boy Yussif manages to get my order to me in less than five minutes is extraordinary, especially during morning peak hours! Step back people, I got places to be and people to see, and I need my donuts now!

So if you have a Crankasaurus Rex at your work, or if you yourself are one, perhaps a chat with Human Resources about designating a Sleep-In Day would be beneficial. After all, nobody likes a grouch. But if that’s a no-go, consider a little trip to Dunkin’ Donuts on Columbia Pike. Yussif and his crew will get you out of your bad mood in a snap!
