Josh Brown, Krispy Kream Driver, donuts, glazed

Art Swedesford, district manager for Krispy Kream doughnuts was furious. His morning had begun with a yet another complaint from one of his delivery drivers regarding a confrontation with Josh Brown.

“We deliver a bakers dozen of glazed doughnuts to this man every morning. I can’t tell you how many times this guy has berated one of our drivers.  It is simply frustrating and my drivers are fed up.”

It seems Mr. Brown insists doughnuts be delivered to him when the green “fresh doughnuts” light is on.  The green fresh doughnut light indicates the doughnuts are ready to be pulled out of the oven.

“But it doesn’t work that way” Swedesford explained. “The light comes on every morning at 7:45 am and is out by 8:15 am. We make 3,000 doughnuts in that 30 minute window. On a good day, it takes 25 minutes to get to his house.  If Josh Brown wants fresh doughnuts he can come to our store in the morning like a normal customer.”

Swedesford continued, “When the doughnuts are out of the oven, my drivers leave as soon as they can. But if my drivers don’t get to Brown’s house by 8:15 am the guys throws a complete fit. Yesterday he freaked out on a driver that was 2 minutes late. And the worst part is, he always takes the doughnuts but refuses to pay if they are late.”

This isn’t the first time Mr. Brown has had a run-in with a delivery driver. While studying cosmetology at a school in Maryland, Mr. Brown was cited for harassing a Domino’s driver for being late to deliver eleven pepperoni pizzas.

“Mr. Brown is being cited for harassment,” the local police division stated.  “We have gotten more than a handful of complaints about Mr. Brown harassing local food delivery services.  These people are providing a valuable service during these unprecedented times.”
