Man says sorry for scaring a woman in the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru, and more.
Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. What we learned this week: there are a few guys out there looking for pot smoking "buddies" to hang out with, people still don't know the difference between "you're" and "your," and there are lots of curb alerts. A Dunkin Debaucle (we didn't say drunken, we said Dunkin) A man issued a heartfelt apology on Craigslist, saying he is sorry he perhaps made a woman pee her pants in the Dunkin Donuts Drive-Thru in Marlborough recently. Apparently, the man was enraged when he saw the woman chuck an old iced coffee cup out the window. In anger, he picked up the cup, knocked on the window, asked if she had dropped something, and …

Residents in Brookline supported a move to ban the use of all foam food and beverage containers, a move that was approved at Special Town Meeting.
One group of residents in the Bay State has taken a stand against the use of plastic foam food and beverage containers at local restaurants. A Special Town Meeting in Brookline earlier this week voted to ban the use of polystyrene (plastic foam) food and beverage containers for take-out or to-go at food establishments in town. The ban will go into effect on Dec. 1, 2013. The move came after Town Meeting member Nancy Heller proposed the article due to the health risks involved in the use of the cups. As a result, the move was approved by a vote of 169-27. But not everyone was in favor of the move. Canton-based Dunkin Donuts spoke against the measure on Tuesday; spokesperson Christine Riley said that, despite looking, the company has not …
