On a briefly serious note, trust this forum. They will guide you through the UKVI mess. I’m headed towards ILR, and I couldn’t have done it without their expert guidance and support.

I never realised how popular Dunkin Donuts is!  I guess it's an east coast thing, mainly?
We had one in the So Cal town where I grew up, but I never went there because there was also a Winchell's and a Donut Delite.  I think the Dunkin Donuts eventually closed and became a Carls Jr, so it seems no one else in town went there either!

This one has been going around my FB meme pages recently haha

https://ibb.co/Kj3wtPL
I've seen this one haha it's so new England it hurts. My town has 1 dunks at the end of main street then another about 1-2 miles down main street then another inside the stop and shop less than a mile down the road. That's not also including another 1 close to the high school in my town and one in my town off the exit for the highway (and who knows, i'm probably forgetting another one!) And that is only a small suburb outside boston with more coffee shops than just the 5 dunks too lol

It's veeeeerrryyy much a new england thing. I thought they had only even put one in CA within the last 5 years or so! But maybe they had one, pulled it, and then put it back? I know they had them in Florida near disney and i'm guessing that's because of tourists LOL but i think we're so used to them in New England that we instinctively look for the nearest one when travelling to other states haha (at least that's how i remember it being when i was growing up)

I'm convinced they put something addictive in their coffee!

The funny thing was, when I lived in Florida, there was one right around the corner from me, but it wasn't very good coffee. Occasionally ,it was S'bucks, but
usually preferred to get Cuban coffee (rocket fuel) from all the independent shops that were around. 

If I go to Massachusetts now though, and want to get a coffee, it's usually one from Dippin Donuts. Yum!

I miss going to a diner and getting bottomless cups of coffee!

Unpopular opinion - i don't even think it's that good and i don't know why i was absolutely addicted to it for so much of my life (i imagine it was because i'd just dump so much sugar into my already syrup'd coffee - french vanilla baby!) One day i got it and it just tasted burnt and awful and i stopped going to dunks LOL

Also. Is it just where i was from or is part of the dunkies experience that you NEVER get the coffee right even when you've had to explain it 5 times? Like "one large french vanilla iced coffee, please?" "That'll be one small green tea with milk" what?! No! "So one coffee coolata, you got it!"

Yeah, this would have been 35-40 years ago!  :o

They're good with 'I will have a Medium Regular'  ;D

Regular meaning coffee with cream and sugar, for anyone who isn't from New England!

I was addicted to Tim Horton's, but then they changed suppliers and McDonald's bought up their old one and it went to crap while McD's coffee improved drastically. Their muffins and timbits were always good too (back when I could eat them). Dunkin Donuts was a childhood favourite in WNY. I'm glad to live next to a Starbucks now though, it's a taste of home when I'm able to stop over. Haven't set foot in a grocery store since March though, so it'll be a bit longer before I can indulge.
