Hardly the worst example of "Send me stuff I don't deserve!" I've seen, but still absolutely ridiculous.
I'm all for supporting the consumer over the big guy, but what really happened here was- you ASSUMED they would be open late because other KK branches are open late.
The entire paragraph about how it would be smart for them to stay open later is completely irrelevant. They set their hours. You didn't check.
And your math "logic" is wrong, too. You asked for gas money for two trips. Even if they did compensate you, and I'm sure they laughed at you while they sent you coupons, why should they pay gas for two trips? Only one trip was fruitless. Unless you show up without knowing if they would be open again. Oh, and if you live 10.6 miles out of town, shouldn't you have used the highway mileage?
You made an assumption. You lost. Totally your fault. And I think you know it. Nice job getting free donuts, though.
