@chelma & gothmo: You should go round my local. You not only get a doughnut, you get argued with if you don't take it. Every single time. I ended up not going in any more, because I just couldn`t bear having the exact same conversation with a guy that seemed to have an Aspergers-like obsession with explaining to me that the doughnut "was free" every single time (as if I hadn`t understood that fairly simple concept the 300 others times he`d explained exactly the same thing). He was a bit of a Rainman-esque character – he could remember everyone`s sandwich fillings perfectly and would ask you if that`s what you wanted as soon as you entered the shop, but he just couldn`t seem to stop himself repeating exactly the same conversation about how the doughnut "was free!" every single time I was in, or appreciate the concept that my idea of a good lunch wasn`t to get as many calories for the lowest cost, no matter how many times I politely explained it to him.
