(Newser) – A Philadelphia woman is suing Dunkin' Donuts, saying a worker mistakenly put sugar in her coffee that ultimately caused her to go into diabetic shock. Danielle Jordan's lawsuit claims she asked for artificial sweetener to be added to her coffee during a June 2009 visit. After she downed the drink (that's right, downed), Jordan says she became dizzy, light-headed, and ended up making an emergency trip to the hospital.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages. One legal liaison for the company told the Philadelphia Daily News she couldn't comment on the case, but then continued with this fairly hilarious explanation: "We don't provide a customer with anything they don't request. If they request a medium coffee, they will get a medium coffee. If you fail to request a sugar substitute, we can't read your mind. We sell doughnuts, not crystal balls." (And speaking of totally crazy lawsuits...)
