    Thank you, thank you. The first is always the worst. Woe is me but I will prevail.

    Despite having activated the confirmation for donut spends, I just managed to waste two of them on tomacco with five minute left on the clock. No idea how that happened. :cry:
    oh man. That's bad :evil: I have heard of other members who say that with some updates that it unchecks the confirmation box.

    So to be save I would check ur settings after every updates.....anyoing I know

    long time ago when i first had the pop ups to "collect taxes from houses" i thought the only way to bypass this was to spend donuts.
    i probably wasted 10 donuts like this.
    and one night during the Halloween event i was drunk and decided to buy Halloween mystery boxes (don't remember what they were called). I was drunk so i thought i was spending candy to buy these but i was spending donuts.

    That is one of the funniest donut wasting stories I've read.

    When I had originally started playing the game I thought you had to add Facebook friends as I had no idea this site existed or what Origin was. I ended up using donuts to complete the "Add Friends" task, twice actually.

    Yea man i was like "wow this is a good deal. you spend 2 candy and get 10 back" then i later realized a bunch of my donuts were gone and decided not to play drunk anymore lol

    it really sucks too because homer just ate all the extra candy we had and we didn't get anything for it

    This is pretty hilarious, though probably not for you. You don't even have the comfort of knowing that the stupid donut spending is all the fault of EA and the game and not at all your own :P.

    1st yes, this has happened to me a few time sadly.

    I always thought a good solution would be if EA changed it from a confirm to spend to a CLICK and Hold to spend.

    Example: To purchase a premium item you need to click the Purchase Button and Hold for 5-7 seconds.

    But, as I am sure EA enjoys those mistake purchases I doubt they will ever change it.

    I think a warning should be added, that under no circumstances that drinking & playing are permitted. :XD:
    That is the funniest donut spend I've heard. I too use to spend donuts on brown houses when tapping. That was b4 they added the confirmation box. Now I check with every update

    No, the dog is 75 times worse. Plus sparing yourself 6 seconds is better than nothing... which is exactly what the dog is. :lol:
