[rspec-users] Not seeing the failure

All,

I'm missing something simple, I think. I am writing a spec to say that my
CouponController should create a new coupon from the form parameters, then
set the current user. Here's the spec:

describe CouponController, "When posting to save_coupon" do

  before(:each) do
    @expectedName = "pepper's"
    @expectedAmount = 5

    coupon = mock_model Coupon
    current_user = mock_model User
    controller.stub!(:current_user).and_return(current_user)
    Coupon.should_receive
(:new).with({"name"=>@expectedName,"amount"=>@expectedAmount}).and_return(coupon)
    coupon.should_receive(:user).with(current_user)
    coupon.should_receive(:save)
  end

  it "should tell the Coupon model to create a new coupon with the given
parameters and save" do
    post
'save_coupon',{:coupon=>{:name=>@expectedName,:amount=>@expectedAmount}}
  end

Here's the controller method:

  def save_coupon
    coupon = Coupon.new(params[:coupon])
    coupon.user = current_user
    coupon.save
    redirect_to_index "Coupon Added!"
  end

And, I get the following failure:

Mock 'Coupon_1008' received unexpected message :user= with (#<User:0x221a3e8
@name="User_1009">)

I'm sure that I'm missing something very simple, but I've been staring at it
for too long.

(also, if anyone has commented on my style, please feel free to mention it,
as I'm still adjusting my mind to rspec)

Oh, versions, I almost forgot:
rails 2.0.2
rspec(_on_rails) plugins just updated from current a couple days ago, not
totally sure how to get the versions of the plugins


Thanks.
-Corey
