Also, it is meant to be a work of humor.

"I'm funny because I say 'fark' and 'shiat' a whole bunch.  Get it?"

The more I read that the more I think I see why the kid made the burrito the way he did.

Seriously - lighten the heck up - it's just a burrito not a weapon of mass destruction

Dude. It's a humorous blog post. Not a hard-hitting exposé on the dangers of poorly made burritos. Did you think Sam Kinison was really that worked up about everything? It's comedy. You may or may not find humor in it, but this clearly isn't a serious post.


FTA: "Also, it is meant to be a work of humor. If you take from this that a human being really got as angry about a burrito as the post suggests, please never introduce me to the human beings you know."

Well, that's what I get for not reading all the way through to see it's a joke.

Save face by attacking the author anyway for it not being funny.

jayfurr: As angry pointless online rants go, this one is pretty good.


Pretty good to a third grader. People like him need to learn how to feed themselves instead of relying on min wage folks to do it for them. You pay min wage you get minimum work plain and simple (this concept is beyond most folks). Got a problem with that feed yourself and you have no complaints.

I think everyone involved (Fark included) is overthinking it.

mantis!: I thought the main point of the post was to advertise his card game-thingy linked at the bottom of the article?  Something about silly arguments about crazy fights.  Guess not if no one else has mentioned it by now.

I was glad to see it was a made up rant, because both the worker and complaint seemed to dumb to be real.

/Came in hoping people would be talking about the card game or at least complaining that this link was just an ad for the game.


I saw that too.  Seems like that'd be a pretty fun "we just closed the bar and bought $50 worth of Taco Bell to gorge on while we watch the entire first season of Chappelle's Show" thing to do until sun-up.

/just hope the burrito is built right

I was talking about the same issue with my wife today right after we got our car washed.  They put the floor mats in the wrong way.  Poor little shiats will never get anywhere in life with that attitude.
 
2013-09-09 08:53:56 PM  
He probably made the burrito like that on purpose. When I was in HS, I had friends who worked in fast food and intentionally would fark with people (nothing rude just silly/stupid stuff). If I ever came through the drive-thru and they were working and ordered something like no tomato, my cheeseburger would have 5 slices of tomato.
 
2013-09-09 09:03:33 PM  
Apparently since bad things happen in other parts of the world we should let our standards slide.

Theres always somewhere in the world thats a shiatty hellhole -- you know  whats a first world problem? Complaining that people shouldn't complain about small things because bad shiat is going down on the other side of the globe.

Quantum Apostrophe: If these guys made it that way:

They'd charge you 16$ for it and people would gape in wonder.


I'm gaping at wonder at it. I'm thoroughly impressed by this burrito roller's creativity and skill at keeping those ingredients separate like that. Must have been some for of molecular gastronomy. Author obviously has no appreciation for the higher culinary arts.

And this is why I buy food at grocery stores and cook it myself. Fast food is usually an experiment in misery, and sit-down restaurants vary so wildly that you really have to know you can trust them before taking a chance.

I read it. Would've found it more amusing had it not described my local burrito place.
 
2013-09-09 09:15:06 PM  
Silly me: I thought that was the way they were supposed to be. I'll eat the next one I order from side to side.

get over it, dude.  it was a horrible burrito.  mix it up with a fork and enjoy.


Know how I know you didn't read to the end? 'Cause if you had, you would have seen this:

"If you take from this that a human being really got as angry about a burrito as the post suggests, please never introduce me to the human beings you know. "

Don't blame the burrito jockey cause you're too lazy to shake it up.
 
2013-09-09 09:30:37 PM  
I love burritos, they are filling, tasty and one of the healthiest fast food options out there.

This worker committed a food related atrocity. Of course you layer them lengthwise, it's completely obvious! Let me put it this way, would you eat a pizza that was dough and cheese on one strip, next to a strip of tomato sauce and dough only and next to a strip of pepperoni and dough only? OF COURSE NOT, YOU LAY THEM ON TOP OF EACH OTHER! ITS THE SAME THING WITH A BURRITO!

I consider myself to be a good customer. I'm usually polite and patient but that would be a life time restaurant blacklist for me.

LoneVVolf: Maddox has a new page?


It's funny- I used to read that "blog" about a decade ago when I was a kid and just thought it was the most hilarious thing in the world. I'd forgotten about it for years until you just mentioned it and went back to read it. Holy shiat it was so bad. And at first I thought it was just that his new stuff had lost its punch but I re-read the old stuff and realized it just isn't funny.
 
2013-09-09 09:41:40 PM  
Funny, I have NEVER had a burrito like this. I call bullshiat.

2013-09-09 09:45:34 PM  

big pig peaches: Ishidan: LoneWolf343: If you pay someone $7.25 an hour, expect a $7.25/hr job.

Minus taxes, commute costs, and other assorted bullshiat...more like five an hour, no benefits.

Paying the incompetent more isn't suddenly going to make them competent.


But paying a position more may attract more competent applicants, allowing one to be selective about whom they hire.

Bet that was hard to figure out.

BS is BS. TB's steak burrito is actually half way decent for a fast food joint.

Volcano burrito or nothing!

Also I just learned they will grill any burrito if you ask.  Really kicks them all up a notch.

That's usually the best bet, but not always the most feasible. Out of all the times I've ever had fast food in my life, I've had very few unpleasant experiences/problems.

gadian: Minimum wage is for workers to show up and do the minimum amount of work.  Just enough to qualify to get paid.  In return, the employer pays that worker the minimum they are legally allowed to pay.That is the social contract of these things.

If you expect more than the minimum from a minimum wage worker, you are the problem, not the minimum wage worker.  If you want that minimum wage worker to give you 110%! or some crap your dad told you about over and over when you were little, you need to spend time pondering the nature of minimum wage work.  Mostly being that high levels of motivation, pride, and dedication are, at best, at odds with the very idea of minimum wage work.  At worst, I suppose that it is some cruelty to expect anyone to provide more than the minimum effort for a minimum wage.


Ironically, it's rich people who whine about entitled people who are the most entitled.
 
2013-09-09 09:57:57 PM  
I find that if there is some kind of food I cannot get the way I like it, I make it myself.  For example cheese omelets, few cooks make them without burning one side.
The ones who make them most of the time only cook one side leaving this gooey raw funk in the middle.  So I make them myself and avoid all the trouble with getting upset with the cook for not knowing how to cook.

xalres: Actually, I'd be impressed if someone were able to make a burrito layered like that without the ingredients being swirled together in the process. It made me think of an interesting idea, make a vertically layered burrito but with different burritos. So you could get, say, an asada/chile verde/pastor burrito. They'd need to find a way to separate them, some kind of edible semi-permeable membrane to keep the flavor sections separated. Someone with more time and less of a procrastinative* streak needs to make this happen.

*is that a word


Edible semi- permeable membrane? Soooo... a tortilla. That would work great! Hey, everybody! I'm gonna be rich! I'm going to make burritos that use TORTILLAS to hold everything together!

oh, wait...

NorCalLos:
I know! They could use a tortilla!

and that's what I get for not reading the rest of the thread first...
 
2013-09-09 10:30:31 PM  
Dude, if you don't understand the concept of separation of quality or the principle of talent pooling by diffuse evaporation then just stick to the frozen section.  The menu spans the whole range and if you don't know what you are asking for or how to get what you want then you probably don't belong on this side of the drive thru window.
 
2013-09-09 10:34:24 PM  
Dear jackass who wrote the most crybaby bs ive ever read. Stop your crying and make your own damned burrito you lazy fark. Nobody cares. Dude probably rubbed his nuts on your burrito. You probably liked that part though didnt ya. Only lazy broke people eat fast food ok. shiat is junk and always will be but ohhhh when u see that shiny burrito on tv you dont care and you want it baaaaaaaad! Cuz shiat it was 99 cents!
 
2013-09-09 10:44:30 PM  
The funniest part is that a tortilla is circular.  By unwrapping it and rolling it from just 90º different would smear the ingredients the way a burrito is supposed to be.
 
2013-09-09 10:45:02 PM  
This is the funniest thing I have read all week...

Unless we convert to a Star Trek moneyless style of living, someone will always have a job that makes the "minimum wage."

seems like a noble effort and the burrito just got rolled 90 degrees off what it should have been, otherwise it would have turned out fine.  also, burritos, only good when they're made by you or some guy in a truck.
 
2013-09-09 11:09:32 PM  

ski9600: drjekel_mrhyde: Okay I know one of you farkers ate a tongue or brain burrito. How does each one taste?

Lengue tacos.  Very good.  Beefy, no funk.


I must disagree. Had the tongue taco. Very tough and an unpleasant taste. Would not eat again.

NutWrench: I never thought it would be possible to screw up a burrito like that.


I find the worst is to go get a chicken burrito, and find out some assmuncher scooped up a bunch if hard assed rice for a surprise for you.   Nothing like having a hard time determining if it is a chicken bone or a piece of hard rice.
