Yup.

We could be bombing Syria tomorrow, and the worst thing in the universe is this guy's burrito builder.  It's like he didn't think for two seconds that while his burrito was made incorrectly, he could stop, unroll it, and smear the ingredients into the correct layout, either with a utensil or his goddamn finger.


Like some uncivilized barbarian? (As opposed to the civilized barbarians.) His ancestors did not crawl from the primordial ooze, evolve into symmetrical land-dwelling bipeds capable of agrarian society and the domestication of cattle so that he would be served a goddamn Neapolitan Burrito!

Some mornings when I wake up, my MS sucks, and I can't stand because my legs just spazz wildly and I fall down. My apartment is not even remotely handicap accessible, and I can't afford ones that are, so that means I end up eating candy/whatever is within reach of my bedroom, crawling to the bathroom when I can't hold my crutches, and generally wasting a day in bed. To me, that seems like something worthy of getting mad about...

This guys inability to open the burrito, mix up the ingredients, then re-close it successfully, a task I've witnessed my 4 year old nephew perform, is not something he should be mad at other people about.

While the writer has a point, he is mistaken the burrito guy is working for him.   Burrito wrapper guy is working for Burrito Corp Limited.

Burrito Corp Limited probably wants Burrito Wrapper guy to make a single burrito in X time so X burritos in one day can be made.

In an attempt to be more efficient at his job, burrito wrapper guy learned that instead of moving eight things eight inches, he learned he can be more efficient by moving eight things about an inch at a time.

While that worked great for Henry Ford, it does not work so well for guy who has to eat said burrito.

I would say the burrito maker could be a genius in the wrong line of work.

You should add "All food service workers who are not master chefs at their own Michelin 4-star restaurants* should be ashamed of what they do for a living, and should consider themselves lucky that I only stiffed them on the tip, and not set them on fire while they sleep!"

Igor Jakovsky: This why I only get my tacos/burrotos from this little kotchen at the back of a Mexican grocery. The tortillas are made fresh onsite. The veggies are grown in a garden out back and the meat comes from beef or chicken that is farm raised and slaughtered daily on site. The things are assembled by little old Mexican ladies who don't speak English.. You have to order in Spanish or you're out of luck.

Id tell you where it is but its hard to find because it doesn't have a sign out front. You really have to hunt for it. Best Mexican food EVAR.


Also, once you find the place, a little chime plays. You get to keep the bottle the burrito comes in, to put Poes, or insects, or medicine, or whathhaveyou in.

Then why not just hand the customers the ingredients? Why bother to assemble it at all if you don't have to bother doing it right?

I laughed several time. The mental image of a person trying to bite down on a burrito lengthwise and the gut-shot burrito comment especially made me laugh. And while we're on the subject of poorly made Tex-mex: the hard taco is a failure of engineering. Soft tacos are great, but hard tacos are bullshiat. I have only one option when eating a hard taco; tilt my head to 90 degrees and hope for the best. fark all the noise, I don't eat like a nursing calf.

Arby's is EASILY the most egregious violator in the way their product looks in advertisements vs. reality.

Big Beef and Cheddar looks like it stands about 7" tall smothered in a cheesy waterfall...

The reality is one squirt of cheese off center and already soaked in to the bread while the rest of the sandwich is flat enough to slide under a closed door.

Yeah, I also saw the disclaimer. However, having been one to write rants like these (in private emails, mind, you) it's clear that his experience was real so he's writing from fact rather than just making stuff up. I thought it was pretty funny, mind you, but the disclaimer wants me to say tpo the guy hey, you can't have your farkin' burrito and eat it, too. You were angry. Just let it out, man!
