You've Got to Fight For Your Right...

A Barberton, Ohio man went to court to fight for his right to order a bean burrito from Taco Bell.

OKay, he didn't choose to go to court. The court ordered him to come hither because he displayed some public intoxication outside the Taco Bell drive through.

Here's the thing: the dining room was closed and he didn't have a car so he thought he'd walk through the drive through. He was unrulely and disruptive after Taco Bell denied him his order because he wasn't in a car.

I have some opinions on the matter:

1. shouldn't society reward not driving? not serving someone because he isn't in a car?!?!?!?!
2. especially, shouldn't society reward not driving DRUNK?
3. in the best Taco Bell in the country--in Santa Barbara--they have a walk-up window. why don't other TBs follow suit?
4. doesn't Taco Bell want to sell as many bean burritoes as possible after the E-Coli business?

While I defend this man's right to walk through the drive through, I must comment on his "revenge" on Taco Bell. Telling other customers, lucky enough to have cars, that the restaurant was closed, sending them away heartbroken is cruel. But I don't think he learned his lesson in the end. Next time he is going to drive drunk through the drive through and Taco Bell will gladly serve him. I guess walkers must unite on a petition. I can't head up that protest, though. Most Taco Bells in D.C. don't have drive thru's but do have a host of other problems that need fixing (later hours, cleaner restaurants, sauce packet free-for-all).

that pisses me off. one time at another fast food establishment (jack in the box) i rode my bicycle through the drive thru (it was 1am so dining room was closed) and they made an exception for me. can you belive that? just b/c i didnt have a vehicle i could not get food.

poo on the fast food industry for that.
