Burrito weirdness

The burrito-maker at my local taco shop laughs at me when I place my order. It is not a weird order...chicken burrito, black beans, rice, hot sauce and guacamole. I get it maybe twice a week. He always shakes his head and chuckles at me, like I'm ordering alligator. It's beginning to bug me, so I said something to him today -- very genially -- you always laugh when I order!! I didn't think I had weird taste! or some such. He immediately walked off and got the manager, who asked if I was dissatisfied with my burrito and if there was an "issue." WTF?

He's hitting on you, OP!

Wants to shove his jalapeño burrito up your ladyboy taco chute PRONTO!

Ask him to make it with turkey meatballs next time.

by Anonymousreply 209/20/2012

And did you cower away, OP or answer the manager?

Does the burrito maker speak English?

Did you cry?

by Anonymousreply 309/20/2012

He's not laughing at what you're ordering, OP. He's laughing at you.

Maybe because Hesperus need you telling him what goes in the burrito every time. Maybe just saying "chicken burrito" would suffice.

Hesperus = he doesn't

Spell check is so strange sometimes. Glad I could liven up this thread though.

I kind of think [R4] is right...He's laughing at you.

He probably puts boogers in your food when you look away because you are a puto.

by Anonymousreply 909/20/2012

I assume that was an autocorrect fail for "He doesn't".

What did you say to the manager? Did you tell the manager that the employee laughs at you and your order?

by Anonymousreply 1109/20/2012

If you go there twice a week, and always order the same thing - I'd laugh too because I'd be wondering whether TODAY was the day you were going to get crazy and change up your order. And apparently you never do, so at some point it just becomes sort of amusing.

Try actually changing your order and see if that fucks with his smirky behavior. Then I'm sure you'll feel better.

Stop going. Problem solved.

R11, just let it go, hon. You're worst than the "Lost respect for a friend today" OP on the other thread.

The chicken burrito ALWAYS comes with black beans, rice, hot sauce and guac.

Mellow out. Don't be so f^ucking insecure.

I've just laughed for a solid minute at "Hesperus." Where, oh, where do they find the algorithms?

He's laughing at your lisp. Silly maricon!!

Now I know who Hesperus is.

by Anonymousreply 2209/20/2012

He's laughing at you. Solution: go somewhere else. I have had this problem with ethnic establishements before. They aren't all like that, believe me. Go somewhere else, where your patronage will be appreciated.

What did you say to the manager? Did you let him know what happens and that you find it strange? I hope so. Any manager worth his or her salt will care and address the issue. My guess is the employee is a relative.If so, he probably won't be fired, but at least the ones in charge know that when customers are treated like that the company will indeed lose business.Eventually it will matter and things will change.

And I agree with the previous poster,he probably is doing something nasty to the food.

YELP is your friend OP. Do it.

Laugh right back at HIM when he does it to you! Why? He's the one who's SERVING you!

There's five burrito places on every block, OP. If it bothers you, go next door.

It's your hair, OP.

And your makeup.

by Anonymousreply 2709/20/2012

They don't exactly administer a Myers-Briggs test at the burrito place, Dear. That's the answer.

by Anonymousreply 2809/21/2012

I can't imagine why, but this reminds me of the time I worked in a psych hospital. At snack time, a patient named Brian always asked for "Vitamin D milk", just like that, every time. Eventually I couldn't stifle a laugh and was afraid I'd offended him, but he was so into his Vitamin D milk he never heard me.

by Anonymousreply 2909/21/2012

OP, I know exactly what you're going through!

by Anonymousreply 3009/21/2012

OP, try ordering it without the rice and see what happens. Rice in burritos is an American phenomenon, not Mexican. The black beans (as opposed to that American standard, refried) is already a good touch.

[quote]Most hIspanics are trash and very homophobic.

Should we say most Americans are very trash and bigoted, R21? Based on your post, that would be as logical a conclusion as your ignorant stereotyping.

Why are you going out for burritos? Just have the girl make them before she finishes the laundry.

Do you lisp, or come off a bit femmie? That might be it.

R35, I think I love you.

by Anonymousreply 4009/22/2012

He's laughing because you want shredded Red Dragon cheese, OP.

by Anonymousreply 4109/22/2012

Rest assured that you have just added an new ingredient to your order.

by Anonymousreply 4209/22/2012

Thanks r40. I learned The Wreck of the Hesperus in 5th grade and never saw that name again for several decades until this thread.

by Anonymousreply 4309/22/2012

Yeah, rice in your burro is not a thing that's usually done.

I guess some places add it on as a filler, but some places add refried beans as a filler.

by Anonymousreply 4409/22/2012

R44, rice is not at an uncommon ingredient in a burrito.

by Anonymousreply 4509/22/2012

It may be a very common thing a burrito, R45, but not in a burro, as R44 has correctly stated.

by Anonymousreply 4609/22/2012

He's laughing at you because it's not an authentic Mexican food. It's something you would order at Chipotle. Either that or he's insane.

by Anonymousreply 4709/22/2012

Have you been back to the restaurant to see your giggling burritista again OP?
