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.

And did you cower away, OP or answer the manager?
Does the burrito maker speak English?
Did you cry?

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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

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.

R21 is correct. Most hIspanics are trash and very homophobic. He thinks you are a "faggot gringo".

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.
