Normally, shit like what I am about to rant about,
is water off a duck's back to me....
I mean – it's just another one of those things that you have to ROUTINELY endure,
when you live in a world full of ASSHOLES.
But for some
this one little incident just pissed me off,
and ruined what was a rainy, but nonetheless GREAT day.
Instead of going off the deep-end
and throwing a rock through the window,
or collecting 40 pounds of dog shit and dumping it at the front door,
I'll just "vent" right here where the world can see it....
Us is not just a catchy name for a Web site....
Short and to-the-point....
It's midnight on April 12, 2007.
My dog Rocky is busting to go for his nightly walk.
Here he is.
Little Shep-Terrier devil!
I had a few
packages and letters to mail,
and I was going to be up all night
editing a friend's
I figured I'd walk over to Taco Bell's drive-through window
and get a few Tacos to hold me down.
I like Tacos,
and Taco Bell is 1/2 block from where I live, in Woodside, Queens....
on 60th Street off Northern Boulevard.
So I mailed the
Rocky did his "dookies",
and I walked over to the drive-thru (the restaurant was closed at this hour),
and waited behind two cars getting their orders.
I walked up
to the window and said,
"Give me a number 1 Taco Burrito, and a
So the Asshole
behind the window says,
"I can't take your order".
I asked "Why not? You closed?"
He says "You're not driving".
I thought for a second....
then I mimed being behind the wheel of a car....
and honked the make-believe "horn"....
but the DIPSHIT at the window didn't get it.
He says "Company policy".
I said, "Some SHIT!"
And I walked away.
let me ask YOU.
What kind of fucking Corporate ASSHOLE
sits behind a desk with a Mexican sombrero,
fat and happy behind a multi-billion dollar franchise restaurant
AND THINKS UP STUPID SHIT LIKE THIS?
does it make if I'm driving a car or not?
Was I supposed
to go home and drive my car for half a block,
so I could comply with some asshole's
They say there
is a reason behind everything in this life....
But the reason behind this; I'm at a total loss to even venture a guess.
Maybe if you're on foot, you don't qualify to be a customer....
Just like black people 100 years ago were 1/3 of a person....
That's GOTTA be it.
Lemme' call the ACLU.
Hell, if you can sue McDonald's over a cup of hot coffee...
I could win
I could get TACOS for LIFE.
On second thought....
Tell you what.
I went to Taco Bell's Web site at
clicked on the "contact us" link,
and entered the following:
"I was refused service
at your drive-through window because I wasn't driving a car. The idiot behind
the glass said it was "company policy". I live 1/2 block away, and I'm a good
customer, but tonight I was just looking for a snack. I have written-up the
incident on my web site www.AssholesAmongUs.com/tacosincorporated.htm
I am surprised that you discriminate against people because they don't drive
their car for 1/2 block just to get a midnight snack. One pissed-off customer
might not put a dent in your business.... but it WILL get you a few chuckles on
THINK OUTSIDE THE BUN..... BUM".
I am curious to
see what their response is.
I'm not holding my breath.
And I'll go to Wendy's or White Castle next time....
Or just stock-up on snack food.

– They NEVER ANSWERED THIS LETTER
And YESTERDAY, I
TRIED THE DRIVE-THROUGH AGAIN.... AND THE SAME THING HAPPENED.
Par for the course!
