Patrick: I would like a super burrito with no meat and no tortilla.
Taqueria lady: we can’t do that because we have nothing to put it in.
P: you don’t have a box or bowl?
P: what do you put nachos in?
TL: a nacho box
P: can a burrito go in the nacho box?
TL: yes. I can burrito in a box.
P: a burrito without the tortilla?
TL: no, we can’t do that. But you can order all the burrito stuff as side orders.
P: will you put it all in one box?
TL: no we don’t have a box for that
P: can you put all the side orders together in a nacho box?
TL: oh I don’t know. Hold on. (asks for manager approval) yes we can do that. But you can never do it again!!!
P: great. Next I would like carnitas nachos without chips.
TL: no chips? We can’t do that.
P: really? I’m only asking that you skip a step.
TL: (asks manager) sorry, we can’t do that.
P: oh come on, I’m super hungry. 😦
TL: (she has a shockingly long conversation with manager in Spanish). ok, just this once, but you can never (waves finger) order this again.
P: great. Thank you. (I pay, cash only, leave tip).
(Tortilla’less burrito is served in 5 individual tiny cups and nachos were perfect and delicious).
