Chipotle Mexican Grill No Longer Serving Student Drinks

In just the past couple of weeks there has been a very troubling event in my life and that is that Chipotle Mexican Grill is no longer serving student drinks. It used to be that if you slid right up to the cash register while paying for your food you could flash your student identification card and they would hand you a free regular drink. That was a nice break considering that a chicken burrito with guacamole was about $8 a trip. now, with a drink its over $9.

Now I first discovered this when I visited the Chipotle in Cerritos, CA when I requested a student drink while showing proper identification and the cashier declined. Now I immediately became suspicious because there was an event month earlier in which I visited the Chipotle in Orange, CA and the cashier told me they didn’t give free drinks. I told him I went to Chipotle all the time and they gave out student drinks so after giving me a hard time he simply laughed it off and said “Just kidding”. It was frustrating then and even more frustrating now as I was severely caught off guard. She notified me that they no longer gave out student drinks. I asked her if it was just at the one location but she said that it was company policy and was fact at all of their locations.

I am severely battered by this latest news as Chipotle is definitely up there on my top 5 favorite restaurants of all time. I do plan on still indulging in the great Mexican food there but I think I will have to cut back on my ordering because unlike their shirts say they’re meat isn’t free.

Busy busy busy!

Yeah so I have been hella busy for a while. Stressin over my site, photography, school and all that stuff. Anyways there are alot of new things. Yesterday I had fun at youth group. After we went to Pedros – Yummy!!! Anyways I ordered and was about to give the lady cash and there it was… a spider on the counter. Well it was sorta freaky for me and especially for the lady at the cash register. So wut does she do? She blows it away. Wait… But I was standing right in front of her so she ended up blowing it on me – wut a dumb-butt lol. Anyways it was weird. Then next thing we know there were 2 sheriff cars that were burning rubber with sirens blowin and lights flashing – crap they were going fast. Next thing you know it was just Nick, Kevin and I. What do guys like? EXPLOSIONs!!! lol. So we had a 2 liter bottle full of Mountain Dew and well Nick tells us that it will explode if we put a bunch of Mentos in it. Well 7-11 was right across the street. So we go across and when we come out who is there? The Department of Homeland Security. lol! The randomest van in the world. So we went in the Pedro’s parking lot and threw some Mentos in but it was pretty weak. End of story. Then today was cool but then a bust. I took a bunch of background pictures for chapel and then later took some head shots for Krista. There were some pretty good ones in there I must admit. Then I went to the baseball game and it was raining. Sad sad. I couldn’t take any pictures & I got soaked. Anyways there has been a lot more going on but I’ll update this Later.
