It must suck to be working there today.


It's not today, it's the 30th, and it's only from 2-5, so it will be a crazy 3 hours I'm sure, but it could have been worse. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.

yeah i knew that. What I'm saying is it would suck to be working at tacobell today because so many people will come to tacobell today, thinking they could get a free taco, and they would have to explain to each one of them that they can't get it till the 30th.

Didn't Taco Bell have issues with ecoli? Since then, I can't get that nasty thought out of my head. Free tacos are cool though.

The kind of people that will be going for their free taco are the same people who drive clear across town and spend a half hour to save $0.03 per gallon on gas. Those 10 miles and thirty minutes net you a savings of about $0.50.

If I were already planning on being in a Taco Bell between 2:00-5:00 on the 30th, I'd avoid it just so I didn't have to deal with the hassle. Unless I was homeless, you'd have to offer me at least five free tacos before the hassle would be worth it.

This isn't available in Canada :,-( . I'm thinking of driving down to Buffalo for this. Do you think that they'll check passports or ask for ID?

If the people at the cash register at the Buffalo Taco Bell are anything like the cashiers at our taco bell's in the area, you should have no problem :-)

Funniest part about that is that some actually lose money doing it.

20 gallon tank at 3 cents less per gallon: Save 60 cents
10 mile drive in a vehicle that gets 30 MPG = 1/3rd of a gallon blown
1/3rd of a gallon at $3 per gallon = $1 blown

Bottom line: Spent an extra 40 cents. :-b Not to mention the time factor. :*)

Bah, Taco Bell. I'm petrified about going to Taco Bell. Way before the e-coli run-ins, I've known a few people who have gotten sick because of food eaten at the Taco Bell nearest to me.

I wish it was Baja Fresh doing the giveaway promotion, but I find most Mexican fast food joints to be drab anyway unless it was a local fixture like Tito's Tacos.

BTW, I hope you realize it's just one free taco per person. ;-) :-b

Not to mention it will be burned up in gas. All the starting/stopping will burn a gallon ($3+) easy, even in a car that gets good mileage.

Taco Bell is banking on mooches across the country listening to your very logical arguments. Unfortunatly for you, only one fact matters. Those Tacos are FREE!
