Burrito Por Favor
With inflation being in full swing, I am really starting to see the impact on my wallet. My every day lunch staple, a bean and cheese burrito from my favorite lunch truck, Loco Locos Burritos, has just seen a price increase from $3 to $3.50. This is simply unacceptable, especially since I well remember the days of a $2.50 bean and cheese burrito at Loco Locos.
So, I have been forced to make some tough decisions. The other day I walked straight by the Loco Loco truck and Maria's golden smile to purchase a bean and cheese burrito at the cart next door for only $2.50. Unfortunately, they didn't quite understand my order (half pinto, half black beans - easy on the cheese), and I ended up with a burrito cut in half with extra cheese.
I either need to improve my Spanish or I need to stop thinking that I can order in Spanish. I sure hope this recession ends soon.
