Daylight Savings Time Ignorance Plus Burrito Rage Equals Spelling Fun At Taco Bell

We know how it goes — it’s 2 a.m., the bar has pushed you out the door and the first thing your mind turns to is where to pick up a little late-night satisfaction. In the form of fast food Mexican, of course. Woe betide the Taco Bell aficionado yearning for a “boreto” who is ignorant not only of how to spell burrito, but of the customs of Daylight Savings Time, then.

What’s a hungry guy or gal to do when they show up after the springing forward has already happened? Leave an irate, illiterate note, of course, points out

Because we don’t approve of the “see you next Tuesday” word that actually starts with a “c” and ends with “complete disrespect for all womankind,” we’ve blacked it out. We’re sure that wasn’t the only thing blacked out in relation to this story.

No inebriatos for you, buddy! Time to review the rules of global time customs.


How to illiterately express your displeasure with Daylight Savings Time at your local Taco Bell drive-thru []

    In the OP’s defense, it’s “BORETO”, not “bureto”, which makes the sign at least 2.124 times more awesome.

  2. Loias supports harsher punishments against corporations says:

    Ignorant people need boritos, too, ya know.

  3. Bagels says:

    i wonder what was blacked out….

  4. bosozoku says:

    “Daylight Saving Time”

    I just don’t think I’ll ever understand the aversion women have to THAT word. You can say every nasty word ever, but as soon as THAT word is uttered, it’s all over.

    It’s only a word, you silly bunts.

  7. dulcinea47 says:

    I love it when people misspell things that are spelled out right in front of them. It’s my favorite. (I’m guessing “burrito” is spelled out several times at least on that board.)

  8. Coffee says:

    The lack of a comma in the OP’s last sentence makes me wonder why he had to go to Taco Bell to eat out.

    • Sanspants says:

      Maybe it’s intentional and he used “boreto” as an adjective.

      • Coffee says:

        Yes…which begs the question: what was he doing at the Taco Bell drive-thru? Kind of racist to assume that’s where you’d go for that kind of thing, no?

    • Cat says:

      I thought it would be a taco,
      If they served them in “boreto” flavor, I’d eat out there. I’ve never had a boreto one, and I’ve eaten Mexican before.

  9. rpm773 says:

    Sorry dude, the drive-thru’s closed. The moose out front should have told ya.

  10. Minj says:

    You don’t approve of the word? But you would probably have no problem with any word directed at a man, right?

    • Coffee says:

      Shut up, you ‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà.


      You ‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà.


      You motherfucking ‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà‚ñà!!!


      Yep…they don’t like derogatory language aimed at men either.

    • Misha says:

      I do, actually.

      • Misha says:

        Clarifying: I am a woman and I don’t use or care for gender-based insults directed at either gender.

    • theduckay says:

      aah…you’re one of those people I see.

      Some words are more offensive and have more stigma than others…that’s just the way it is. You don’t get to decide which words are offensive and which aren’t, especially when you’re complaining about a word that is greatly offensive to women, of which you are not (I’m assuming).

  11. DrPizza says:

    Before calling someone “ignorant not only of how to spell burrito,” one might want to proof read the rest of the sentence.

    Repeat after me: “daylight saving time.”

    • Round-Eye §ñ‰∫∫„ÅØ„Ç≥„É≥„Çπ„Éû„É™„ÉÉ„Çπ„Éà„ÅåÂ•Ω„Åç„Åß„Åô„ÄÇ says:

      This was addressed higher up in the thread by Coffee. But, still, the term “Daylight Saving Time” is grammatically incorrect to begin with. At best, it’s a clause wherein “daylight” is the subject, “saving” is the verb (gerund in this case), and “time” is the direct object – to wit: “My favorite thing to do is watch daylight saving time.” As if daylight were taking time and putting it in a jar.

      The correct way for EVERYONE to write this phrase would be “daylight-saving time”.

    • sadie kate says:

      FYI, “proofread” should be one word.

  12. Cat says:

    This is all Ben Franklin’s fault.

  13. RedOryx says:

    DST doesn’t go into effect until 2am, so chances are he juuuuuuust missed it.

    Oh the humanity.

    • DemosCat says:

      Given that Tacky Bell did, in fact, close an hour early in terms of actual working hours due to the time change, does this mean they will stay open an extra hour on November 4, 2012 when the clock “rewinds” from 01:59:59 back to 01:00:00?

  14. LD says:

    You, sir, just won the internet!

  15. Hungry Dog says:

    I’m more amused the proper spelling of burrito is on the next sign over.

  16. YouDidWhatNow? says:

    Give the guy a break…it’s not like there was an example of how to spell “burrito” like right there.

  17. aaron8301 says:

    Who goes to Taco Bell to get a boreto cunt? I figured that’d be something you order at a house of ill repute. Regardless, I like fresh, clean cunt. I’m not down with this boreto cunt fad at all.

  18. AtlantaCPA says:

    Who else thinks Daylight Saving Time needs to be repealed? Or just switch to it and stay that way all year if you are so desperate for daylight during particular hours.

    I hate it, with two small children it’s torture and it takes a month to get adjusted, then a few months later it’s time to switch again.

    • zumdish says:

      Doesn’t bother me. 48 hours after and I’m perfectly in sync. I like the extra daylight at the end of the day, but at my latitude mornings would be too dark in Winter to keep it all year long.

  19. Kuonji says:

    A “complete disrespect to all womankind”? Oh please.

  20. JonBoy470 says:

    This guy was clearly a dumas. And yes, he’s so bad he doesn’t deserve to have it spelled correctly…

  21. framitz says:

    I forgot about the time change until I saw the time on my PC and phone didn’t match my analog clock. No harm done, I just changed the time on the few devices that don’t get time from the network.

    And it’s obviously burrito, not the other nonsense, as if that matters at all.

  22. Insert nickname here. says:

    The proper phrase is “daylight-saving time.”
