An anonymous tipster wrote to us about how Chipotle, known for their delicious, healthy burritos, handled a Hepatitis A outbreak at his neighborhood store. This might be the one case of a corporation giving you something for free, and it not making the situation any better. Read his letter, inside.
At the very least, Donna’s plan could put things in perspective for spendthrifts out there. Then there are those of us tightwads who’ll read it find ourselves saying, “Yeah, I do that!”
