A man in Georgia recently ordered two XXL Chalupas at a Taco Bell drive thru but claimed that they didn’t have enough meat on them, and after complaining to the management, he decided to take matters into his own hands. However, just when you expected this to be your typical “person calls 9-1-1 over fast food order” internet story, it turns WAY more insane:
The caller told [Manager Cynthia] Thompson that “after getting home realized that there was not enough stuffing inside of his chalupas, and demanded his order be corrected.”
Thompson said that shortly after the call she and other Taco Bell employees “could smell gasoline but was unaware of where it was coming from. They then realized the fire outside of the drive thru window.”
Investigators found the makeshift incendiary device–a “melting plastic bottle with a liquid substance still inside”–outside the Taco Bell, where a large sign beckons patrons to “Come Try The New XXL Chalupa. Bigger Is Better.”
In a way, what else could this beef-deprived customer POSSIBLY do but compile a homemade Molotov cocktail and whip it at the chalupa sign? Order another taco for 79 cents??? Yes????? Ok. Another course of action would’ve been not cramming a racial slur into his complaint, but again, hindsight is always 20/20 in these Taco Bell firebombing cases.
