Chipotle Es Muy Fabuloso

Last week, I received an email from my neighborhood Chipotle telling me that my business card was drawn and I had won 5 free lunches for me and 4 co-workers. Sweet deal, I thought. I eat there sometimes twice a week anyway.

And then I got an idea.

As it was also my birthday, and the office rule is that the birthday person brings treats in for the entire office, I sent an email response to Chipotle, thanking them for the freebies, but wondering if they could extend the lunch offer to everyone in my office so that I could provide lunch for everyone on my birthday instead of cookies, brownies or anything else unhealthy. The catch was that there are 45 people in my office.

A few minutes later I received an email back from Chipotle that said, "Sure, why not?" So on Monday, my entire 45-person office ate a free lunch at Chipotle, and I STILL get the 5 free lunches to use anytime next week. Remember what I said about customer service last week? Apparently it still does exist ... but in very rare quantities.


  1. WOW! That is great! I'm so jealous. I love Chipolte and eat there whenever I get a chance.

  2. The BF loves it, me not so much, but now maybe I can see my way to give them some slack...way to score DOP.

  3. You are awesome! What a great idea!

  4. Further reinforcement that Chipotle is only a source of absolute goodness. Sweet deal, and happy belated bday!

  5. I can't believe people acutally win those things....!!!!!!!!!
