Damn you, El Monterey!
One of my cheap food staples is El Monterey burritos. You could once upon a time get a 10 pack for less than $3.00. I probably shouldn’t, but I eat them 3 at a time. Anyway…they’ve been getting more and more expensive along with everything else in this world. But we’re in the store the other day, and I noticed they were selling for $2.95! What a deal, I thought!
Well today, I’m pulling the package out of the frezzer like I’ve done countless times before. It seems a little more compact than usual. The bastards didn’t lower the price! They just shorted me 2 burritos! They could have at least been straight with me. You know like a big banner on the package that says “Now with 20% LESS Burritos! Arriba!” Personally I’d be less offended if I were paying more for 10 burritos. I just feel like they tried to pull a fast one on me.
Let me tell you, El Monterey. Your burritos aren’t cheap enough, or good enough, that I can’t find a more faithful quick eats companion. Quick rice has my back.
