Yesterday will go down in history as the worst day ever to have the number 888-2222.
As I reported on, Chipotle gave away one free burrito, burrito bowl, salad, or order of tacos coupon to everybody who texted “raincheck” to 888-222 between the hours of 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST yesterday. Apparently, a lot of people, in a rush to get their free coupon before they all ran out, didn’t think to double check that the number they were texting was correct. This led to Washington D.C.-area lawyer Hank Levine having quite the interesting Monday.

For his troubles, Chipotle is going to give Hank some gift cards. Class act.
When Hank asked how he could help all the people who texted him get free burritos, though, Chipotle was not feeling it.
Update: Chipotle rep just said that she doesn't care to reach the 100+ people who got my F-I-L, not free burritos. pic.twitter.com/KDV3fUc7SU

I love this response. The fewer free burritos handed out, the shorter the already sure-to-be-long-as-shit lines will be.
@WRBolen Yeah you and a zillion other people. Have fun waiting in line for a haphazardly made burrito.

Thanks for looking out for us, you corporate drones..
