There is no evidence supporting that blonde girls say or do more dumb things than girls with other hair colors, and I consider it wrong to stereotype any person based solely on appearance traits. I am pretty sure everyone has a 'blonde moment' every now and then. Personally I don't mind a good 'dumb blonde' joke, but if people actually believe that blonde girls generally are dumber than other people, I think they have less between their ears than any blonde.
I'm sorry, but how is this a FML... She wasn't very bright, okay, but why does that mean shit for you?
And then she asked for sour scream and cheese without like, the cheese?
Maybe she just meant she wanted one with the same other ingredients that burrito has but with chicken instead? Still, pretty dumb.
I still don't see why she was being dumb. I've never heard of Chipotle though, and AFAIK Subway is an underground train (seriously worst name for sandwich chain ever). Anyway I've never been in either and don't know how they work, but I can't see why it would be so dumb to order a steak burrito with the steak replaced with chicken.
91- ever think that maybe they're called sub sandwiches because the bun they're made on is shaped similar to a subway? For whatever reason I always thought that might be part of the etymology. Or it could be random coincidence and whoever started the Subway chain wanted to play up the fact that they specialize in sub sandwiches. Either way, still not the worst name for a sandwich place ever. But the teenager was stupid because there was no reason to ask for a steak burrito but with chicken. She could've just asked for a chicken burrito. It's like asking for a chocolate milkshake, but with vanilla flavor instead. It's ridiculous.
as long as the point gets across there is nothing wrong with the phrasing... when I was a kid with very little knowledge of English (which is not my native language), I visited the US on a trip with family. At some point I wanted to order chocolate milk, and found no way to say it to the cashier other than "hot chocolate, but cold". I didn't know it was called chocolate milk, but I knew 'hot chocolate'. The point is that it doesn't fucking matter. I got what I wanted in the end. In a similar situation I once asked for ice water with no ice. I guess I didn't remember the word "cold", or something. Again, as long as the point gets across it doesn't make a fucking difference. Some people have difficulty phrasing themselves and if you think that makes them dumb, then fuck you.
It's times like this that make me ashamed to be a teenage girl
sone people try to make their order sound more sophisticated than they really are.
