Diners are more enamored with delivery and take-out food than ever before. But though these options have their advantages, some parts of dining-in can’t be replicated. Like food integrity: At a restaurant, the food is served exactly as it’s supposed to be eaten; after a 45 minute trip home bouncing around and cooling down in your car, not so much.
Twitter user Josh Williams thought he had found a solution to this problem – at least when it came to ordering to-go at Chipotle – and over the weekend, he shared this “hack.” “Started asking the folks at Chipotle to individually package my ingredients so I can assemble it all at home,” he wrote, accompanied by a photo of a bag full of tiny plastic cups filled with ingredients. “Am I weird? Or brilliant?”
- Employees Are Suing Chipotle Over Unpaid Overtime Wages
- Chipotle’s Payment System Was Hacked
- Chipotle Just Raised Its Prices in Hundreds of Restaurants

To be fair, he posed the question, and Twitter quickly answered. Some people appreciated his efforts, especially after he explained how he had to get the grub back to his kids at home. “I live 45 minutes from Chipotle now,” he later wrote. “If I take it home assembled, it gets cold and soggy.” But in general, Twitter’s sentiment was that he was neither brilliant, nor weird, but instead, he was just every quick-service employee’s nightmare. “Don't be this guy,” one user responded, in a tweet that racked up a lot of likes “Chipotle employees already slave away to long lines & a fast pace and you making them do this. You're cruel.”
