Woman just doesn’t get that she’s not in a Burger King

A hangry woman claimed she couldn’t order French fries at a Taco Bell — because workers there are racist, a now viral video shows.

The unidentified, and apparently very confused woman enters the fast food joint and tells the cashier, “I just literally want a medium French fries from the dollar menu,” the two-minute social media video shows.

The Taco Bell worker then chimes in saying, “French fries? We don’t sell French fries” to which the would-be customer responds: “You’re Burger King. You don’t sell French fries?”

Attempting to clear up the confusion, the employee says, “You think you’re in Burger King. This is Taco Bell. Welcome to Taco Bell…we don’t sell French fries.”

Then the agitated woman appears to ask for some variation of French fries from the burrito and taco franchise before she turns around and addresses other customers saying: “This is racism at its f—king finest.”

A patron at the eatery can be heard telling her “It’s not, girl,” prompting her to double-down and say “No, it is.”

The patron then tells the woman, “They got tacos and burritos…look at the menu,” before another customer jumps in and is heard calling the woman “ignorant as f—k.”

The woman appears to grow increasingly agitated, saying she had asked a worker at the window, “‘Do you sell French fries?’ And she said nothing to me. She just looked at me like I was a piece of sh-t.”

“I have enough problems in my life,” the woman says as a Taco Bell worker tries to alleviate the situation before the woman finally walks out.

The video has been viewed on Facebook more than 171,000 times and more than 20,000 times on YouTube as of Wednesday morning.

It was not immediately known which Taco Bell establishment the incident happened at.

However, just days ago the official Twitter account for Taco Bell hinted in a tweet that the chain may soon serve French fries in response to a tweet by Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus.

“Taco Bell is better than Del Taco but Del Taco has french fries so it’s a real Sophie’s Choice of fast food,” Hoppus tweeted on Oct. 29.

Taco Bell responded to that tweet saying: “That just might change soon, Mark,” along with a smiley face.

The Key to Happiness is Choosing the Right Friends

You know those “friends” or co-workers who always bring you down?  It’s not just in your head.  It’s SCIENCE.

A professor in neuroscience from Northwestern University says the single most important thing you can do to achieve long-term happiness is . . . surround yourself with the right people.

It’s because your brainwaves mimic the brainwaves of the people you spend the most time with.  You unconsciously pick up their way of seeing the world, and the way they act.  You’re literally “on the same wavelength.”

So you should be around people you actually like . . . because you’re going to become more LIKE them.

He says it changes things on an everyday level too.  When you’re in sync with the people around you, you don’t waste energy on small decisions like what to wear or what to do . . . you can just BE, and focus on stuff that actually matters.

In other words, it really doesn’t matter what restaurant you go to.  All that matters is who you’re with.  And with the right people, you’ll be happy regardless.

Are You Getting a Paid Four-Day Weekend For Thanksgiving?

  We know that Americans get way less time off than the people in pretty much any other country . . . I’m pretty sure the French are just getting back from their summer vacations.  But at this time of year, we HAVE to get a break, right?

A new survey asked people if their companies were giving them a four-day weekend over Thanksgiving, with Thursday and Friday as paid days off.  And the answer is . . . yeah, most places are being pretty cool about it.

97% of people say they’ll get a paid day off on Thanksgiving, and 78% will get both Thursday and Friday as paid days off.

And of the people who DO have to work on Thanksgiving, 85% of them will get paid extra.  Hopefully you’re not in that small group of people who have to work Thanksgiving and DON’T get a bonus.  If so, RAGE.
