Snowed In Drunk Man Uses Craigslist To Get Emergency Taco Bell
A man in Maryland who was too drunk to drive to Taco Bell posted an ad on Craigslist to see if someone could drive him there.
The ad read as follows:
"Guys it's snowing like a bi--h outside, I've had a few drinks too many, and my sh*tty little hybrid douchemobile can't possibly make it to the neighborhood Taco Bell in this weather. I need someone with a 4 wheel drive vehicle to come pick my drunk ass up, take me to the Taco Bell drive-thru, and drive me back home. Then we can hang out and play video games if you're not a rapist. This is maybe 2 miles round trip. I'll pay in tacos. or chalupas. whatever. Seriously my desire for tacos right now is totally unmanageable, so I'd probably even buy you a 7 layer burrito if you asked nicely.
No one responded to his ad, but the man said he sobered up, and went himself.
