We got our free tacos

Taco Bell made good on its promise to give everyone a free taco today between the hours of 2 and 5 p.m.

The genial young gentleman pictured above gave us ours (there were three of us) and hinted that if we wanted to go back through the drive-thru before the 5 pm deadline it was OK by him.

There was one snag.

If you went through the drive-thru and tell the microphone device that you wanted the free tacos along with whatever else you might have ordered, and then proceeded to the window and expected to be able to request your free tacos at that juncture in the process, you were shit outta luck. At least at the Taco Bell we patronized.

This was explained to us by the lady in the first window who takes your money.

She said some customers were upset by not being able to just drive up to the second window and order free tacos.

As she explained it, "We just can't give out free tacos to ever-body."
