How This Guy Almost Got Arrested For Using The Chipotle App


Everyone’s got a hilarious fuck up story. Y’know, the one where one innocent mistake escalates into something terrible.

This guy steefkeef from Reddit, has a pretty hilarious one concerning Chipotle’s ordering app. He recently posted in the popular subreddit TIFU (Today, I Fucked Up) recalling an experience at his local Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Behold his unfortunate tale. Like everything else that’s posted on Reddit, take it with a grain of salt.

I was leaving my office when I decided to order Chipotle for the first time using the app. I typed in my credit card information and ordered a burrito bowl. I then got a confirmation email in the name of my girlfriend, but I didn’t think anything of it since I knew she uses the app all the time and has used it on my phone before.

When I get there I ask for the order I placed. The lady looked at me suspiciously and asked me for an ID. I told her that it’s probably under my girlfriend’s name and that I can show her the confirmation email. As I told her this, I get weird stare from a guy in the back on the phone, and a few other employees working the line. The guy came up to me and told me I had to wait there.

Turns out, I placed an order using my girlfriend’s saved credit card which she had lost a few days before. Chipotle called her to tell her that there was no guac available that night, which lead her to think that I, the thief, was using her ‘stolen’ card. She told them that I had stolen her card and to call the cops and detain me. That’s exactly what they were doing until I called her to get things straightened out.

Yup, almost got arrested for ordering a burrito bowl.
