And this, dear friends, is why you always read asterisked text in offers…

I got this email today from Chipotle.


Not that I’d ever have food delivered. Heck, I haven’t had food delivered in six years. I don’t like to. Especially during COVID when food pickup gave me an excuse to get out of the house. But for some reason, I read the email anyway.


Hmmmm… what’s that asterisk for?


Extra fees? Higher menu prices? Makes you wonder if it’s enough to offset the “free delivery.” Maybe more.

And you’re welcome!

I certainly don’t want to be the one serving the warrant on this charge… Something tells me we’d never see that person again. I also doubt Putin would be taken alive and without a helluva fight.

I've spent a small amount of time over the course of the last year or so trying to memorize the algorithms that will solve the infamous Rubik's Cube. In case you didn't know, the Rubik's Cube can always be solved....

Same thing whenever you see "free shipping" when ordering anything. There's no line item for it, but you're certainly paying for shipping in the price.


When that happens, I tend to search other stores for it and compare.
