IO: A Little Piece Of Me Has Died

Okay, part of this is my quest to get to 1,000 posts before the Las Vegas show, but...



The Taco Bell in my neighborhood just closed. Yes, there are bigger griefs in the world, but it was MY Taco Bell. I've been going there for over 17 years, sometimes up to 3 times a week. They never screwed up my order, the drive-thru would still be open and serve you 1 minute before they were supposed to close, and the staff was nice.

Honestly, I'm selfishly sad, but I'm also sad for the employees. A little piece of me has died.


Mark

My Quizno's closed a few months ago, and it made me sad.

I still make occasional visits to Taco Bell. Chili cheese burritos!

Well, it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.


There are others around that I can go to, but it's not the same. I haven't heard back from TB HQ yet as to the reason.

Heaven help me if I had a Quizno's closer to me.

:fat: :fatter: :explode:

I LOVE the Turkey Bacon Guac. I'm glad I have to fly through Denver a lot, there's a Quizno's in there that I grab for my next flight.
