OK you know what really grind my shit. In my town Manteca, we have a little taqueria called La Costa. This place was the shit. When it first opened you could buy a decent sized burrito for 2.50. For that price you were getting a bargain. About a year later, they realize they have something good and bump the price up a dollar. No problem, it's still worth it. Now about two years ago, they decide to start charging tax. Not really a problem, but the fact that the quality drops a little is kinda depressing, but oh well, still the best deal in town. Now heres what pisses me off. This year, not only do they charge a new price of 3.75 plus tax, but the quality has gone to SHIT, and I do mean SHIT. You could get a better burrito at taco bell, and taco bell is white washed. Not only that, but they call the burrito a "Super Burrito." This place is mainly held up by repeat business. In a small town like mine, pretty much everything is. Now how in the hell are you going to call the same burrito you used to sell a super burrito? Theres nothing different about it except the increase in price and the decrease in quality. It got so bad that I decided to fork up the extra two bucks to go to the competition. I didn't want to do it, since going to the other places means paying more, but I can't handle it anymore. They have surpassed you in quality by far, which is why the entire town is jumping ship. The other places give you a bag of warm chips, and unlimited little cups you can fill with salsa and limes and other things you would find at your normal taqueria. The only time I would go to these places is when I wanted something great, and my friends and I had some tequila and we needed limes for it. Kazuko I hear you live in the neighboring town of Tracy, and I don't know if you eat at the La Costa, but some input would be greatly appreciated, since you have two in Tracy.

I just went to Taqueria La Cumbre in downtown San Mateo.  It was pretty good.  You should try it there :)

Taco Bell makes me want to barf up my small intestines, so I feel for you and your Taqueria loss.

If it doesn't feel as if you just doused your tongue with the very essence, the very soul of the fire gods, it isn't spicy enough.

Ha! I second that! I used to eat at Taco Bell because back in 'the day' it was the only place you could get a meal for $2.

What is REALLY sad, is that even Taco has gone down hill from what it was.

As far as spicy food, my motto is " If I can taste the last bite, it's no good"

So I guess there is a slight gear-grinder; restaurants that claim they're food is SOO spicy you'll catch on fire, and is just doused in pepper. or is just 'spicy' with no flavor.

I was joking with my mom the other that they put the beans on the burrito through a squirt gun of some sort and she said that they actually make them like that.

  I live in Seattle so of coarse there aren't as many authentic Mexican places around here.
   
The few that do exist though, damn are they good, and cheap! I especially love how the authentic ones sell Mexican Coke. I like it much better than regular coke, it's not as sweet.

Anyway, something that grinds my gears; people who complain EXTENSIVLEY about finals./school in general.
Yes, they can be stressful (  even then I think most make it a much bigger deal than it is) and some complaining is perfectly acceptable.

Then there are some, who just bitch and bitch, rather vehemently  as if they think  'how DARE I have to put forth to pass a class"

 For the longest time I REALLY wanted to goto school and was pretty envious of those who already were. Now that I am in school I'm just as annoyed by people bitch like that.
 It's a PRIVLAGE if your such a lay little fuck that you would rather just mooch off of your parents for the rest of your life then get out of collage so the money can go towards someone who WANTS to be there.

I don't know if I really want to go to collage, its not that I don't like it, its just that I don't know what I want to do with my life after High School.

Alot of people don't, and people go to college in order to find that out, it's normal what you are feeling.
