As If You Needed Another Reason To Stay Away From Taco B(H)ell

Photo of a guy appearing to lick the taco shells. Obviously the guy will lose his job, which begs the question "how dumb do you have to be to get fired from Taco Bell?"

That's why the Cool Ranch tacos have no flavor!

I like how he edited out his eyes, as if that is enough to hide his identity.

Hey if a domino mask works for Robin, then nobody will recognize this guy either!!

It's OK if they give you enough sauce packets to mask the saliva.

I never use the drive thru at Taco Bell because of their apparent lack of math skills. I'd order 6 items and ask for "a lot" of sauce, and find 4 packs in the bag.

" The photo was actually part of an internal contest which urged employees to submit photos of themselves enjoying their first bite of the new product, "

I see nothing wrong if it was part of a contest, knowing that the product was not meant for consumption.

So why was he fired if it was part of a photo contest and they know these taco shells were trash.

From the second article:
The photo was actually part of an internal contest which urged employees to submit photos of themselves enjoying their first bite of the new product, though the company says this entry is in clear violation of the guidelines and is unacceptable.
Unfortunately, they didn't post what the guidelines were, so I have to assume it's because he wasn't using the plastic gloves that are required attire.

I hope he can find another job as good as Taco Bell.

Poor kid. He's going to be turning tricks outside Taco Bell.

And let's face it, that guy's spit is not the worst thing you're going to eat at Taco Bell. Might not even be in the Top 5.

That infuriates me...I finally have just broken down and say a minimum of 2 packets per item. AND they still get it fucking wrong. Of course I could fix the problem by getting my lazy ass out of the car and go in; but I am not going to do that.

The only way these guys could possibly think that posing for a picture like this isn't going to go viral is if all their friends pose for other pictures just as bad (or worse) and DON'T go viral.
