So, I must be on a quest to eat at every Taco Bell in Lansing or something.  I got out of work around 9:00 and headed to my hotel.  When I stay in Lansing, I almost always stay at the Red Roof Inn on Dunkel Road.  The closest restaurant is either Taco Bell or Subway.  Both are right down the street as part of the Sunoco gas station just off I-494.  I wanted something warm, so I chose Taco Bell.

Even though it was only 9:00, the counter was already closed.  If I wanted tacos, I would have to go through the drive thru.  In order to do that, you have to go all the way around the building.  I’ve documented many times why I hate drive thrus and this expereience was no difference. 

I pulled up to the speaker and waited.  The girl working started talking before she clicked the button, so I only heard half of what she said.  I just wanted tacos, so I clearly belted out my order of five crunchy tacos.  What I heard back was, “Nachos supreme?”  No, five crunchy tacos.  The second time, she got it and told me to pull around. 

The total was just over five bucks.  I didn’t get a pop because I had actually planned to go back into the gas station and get a cheaper one from their fountain.  That never happened and I just bought one at the hotel.

When I got back to my room, I opened the bag and got really confused.  The taco shells were red like the ones used for the Volcano Taco.  It wouldn’t have bothered me if I had gotten five Volcano Tacos, but I didn’t.  Just red shells.  I’m guessing they just ran out of the regular shells and were improvising.  Not a big deal.  They taste the same.

Well, I polished off my tacos quickly and was still hungry.  It was a long day without a lot to eat.  I should have ordered a few more, but I didn’t and I didn’t feel like going back.  I have at least one more overnight trip to Lansing where I’ll stay at “my hotel.”  Probably go back then.
