    Here's How People React When A Blizzard Hits On Chipotle's Free Burrito Day

    #GuacamolePriorities.

    Jan. 26 is the much-celebrated FREE BURRITO DAY at Chipotle.

    Chipotle.com

    You don't actually GET the free burrito today — you have to buy something off of their new Sofritas menu today and then you can bring back your receipt to get a free taco, burrito, or burrito bowl of your choosing.

    And everybody's like:

    Except! There's a blizzard on, and many people can't even make it out the door to get to their local Chipotle!

    HBO

    SADDDDDNESSSSSSSS!!!

    And they've taken to Twitter to express their frustration.

    There were the conspiracy theorists.

    I'm thinking this blizzard is just a shrewd tactic by Chipotle to give out fewer free burritos.

    And veiled threats.

    If this blizzard hinders my ability to get free #Chipotle tomorrow there will be severe consequences.

    This woman had her limits.

    Twitter is all SNOW BLIZZARD SNOW, so when coworkers ask if I'll walk to Chipotle (down the street) I'm, "In this weather? Are you crazy?!"

    Frankie B kind of had the right idea.

    Blizzard Prep 101: Buy enough Chipotle to last the duration of the storm plus 5 days.

    People showed their fortitude and dedication to the deal.

    It's 11:15 and there's a blizzard outside, but the line for a free #burrito at @ChipotleTweets has already formed.

    And this guy clearly had his priorities straight.

    Going to meet an early grave by venturing out during a blizzard for a B1G1 Chipotle burrito. At least I died chasing my passion.
