    An obsession that transcends extra costs for guac.

    1. You're that person who shows up at various non-restaurant locations with a bag of Chipotle, thus making everyone hate you.

    2. You honor the first rule of Chipotle: don’t even mention the place after 10 - it’s closed.* That's cruel. / Via

    *11pm exceptions do exist. If you know one, cherish it.

    3. You have taken a first date - and a second date - well, most dates - to Chipotle.

    5. You aren't afraid to ask politely when you'd like some more meat.

    8. Hearing someone say “Chi-pol-tay” is akin to being called an ethnic slur.

    9. When things aren't too busy, you love to sneak in a heart-to-heart with the manager by the cash register.

    10. ...and that friendship has led you to something better than any christmas gift - a free lunch.

    11. You are thrilled to recognize when the seasoned "A-team" of line workers come out to take care of business.
