8 Reasons Why Chipotle Closing Could Have Been the End of the World

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at PSU chapter.

It may not be the end of the world any longer but if the immediate outrage that ensued among the entire Penn State student population was any indicator, I think it’s safe to say it’s a very good thing this burrito crisis was short-lived. Welcome back Chipotle, and don’t you ever leave us again.

3) Qdoba just isn’t good enough.

4) You search the website for the next closest Chipotle, but are crushed when you see that it’s in Altoona (It might as well be on another planet).

6) The presence of guacamole in pop culture disintegrates.

7) You are forced to result in making your own dinner. Blasphemous.
