We've all been there: it's late, you're in a few drinks deeper than you planned to be, and now you're hungry. But there's no food in the house and what you're really craving is some terrible fast food that's simply too far away or too difficult to get to.
On those occasions, most of us call it a night, eat some stale crackers, and go to bed. But for one Baltimore man, that sad fate is not something he was willing to accept. He boldly went to the Internet for assistance with his drunk munchies run.
The snowfall in Baltimore (and the alcohol in his system) meant taking his own two-wheel drive car would be unwise. So he posted to Craigslist asking for a new friend with four-wheel drive to come pick him up, split an order at Taco Bell, and then maybe play some video games (caution: language may be considered offensive):
There's no way of knowing whether his request was answered, but this man should be praised as an innovator of the regrettable, late-night fast food run. No longer does one member of your group have to be the designated driver, nor do you have to order before it's too late for delivery. Simply send a loving offer of free chalupas and tacos (or whatever you're craving) out into the ether and wait for your Internet savior to reply.
