The COVID-19 situation escalated around the world in a way no one expected. This unprecedented nature of the situation required health officials to request the public to restrict their usual activities, with the governments finally imposing a lock down in most of the countries. This created a drastic change in the daily lives of people around the world, keeping them inside houses 24/7. No more Sunday-Fun days. No more running to the grocery store around the corner to satisfy the small cravings. For humans, that is, yes. The trick lies in following the rules literally. This guy did that.
Suddenly, you crave a bag of Cheetos. You can’t wait. You don’t want to go to the store, meet other people, and get infected by the corona-virus either. What do you do? COVID-19 lock down period is actually making people think out of the box and be creative.
This guy from Mexico called Antonio Munoz was craving a bag of Cheetos, and came up with the most genius way to satisfy his craving. He was well aware that he isn’t allowed to go out, to the same extent he was aware that his dog was. So, yes, he did it! He sent his chihuahua to the department store across the street.
He attached a small note to the dog’s collar mentioning his requirement, with a $20 bill.
The note translated into “Hello Mr. Shopkeeper. Please sell my dog some Cheetos, the orange kind, not the red ones, they’re too hot. She has $20 attached to her collar. WARNING: She will bite if not treated right. Your front neighbor.”
While chihuahuas are ‘generally’ thought to be stubborn, this is not the case all the time, and this is one such example.
Twitter users were fascinated by this incident, and had shared their thoughts as the following.
I have been a passionate reader, writer and language learner since a child, and I ended up graduating from University of Peradeniya with a BA (Hons) in English. I am also a JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) Level N2 holder. I have 5+ years experience in content writing/editing, and also 5+ months experience in official/business translation in Sinhala Japanese and English Japanese.
Anyway, the boring stuff aside, during my free time, I sing, play a little bit of guitar, read, draw/paint, bake and play video games.
