Taco Bell (website)
13830 Georgia Avenue Silver Spring, MD 20906 Northgate Plaza Shopping Center 301 871 9286
This place is enemy territory.
Watch out for the violent and racist Latin American girl-gangsters.
Then again, the same can be said for any fast-food drive-thru in Aspen Hill, and much of the rest of the area.
Depending on the time you might visit this Taco Bell, you will likely encounter different groups of staffers.
There is a certain crew of foreign nation staffers who definitely qualify as American-Hating Foreign Racists (AHFR). Simply stated, there is a rather widespread attitude among a lot of the young-adult foreigners that all whites who aren't traveling in groups in large SUV and dressed like Federal agents are "fair game".
Like many such, they have a certain bag of tricks which seems to be widely circulated in the subculture of AHFR. Among other things, they like to "serve" customers at the drive-in window with tricks like taking your money, making change, handing you the change, and the instant that the money leaves their hands, they move very rapidly to slap you on the firehead, etc. Then they act very casually as if nothing had happened. Comparable juvenile stupidity is quite commonplace, and they seem to have a "trick of the day" or "trick of the week" and it changes from day to day or week to week. Whatever you're expecting, they'll generally try something else.
To be fair, some of the staffers at this Taco Bell are not complete assholes from abroad who forget how very far from home they really are. As a rule, most of the complete assholes don't last very long, but they do immense damage to the reputation of the store, the shopping center, and the neighborhood.
Taco Bell management has, on several occasions in the last decade, replaced 100-percent of the staff and management and hired fresh replacements. Yet, within weeks, the new staff were up to the same tricks as were the old staffers. One reasonably presumes that either it is almost impossible to find anyone who wants to work at Taco Bell in the slum zone of Aspen Hill who is also not an asshole from abroad, or perhaps they were incited by one of the many competing stalker gangs such as the Convenience Store Mafia.
