PureBS Summary:  If you don’t know what to say, talk about the man sentenced to 50 years for stealing fajitas!

We have all tried to come up with ways to make money one the side.  You know affectionately referred to as a side hustle.  The difference between most of us and Gilberto is we do so legally!  Check this out, 3 minutes of your life and you have a great story to share at the water cooler!!

Here’s what happened:  Gilberto Escamila has stolen over 1.2 million dollars in fajitas over nine years.  Gilberto who worked at a detention centre would order the fajitas have them paid for by the centre then sell them to others.  His home was found with fajitas in the fridge.  He has been sentenced to 50 years in jail meaning if he serves his full time he will be released at 103 years of age.  He managed the fajita scheme for 9 years, it wasn’t until he ordered 800 pounds worth and was sick when they were delivered that he was caught.  Clearly Texas takes the love of fajitas very, very seriously!

Pick a side!

  • So he was able to get over a million dollars in fajitas? How many fajitas can one  centre eat? Also did he order 700 pounds worth and no one thought twice?


  • So he likes fajitas? Really what’s the big deal? Who doesn’t love fajitas, a healthy, delicious amazing meal! My mouth is getting juicy just thinking about them! Clearly his job supported him in this quest or their is no way that he could order 1.2 million dollars worth.  I blame the system around him! This poor man will finish out his years in prison for his love of Mexican cuisine…That’s PureBS!!

I’ve got you started here:

  • What’s the best score you have gotten away with? Something free at the grocery store? Extra cookies given to you by the sandwich shop?
