U of M posts love letter to Chipotle worker on Instagram

Posted By on Thu, Aug 20, 2015 at 10:43 AM

The University of Michigan's posted what many are calling an "ode to a hot cashier" on its official Instagram account earlier this week as part of its series "Wolverines of Ann Arbor," a localized play on the popular "Humans of New York" series.

The New York Times' Katie Rosman tweeted out the post on Monday, Tech Insider reports, helping it make its Internet rounds and earn over 2,200 likes.

Here's the original U of M post:

Introducing 'Wolverines of Ann Arbor,' our adaptation of the popular Humans of New York campaign. All statements made by individuals may not necessarily represent the beliefs and opinions of the University. Submit nominees to “My relationship with Chipotle is strained right now because my bae, the cashier guy, hasn’t been there in a while and I haven’t seen him at all. So like, if I’m with him, I usually have to see what he’s working, cause if he’s working in the back I’ll have to try and get his attention and say, 'there aren’t any forks.’ I can’t look at anyone else. You just focus in on him; everyone does! It’s that smile, and if he see’s this, he’ll know it’s him! He’s actually a model. He knows people know that he’s a model, and we told him he was very good! He has hazel eyes, golden-cream skin, the perfect smile….brownish-blonde hair! You wanna know his name? Jordan. So, if people say “Chipotle Bae,” they’re talking about him.” “If you could say anything to him right now, what would it be?” “You so fine.” #WolverinesofAnnArbor

So who exactly is this "Jordan" fellow? This guy, Tech Insider says.

Apparently the #chipotlebae will be back on campus slinging burritos in September. Look for him then.
