(The Consumerist)   Dear Consumerist: I ordered a veggie sub from Jimmy John's and they forgot the cucumbers and alfalfa sprouts, so they refunded my money. Can I have the manager tried for war crimes under the International Criminal Court in The Hague?   (consumerist.com ) divider line

Over/under on subby submitting a troll complaint to Consumerist and just for the chance to submit it to Fark?

Your first mistake was expecting food from Jimmy John's.

I was going to say something similar. Has this person never encountered a sandwich that didn't look like the ad?

I will follow this up with the fact that Jimmy is a huge Right wing derper/birther who was known to deal drugs from his first few stores and the only reason people went there was to get said drugs. I guess the free market was in his favor. I also believe he is a high school drop out and a known jackass. Personally when I worked for him for a little over the year his staff hated him with a passion and all wanted him to get out of the company by selling it or just never coming in. He has also been known to be suckered into deals because of his overtly sexual harassment conduct he had toward future franchise owners wives. the guy is a loose cannon to say the least.

Subby, what are you going on about? The article said they weren't happy with the food, got a refund, and said they'd never eat there again.

I was hoping from your headline for a story about some nutter complaining to an international court or calling the cops or something. Instead it was just an everyday event and your lame-ass attempt at humour.

Go away now.

They did write to consumerist even though they got a refund to loudly proclaim they would never eat their again.

With as high rez as photography is these days, it is a better idea. A mockup is likely to look like a mockup. Might take a little more work, but the end pictures are better so it is worth it.

I never knew that about the owner. Guess that's another chain that I have to mark off my list (usually don't eat from there anyway) - so I guess that means I won't be purchasing a sub from Jimmy Johns and stuffing it with chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-A.
 
2012-09-10 11:34:53 AM  
Never quite saw the appeal in JJ beyond the whole delivery aspect - if i'm too stoned to get up off the couch then i might consider it. But sometimes i want a good saladasaurus sandwhich - and JJ / Subway will not cut it.

whattommyeats.com

mealsandmiles.com

Publix Subs are the greatest - especially their Ultimate. While i'm picky about pickles and banana peppers on my ultimate- the combination with a fully loaded veggie just works in such delicious harmony. and they usually have a good deal for a full sub at the price of a half (i'll eat that for a day or so).

/pics aren't mine but have made me consider going to Publix for lunch today...

I noticed that none of the stores have sprouts anymore which is a total letdown. That's what made the Beach Club and the tuna salad so good. I can't say I blame them with the risk of food poisoning you always get with sprouts.

Yeah; it's kind of ironic. Like how ducks unlimited fights for every inch of wetlands. Without organizations like them; many game animals wouldn't have any place to live.

For fark sake you spent $5 on a farking sandwich. Sure it looks like crap, but hey you got your money back.

Some asshole server decided not to put effort into it, is that worth National Outrage? No.

never had an issue with JJ when i was in VA. the sammiches were always filled pretty good. i said something one time about the bread and the manager overheard. gave all four of us free meals. pretty nice. i guess they got a bad worker that day.

Sprouts have been on recall since February or January. You can get them at Asian markets if you really want to run the risk of getting listeria.

Are we talking right-wing derper as a general conservative (as in, what is normally considered a conservative, not a Republican), or are we talking balls-out extremist-masquerading-as-right-wing conservative? I truly believe that as a whole anyone who is extremely-left or extremely-right alike should be outed as what they are: extremists, since I think the vast majority of people and points of view are less crazy than the average political derp would make it seem...

Also, to the poster of the picture...*makes jerk-off motion*...Rich guy indulges in safaris that are horribly overpriced and go to fund local conservation efforts of safaris, as well as preserving a population of animals that is in balance with the land's population capacity...non-issue.
 
2012-09-10 11:42:17 AM  
To be fair, that sandwich was pretty sad...
 
2012-09-10 11:43:34 AM  
I went by JJ one time because I was in a rush. Bought a sandwich, got to the office, opened the sandwich, and there was no meat! Like at all, it was only the lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers. I called the store and told them what happened. The manager asked if it was a white kid with long hair and glasses, I said "yea", he said "Damn that's Jason, he always messes orders up. I'm really sorry." He had Jason drive to my work and deliver a new sandwich free of charge, and this was like 30 minutes away from the store. I was pretty impressed by that.

Their sandwiches are ok for delivery (while drunk or stoned), but their jalapeno chips are farking awesome and the entire reason to order their food at all.

Intrepid00: You know, I can't help but taste the hipocracy as you a consumer of animal products that results in the slaughter of millions of animals every year. Just cause he shot something you found "cute".


There is a huge difference between killing an unendangered animal for food (cows, deer, pig, turkey, chicken, etc) and killing endangered, exotic animals for fun and trophy (elephant, tiger, etc).

I didn't know that about the owner, either. I will not be going there again.

Subway use to make a black bean sub that was tasty.
 
2012-09-10 11:44:12 AM  
FTA: unless they beef up (no pun intended) their veggie subs

Nobody cares if your puns were intended.

People who point out their puns are like comedians who explain their jokes: they both think you're too stupid to get it. The only good thing about the phrase "pun intended" is that it saves you time when you want to say "hello, I'm going to be at the bag convention this weekend, please be sure to stop by and say 'hi.' I'll be at the douche exhibit." Here's the deal: when you point out your puns, you're making a value judgement on me, the reader. You're saying:

Hey reader, you see that play on words I just made? Yeah, well that wasn't an accident. In fact, I thought it was so clever that I didn't think your simple mind would be able to comprehend the brilliance of my play on words, and I wanted to make sure you know that I'm not only smart enough to use homonyms, but that I'm smart enough to point them out.

The sheer level of narcissism it takes to think that anyone gives a shiat about whether or not you meant to write your pun is mind boggling. If narcissism were measured in units of mass, the skulls of people who pointed out puns would crush in on themselves in a giant black hole of stupidity.

The other variation of calling attention to a pun is the pun denial, or "no pun intended," which is a less formal way of saying:

Dear Reader,

Please direct your attention towards my pun. Admittedly I do think it's clever, but I think that you think so highly of me, that I want you to know that I would never resort to using such a commonplace literary device in my prose. Therefore, I would like to formally renounce my attempt at humor and assure you that I am above making puns as a writer, as a pupil of language, and as citizen of Earth.

Sincerest apologies,
D. Baggerson

The phrase "no pun intended" makes me want to band saw my dick off just in case I'm the last man alive and I have to risk repopulating Earth with some moron's incapable vagina. There's no such thing as an unintentional pun; the act of typing the phrase "no pun intended" makes it intentional. If your pun truly wasn't intended, then why didn't you erase it and write something else, asshole?

I read an exchange the other day between some loser flirting with some lonely single mom on a message board for lonely single losers (not to preclude one from the other, no reason you can't be both). The guy's avatar said "IRISH 4 LIFE," and his profile stated that he's a "Dave Matthews Band" fan, so already his face is high on my list of places I would like to rest my feet (Dave Matthews fans are like the trans-fats of fandom: oversaturated with obnoxiousness, found everywhere, and impossible to get rid of; for example, they only refer to the band as DMB... you can't abbreviate the word 'band' assholes, it's a band by virtue of the fact that there is more than 1 person in it, and for the record, adding the word 'band' to your name doesn't make you any less of an egotistical shiat head). Man, you know what I hate? Dave Matthews.

It's the whitest band ever, which is saying something considering 3 of the members are black, and Dave Matthews is literally an African American (born in South Africa). His music can be heard in Whole Foods stores, Live Earth concerts, or blasting from the speakers of open-topped Jeeps parked on curbs everywhere. The typical fan is either some dude wearing khaki cargo shorts replete with dangling rock climbing hooks, even though he doesn't hike because he can't afford to drive his gas-guzzling Jeep, or some chick with huge boobs, buck teeth, and an ankle-length floral skirt that she twirls around like an idiot because she thinks her awesome boobs give her enough social capital to make up for the buck teeth and hairy toes (they don't):

So anyway, I signed up for an account so I could send this guy hate mail for being a "DMB" fan since that was enough, but what I read next made me so mad that I headbutt myself in the face.

He was trying so hard to impress this chick, that he made a pun and followed it with "(and yes, pun intended!!)" So not only did he point out his pun, but he took it a step further and answered an imaginary rhetorical question that nobody was asking. Here's how the conversation played out in his head:

IRISH4LIFE: "Fighting global warming is cool." Hmm, I wonder if people will get the subtle association between the word "cool" and the concept of "global warming," since global warming has to do with heat, and the word cool has to do with cultural attitudes and perceptions as well as how chill something is. Holy shiat, another pun! I'm on fire! HOLY shiat! Three puns in a row?! I'm so getting laid. But what if she reads it and doesn't get it? I can picture her in my head:

Lonely mom: "Wait! Did you intentionally--"

IRISH4LIFE: I'd better cut her off mid-sentence while she's thinking by adding the parenthetical: "(yes! yes, that was intentional)." You've still got it, Irish.

Ho ho ho! Laugh it up, dickwad. People who point out their puns should be put to sleep (gassed).
