mraudacia: first off, the doh comes frozen off a truck, and like all franchys, everything is done exactly the same way, the doh rises for the exact same amount of time, and in the exact same pans/ little net doh rising thingy.

lastly, this isnt news. every time i go to subway they give me a hard time about adding toppings, I even had some random guy try to tell me he couldnt put any more pickles or olives on my sandwhich. he then tried to lie and said he would get into trouble, (you know, typical childish stuff when you catch someone in a lie).

and, its not just at that subway that, that happened.

you see, when you import work from india and give them a 30k to re train them for whatever trade they claim to be bringing here to canada, what they usually do with that money, is pool it together (because the whole damn family comes here) and buy something like a max store, or a subway, and if theres a lot of them, a wendys or something. then, because there so over populated and incredibly competative and deceitfull, they usually cut corners, skim off the top, screw there employees around for pay, treat them bad. etc.

now before you fark lot call me a racist i want to remind you that in india they will hate on you for being just one shade to dark, and typically the darker you are the poorer and worse your treated.

i know a few good east indians, but every one ive ever worked for, or whoever attained a position of power in a company here in canada, was a complete racist, and took advantage of everything they could, at every opportunity.

five alive yoh.


You should have gave them "blankets" like we did here in America. Silly Canadians and your poutine and Justin Beiber.

Oysterman: The Angry Hand of God: From Dictionary.com:


foot·long
[foot-lawng, -long] Show IPA
adjective
1.
approximately one foot in length: Their specialty is footlong hotdogs.
noun
2.
something that is approximately one foot in length.


Anyone who is complaining has never looked up the definition of the actual word.

Their 6-inch subs are actually 5.5 inches. Resume outrage.

...Unless you need to feel better than everyone else by saying that 6 inches doesn't have to be 6 inches too.


I have your wife for that.

NightOwl2255: bratchaman: I seriously weep for the human race here in the US.

FTA: The controversy began earlier this week when an Australian man posted a photo on the company's Facebook page of his footlong sub alongside a measuring tape that read 11 inches...

Yep, it's all Americans fault.


By "the US", I meant all of US here in Australia.

People, people, I have to tell you something. I'm fuming mad. Seriously, I'm peeved. I went to Chick-fil-a today and ordered a #1 value-sized, because I've got to have large fries, all the time. That's not important. What is important is that they are supposed to put on slice of pickle on the sandwich. It's so enshrined in their corporate philosophy that the sticker for the sandwiches that have no pickle actually say "NO PICKLE". So I opened up my sandwich after I bought it to count the single solitary pickle but was left aghast by what was on the sandwich. Not one, not none, not even two, but THREE. THREE WHOLE SLICES of pickle! It was disgusting. Never before have I been so humiliated as I was at lunch today. I didn't even have the stomach to complain to the manager.

I understand how their can be some variation in length, but I'm still wondering what in the fark 'splodgilicious' is. I mean, I have some idea it involves sploodge, but how it gets in the meatball sandwich I don't want to know.

"I always thought I was always getting 12" subs ... I do smell a lawsuit," she said.

Some customers vowed to never eat at the restaurant again.

"I will NEVER buy anything from Subway now. Ever," posted Marius Andre Stensaker.

See here's the trick, you tell them an inch shorter, that way when they do find out they're pleasantly surprised and you get the "You're bigger than I thought!" compliment.

The trick is finding the ones ok with a 3 incher to begin with...

Because as we all know, what you're paying for when you eat at Subway, is that marvelous bread they make.  That stuff is like manna.  Sometimes I'll walk into Subway, order a footlong on "italian" bread, then tell them to hold ALL the toppings.  No, not just the veg, ALL of 'em!  Meat, cheese, condiments...EVERYTHING.  Just give me that god-damned bread, sliced down the middle, and NO I DON'T want it toasted!  Baking it once was ENOUGH!

I sit down with my God-Bread, take a sip of my Fanta, and kiss the sky.

Now I know they've been cheating me of my rightful inch.  Beatings will begin tomorrow PROMPTLY at NOON.

Come on people. This far in and not a single word about Subway flat out lying to their COSTUMERS. Why are they lying to the wardrobe dept?

We already do.  Makes 'em sound bigger.

Same reason I measure my penis in millimeters.  Much more impressive.

I felt bad watching undercover boss, an 18 year old kid run a subway restaurant really efficiently, when the CEO showed up, he was slow, terrible, and had the attitude of 'oh well it can wait' talking to people in line and stuff when they clearly just wanted to exchange money for a sub and get out as quickly as possible. The numbnuts even locked himself in the freezer. Kid was twice the worker this man is yet will never see 1/1,000th of the pay check. Sad sad economic system we have.

Believe it or not, the guy wasn't lying. Subway considers pickles and olives a garnish, not a topping, and they're only supposed to add so many per sandwich, I forget how many it is, like 2 or 3 per 6 inch. Now most places don't adhere to this rule because it's just damn stupid, you usually only have a problem if you go to one of their company owned restaurants versus a franchise.

No. fark you and your lawsuit inside and out with a rusty dildo coated in needles from dirty syringes. You're what's farking wrong with everything; why we can't have nice things.

So you're on the record as a Subway bread-lover. We'll be sending over a therapist within the week.

Dear Subway Sandwich,

it has come to my attention that you are not 1.
a. An underground urban railroad, usually operated by electricity.
b. A passage for such a railroad.
2. An underground tunnel or passage, as for a water main or for pedestrians.

accordingly, you can expect to see my complaint in an upcoming issue of The Consumerist...

ski9600: That's just carpenter math at work. Or you could say lumber manufacturer math.

//a 2" x 4" is actually: 1 1/2 in × 3 1/2 in (38 mm × 89 mm)
/either way, it's reduced size for the same price


If you buy a rough 2x4 you get 2" x 4". Finished lumber has 1/4" from each of the four sides by a planer. It isn't a marketing scam, just that nobody seems to want rough lumber

To be fair, if that kid ever had to do the work of a CEO, he'd probably end up getting locked in the Hookerarium or talk too much to the coke dealer.
 
2013-01-17 09:58:21 PM
It doesn't matter which car you get into on the Subway, they all go to the same place.
 
2013-01-17 10:00:46 PM
I'm amazed nobody else has brought this up.

No matter the length, you're paying a lot of money for mediocre food. Prices have gone up; a 'decent' sandwich that's not under their specials is $7+.

This is everywhere, this quiet elevation of cost. McDonalds also now will cost you $8+ for a single meal, unless you're going for the buck menu.
 
2013-01-17 10:01:06 PM
The only thing I eat there is A meatball sammich.No sauce.Black olives and jalapenos.

So someone from a country that uses the metric system is complaining that his sub isn't 12 inches?

You don't get a foot, because you don't have a foot!
 
2013-01-17 10:08:46 PM
Doesn't matter which sub you get at Subway, unless it's a 6-inch flatbread with ham and salami (hold the cheese), with spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, sweet peppers and southwest sauce. Then it tastes AWESOME.
 
2013-01-17 10:10:42 PM
EVERY meat at Subway is made from turkey, except the roast beef. Don't want to know what that is made of.
 
2013-01-17 10:11:40 PM
Cue the bread with stupid, FARKing stretched-out pointy ends that end up 14" long just to shut everyone the FARK up.
