Elzar: Dear fatties,Go be fat somewhere else...Sincerely,Subway Management and the rest of us who don't like seeing/smelling your fat fugly asses.
Jackson Herring: vudutek: you're taking this far too seriouslyhah it is pretty amazing that you have the lack of self-awareness to actually type that sentence
Jackson Herring: vudutek: Jackson Herring: this is literally the saddest thing I have ever seen anyone up in arms aboutyeah, false advertising, who cares, right?do you cry irl when you order a six inch and the bread isn't cut in the exact centroid of the loaf
Jackson Herring: this is literally the saddest thing I have ever seen anyone up in arms about
had98c: Subway is 100% correct here. It's a trademarked name, not a description of the sandwich.

vudutek: Jackson Herring:I am sure you are going to miss that extra quarter inch in each of your two mealsWould you be ok getting shorted 4% of every gallon of gas you buy? If they decided 'gallon' was just a marketing term? And didn't bother to tell anyone? The point isn't the .5" itself, it's the b.s. marketing crap they're trying to hide behind.
Jackson Herring: Anyway, the reason the length of the sandwich literally does not matter is this: Every piece of subway bread is the same weight before being proofed and cooked, and the meat and veggie portions are standardized. You get your six pieces of turkey and whatever weight of bread regardless if it is 11" or it was stretched a little bit more before proofing and it is 13".
justtray: The marketing campaign argument is actually pretty compelling.
HumanBeingsSuck: bmihura: Seriously, their food is good with me as isThat's too bad. Depending on where you live in the Austin area, you have the choice of a bunch of places that actually serve delicious sammiches. Your being ok with Subway means your credibility is diminished.
gunga galunga: Now that I know the truth, I realize that I did not so much eat those footlongs as I was buttfarked by them.
Apik0r0s: Kanabiis: Apik0r0s: lennavan: Apik0r0s: I'm sure everybody defending this practice would be happy getting 8% less of anything else they buy, like gas.I think it's a teenie easier to measure a gallon accurately every time than it is to bake bread to exactly 12 inches every time.But baking bread to exactly 11 inches is apparently possible.Subway is deceptive about some of their meats as well, are they not? Don't you have to really read the fine print there to see that they make a bunch of their meats out of turkey?How cute... apparently you also fail to realize what franchise means....Every Subway restaurant is individually owned and operated... Subway the corporation has little to nothing to do with the sandwich you buy....The subway footlong I ate today was 13 inches long... you know what I DIDN'T do, make a stupid Facebook post about it.Subway franchisees HAVE to buy ALL of their ingredients from the mothership.
A Terrible Human: Holy shiat is this thread angry over an inch of a sandwich. False advertising
gilgigamesh: Mugato: Is it a unit of time, like a parsec?You know damn well that the parsec is only a unit of time for ships making the Kessel Run.
The Man Who Laughs: It's still the same amount of bread. That bit about the proofing process is correct; proofing is what you call the process of the dough expanding before you cook it, and variations in ingredients, temperature and humidity have an effect on that. Knowing that, Subway restaurants use a scale to weigh and portion out a certain amount of dough that is to become a loaf of bread. Regardless of how much the dough proofs, you're still getting the same amount of material by weight. Same applies to toppings; they're all pre-weighed, and you still get the same number of cheese slices and whatever else. Complaining that an 11 inch Subway sub isn't going to be as much food as a 12 inch Subway sub is just dumb.
