CSB: In my misspent youth I worked at a restaurant. A big, family oriented chain in the midwest and eastern part of the US. .

Anyway, my gf at the time was doing kitchen prep on third shift and I was washing dishes. She was drinking a soda, and hit the glass on the side of the mixer and into the bowl everything went. That would have been fine, except she had just finished mixing up a batch of meatloaf (to be scooped into small, separate trays that were then put in the oven). Glass, soda, everything was just there on top.

The store manager (not first assistant, not "team leader" who was boss on third shift...the actual store manager) told her to roll out the meatloaf onto a tray, spread it out as thinly as possible, and pull out all the glass.

As you might imagine, this didn't go well. At least one sizable shard was missed. A woman ended up biting down on it a few days later. Luckily she wasn't hurt, but people were NOT happy at all.

meh -- Subway and go suck itself -- Jimmy John's is where the action is at.

Better bread, better meats, and much friendlier people working there.

The subway shops around here in Dallas/Fort Worth always seems to be stocked with what looks like freshly released convicts or gang bangers.

You'll get an extra inch added to your sammich.

That's good.

The extra inch will contain glass.

That's bad.

When I was a teenage, I did vending at the ballpark. We got out the bigsealed rack of hot dog rolls. The several of them were giant grease covered lag bolts. I'm surprised that the baking machine didnt fall apart.

Anyway we detached the rolls next to it and served them.

The moral of this story is:

Don't order the pheasant-under-glass at a Subway.

Sounds like reasonable investigation and precautions are proceeding as they should. The mom sounds like the only thing she wants is more outrage and panic.

Hurr we had to lose the inch off the sandwich because LABOR COSTS. HURR. People wanted to be paid what they're worth. Can't have that. DURR.
 
2013-01-23 12:04:32 PM  
The only thing about subway that is 'good' is their seemingly unending capacity to misunderstand the words 'a little', 'lite' 'a few' and 'just a bit'. I mean sure that sounds like a bad thing right now but they are so goddamned consistent about it that I've gone past pissed and right into impressed. Also I no longer eat there.

'a little' salt and pepper = turn the sandwich black with pepper to the point that my dog won't even eat it.
'just a bit' of mayo = give me half a bottle of the stuff
'lite' lettuce = give me a salad with soggy croutons instead of a sandwich with some crunch
'a few' hot peppers = see how many you can fit in your hand then put them all on the sub
 
2013-01-23 12:05:06 PM  
I like subway, that said their franchises are really hit and miss. A lot of it comes down to just employee carelessness and common sense. At one restaurant I was served a sub that was actually BLUE, it wasn't mold, some sort of cleaner or something had leaked onto my bread and one other loaf. Somehow the person who made my sandwich managed to miss that the entire underside of the bread was an unnatural color. I turned right back around and got a replacement sandwich.

There's a family owned hot dog eatery nearby where a lot of the waitstaff are ... well, they are cute girls, and they don't have much in the way of smarts. One of the portions of the restaurant is a bar-style area (I guess if you need to scarf hot dogs on the run). Anyway, I was sitting there, and one of the girls dropped a glass into the ice cooler. The sound made it obvious that the glass had shattered. She kept scooping ice out, though, and never stopped to pull out any portion of the glass.

FTA: The Peterborough County-City Health Unit conducted an investigation Friday and determined lettuce, from an outside source, in the sandwich was the probable source of the glass.

An inspector found that staff at the restaurant had pulled and set aside the suspect lettuce and were using another product.


uncleacid: The guy who shreds the lettuce is still looking for his glasses.


LOL.

FTFA:
"Clark said she and the doctor found seven pieces of glass in the remaining portion of the sandwich, ranging up to about half the size of Clark's pinkie fingernail. "

She used her doctor instead of her lawyer to examine the sandwich? Say goodbye to your pay out.

Was it Jess' Quick Lunch? Because even though I'm pretty sure the hot dog chili is made with dog food it's tasty. And their milk shakes are amazing. Thanks, JMU, for cute girls in yoga pants serving me a hot dog.

He's not really a farm. He'll buy his stuff from NYC or during the warmer months, some nearby farms. But the subs are awesome!

Likewise, my Subway Tales of Fail are too numerous to put down. I give credit to the occasional worker with a good attitude that does their job well and hope someone better hires them soon.
For every one of them there's also one who leaves you waiting 5-10 minutes while making two sandwiches then sits down with her kid to eat said sandwiches while she takes her break. Capacity to do work is a little too much to ask in the fast food industry.

She asked for everything then went on to ask for no "______" until all that was left was lettuce and tomato. I'm okay with the punishment.

Seriously though, if it's isolated like that I have serious doubts, I mean subway is one of the few places where you watch them through every step, so that means the entire bin of whatever product had glass so there would be more people.

My Cool Subway Story Bro

Guy was making my sandwich just fine until I asked for black pepper.
He picks up a handful of green peppers and is about to slam them on my sub until I say "Dude. I want black pepper, those are green peppers"
Then he hesitatingly picks up a handful of black olives. "No, those are black, but they are olives, I want black pepper"
He looks puzzled for a second and then grabs a handful of onions, and gives me this look like my dog does when I am teaching her a new trick and she's not sure if she's done what I wanted. "What the....those are onions. They are neither black or pepper, are you even trying? That stuff in that metal can with the holes on top. Thats what I want."

He gives the can a casual toss in the general direction of the sub and puts it back down. "No. I want to see flakes on that bastard. Just start shaking and I'll tell you when to stop". After that the sammich was properly peppered.

Cool Subway Story Bro2

I was in Kuwait coming back from Iraq. During some downtime, I discovered they had a Subway. So I walk in the trailer and they have a poster for a Pizzone sub. Some kinda of pizza ingredient contraption. So I tell the guy making the subs I wanted one of those. He starts spreading this grey crap all over the bread. It looks nothing like pizza stuff at all. I ask the guy if he is making a pizzone.
Subway guy: No pizzone. Tuna fish.
Me: What...I..I don't want tuna fish, I wanted a pizzone.
SG: No Pizzone! Tuna fish!
Me: I didn't order tuna fish, I asked for a Pizzone.
SG: NO MORE PIZZONE, YOU GET TUNA FISH!
Me: I'm not sure how things work where ever the hell you're from, but in America, you can't just arbitrarily assign sandwich flavors as you see fit. See, where I come from, the customer gets to choose what sub they want, Freedom and all that shiat. I don't want a Goddamn tuna sub, if you have no more pizzone crap, than just make it a ham and cheese.
SG: Tuna fish!
Me: I'm not paying you for a farking tunafish. I want a ham and cheese.

So SG hold the sub above his head like he is Bane holding Batman, and slams it into the trash, and finaly makes my damn sub while cussing me in whatever language he speaks. (Glad they have glass so I could monitor what went into the sub. I was watching really close)

Best part was the guy who come in behind me ordered a foot long tuna. The guy turned red.

Thank you, you veteran of foreign war for teaching one sandwich maker a lesson. Very wonderful stories, you can grab 2 internets for yourself.

Last time in Subway, the sublady joked about the 11" footlongs. My receipt did say 12" sandwich, so Subway can suck on their own defense. If not for the watch them make your sandwich glass, we would've all walked away from them years ago.
