Why? Why would anyone eat one of those let alone 4?
It's some kind of occasional zoobie insanity, like the Vulcan pon far (or however you spell it).

Ah...I suspected that it had to do with some type of intermittent insanity.... :smile:

What would you prefer they do instead?
I'd prefer if I could just tell them what I want on the sandwich, and then they can assume that no, I do not want anything I did not explicitly ask for. At all the Subways I've been to it's like this compulsory process that you have to go through their automated sandwich making flow chart. Just make me ham and swiss with lettuce tomato and mayo and stop asking me questions damnit! And when I say ham, I mean more than two slices!

I don't know why I have that special animosity for Subway. I guess it's a combination of the facts that I like my sandwiches, I probably went in expecting a halfway decent sandwich each time, and most of all, it's not that hard to make a good sandwich! I mean, pizza chains like Dominos are just as bad if not worse, but at least they make a product that I don't know how to make, and if I did it would take me more than two minutes.

Plus you have to go through that whole process of telling the person what to do at every conceivable decision point in the making of a sandwich, that's so aggravating.
There's a place here called The Coffee Bean. For a while there you had to submit to an inquisition before you could get any coffee:

"Would you like anything to eat with that? Room for cream? For here or to go? Would you like to buy one of our gift certificates? Do you have one of our frequent user cards? Could I get one started for you? Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the communist party?"

That almost goes without saying. You're insane if you eat them, and eating them makes you insane. You may remember "The Twinkie Insanity Defense" in San Francisco 20 years ago, or so.

That's a shame. I wouldn't have let that happen at my store. My store was the best - and fastest - in the world (or county, at least)! :biggrin: The regulars shouldn't even have to tell you what they want. Sheesh. It shouldn't take more than 60 seconds to make a sandwich, but I've gone in other Subways that take 5 minutes or more to make a single sandwich. :rolleyes: That's just bad management.
But I know what you mean about the meat - and unless they're using a different kind of ham, a ham sandwich gets 8 slices (the manager doesn't normally decide those things). When I used to eat meat, I went to Publix (the grocery store). I think they're only in the Southeast, but if you have one in the area and their Deli has a sub shop, they're great.

I had taco's for dinner today. Which, like everything else they scam you on these days, PISSED ME OFF!

The taco's I got... Were about as big as the palm of my hand. They're pathetic. I had to eat like 6 just to stop my stomach grumbling. I mean, it wouldn't be so bad if the box they came in wasn't closer to the width of my monitor... but it was. If the box is 12 inches tall, the TACO'S should be 12 inches tall too damnit! Not five!*

*I don't actually know how big an inch is...

1 inch = 2.54 centimeters. (I don't know if that's exact though.)

2.540005 if we do 1/.3937. So 2.54 is very good.

No...According to Young and Freedman's University Physics, one inch is defined to be exactly 2.54 cm...

Yeah so it was about 4, 4 and a half of those wide. Freakishly small. Damn capitalists.
