No way, Subway

Today, I grabbed a sandwich from Subway for lunch since I was rushing and didn’t have time to make a sandwich at home. I tried to look past the lack of honey oat bread (how can they never have it every time I go in?) and the fact that I got a sprinkle of lettuce when I asked for *extra* lettuce and made it through the line to pay. I handed the cashier a $20 bill for my $5 sandwich.

“Do you want your change?” she asked.

What? I didn’t even know what to say. Who tips at fast food restaurants, and who *asks* something like that at a fast food joint? I just gave her an incredulous look and said, “Of *course* I want my change.”

She sighed and said, “Fine.”

That Subway will definitely be added to my list of restaurants to avoid. There sure won’t be many left to dine at now!

    We have been lucky here. I remember getting a double debit from the one in Alexandria, once. I didn’t go to that one again. I cannot believe she wanted a tip! I usually throw the coin change in a jar if they have one. Wow.

    Subway is supposed to make your sandwich the way you want it! It’s not like it’s something extra they are doing….I mean you didn’t like ask them to go bake some special bread or anything – that really ticks me off too….

  6. Thank you for every other informative web site. The place else may I get that kind of info written in such an ideal way? I have a challenge that I am just now working on, and I’ve been at the look out for such info.
