Subway not giving foot-long subs.

http://news.msn.com/pop-culture/inv...way?ocid=msnnws

Trickery is afoot in the sandwich biz.

According to an undercover investigation conducted by the New York Post, Subway—the beloved American fast food chain—is bilking customers by providing shorter sandwiches than it advertises.

Following up on a tip from a muckraking Australian diner, the Post found that four of the seven supposedly "Footlong" sandwiches it ordered in various New York City Subways clocked in at 11 or 11.5 inches.


Discuss.

i knew something funny was going on at that sandwich shop. they all said i was crazy. i never did a crazy thing in my life before that night. why is it, when you kill a man in the heat of battle, its called murder, yet, when you kill a man in the heat of passion, its called murder?

The day I complain about losing 0.5 inches off a sub is the day you can blow my brains out.

Sure, but still.. I mean, they're advertising 12" of carbs, fake meat, wilted veggies, and weak sauces sub, they should be giving a full 12". It's unscrupulous.

I measured a sandwich I got from subway once because I always thought they were a bit bigger then a ruler. Sure enough it was just over 13 inches. Maybe we're stealing those new yorkers extra inch

don't care i just wish jimmy johns had more options like subway does.

plus, every other subway is absolutely gross. there are 2 in my town, and one of them is great. you can see the bread baking, the veggies are always fresh, etc. the other one is disgusting.. veggies have always been sitting out for a while, everything's kinda stale and blech.

There's quite a few here, the one by my house is great but a few of them are shit. There's one downtown which closes at either 10 or 11 pm which makes no sense because the others are open til midnight, you'd think it'd be the other way around.. but they keep their cold top refrigerator on way too high (or low, I guess), and the veggies are so cold when you bite into them they hurt your teeth and are really crunchy.

yeah, they've got real consistency issues with the franchisees. which is weird, considering they're the largest chain in the WORLD.

Yeah I have a brain and have a pretty good idea of what I'm getting so this really doesn't matter to me.

If you go to one subway fairly regularly and always get shitty subs (same staff), the best thing you can do is order a double meatball sub on flatbread and laugh as the staff loses all hope in life trying to keep the sub together.

I need to try a Jimmy John's. I had it once, but I was blacked out drunk, and don't remember.

a whole inch missing off their sandwiches though? for shame. someone out there really got shafted when they only got 11 inches when they really wanted 12.

I really don't care about an inch of subway sandwich, but f'real doe, you're advertising certain specs, and your product doesn't meet those specs. That's cheap, my dude. Cheap.

I clicked on the cannibal sandwiches on Bing's homepage, and was much more interested in this than people getting E-Coli from raw hamburger.


I'm sorry.

yeah i do this type of shit when i get someone who's being a huge dick. double meatball, tons of veggies, and like 4 different kinds of sauce. when they fail miserably because the bread rips open and is just too soggy, say, "sorry, i have to go to class, you're taking too long"

i did this at qdoba once a week for a whole month when my ex-gf worked there. not the most mature thing to do, but damn was it cathartic
