The amount of meat and cheese doesn't change if you have an extra inch of bread. A bit more bread isn't really that important to the overall sandwich.

Subway needs to introduce free inch-long subs for those who have been wronged.

In the end, even though it doesn't change the sandwich they have been falsely advertising.

The sandwich is a foot long, its just that the bread part of the sandwich isn't.
The meat/cheese/whatever extends past the length of the bread.


Screw this, I'm gonna measure the next large pizza I get.
If they advertise the large pizza as being 18 inches in diameter, but its only 17.5, I'm gonna call an attorney.

That can fall within the Standard deviation. Problem here is that the average length of subway sandwiches is significantly different from a foot long. That is misadvertisement.

You can make 11 inch subs if you want, you just can't advertise and name them based solely on the fact that they measure 12 inches.

See, here's the problem. This is all true, and it IS false advertising, BUT if you just take a step back, it's all rather ridiculous.

I mean, imagine telling a group of starved African people (for example) that a food company is being sued for lots of money because their 12-inch sandwiches occasionally measure a puny 11-inches.

It just seems at times that so many people are detached from reality and it's crazy.

So if Subway replaced the beef in your sub with dog meat you'd be fine with it? I mean starving orphans wouldn't complain about eating dog meat.

If you're paying for a product then you should receive said product. Dying Africans doesn't come into it.

This is such a terrible argument. Just because africans dont have food But do get aids, those Lucky bastards, doesnt mean that these people cant get justice. 5m is totally ridiculous. A better punishment would be to increase the sandwiches or change the ads (+ the money that the time and process had cost-

No matter how ridiculous it is, it actually is a pretty slam dunk case if you think about it. I am paying for 12 inches, not 11. And tbh, it does annoy me a little that.

You're not reading me right, or I'm not explaining myself well enough. I agree that they need measures in place for consistent 12-inch sandwiches if people are shitting the bed over it, especially if that's what's being advertised. Yes, they need to address this issue. I agree with the lawsuits in this case.

I was simply saying that the whole thing is totally ridiculous. Sandwiches are a bit too short. Is there nothing just a little crazy with that sentence? In the grand scheme of things, it's not a major issue.
