    The real idiots are the ones that say nothing, like the good little sheep companies like this want you to be, you obviously work for Subway. I can't seriously understand why people still argue when the proof has been undeniable, go buy one and see for yourself, before you run your corroded tongues.

    HOOKED ON DIABLOL, GOOD TIMES ARE BEING HAD

    Quiznos has the little board where they measure the bread against when they cut it, so they probably don't have these issues.

    I don't really care for Quiznos though, the flavors of stuff just aren't to my taste.

    Subway used to be great. 20 years ago when my friend worked there, the bread was fluffy, the toppings great. The meat was never a lot, but seemed better. Now? Bread is cardboard, meat is flavorless and they are very light on toppings. Better by far is Publix (a full grocery store with a deli) subs, which are great and the bread is much better. There's a subway near where I work, and I'll get stuff there sometimes when I forget to make something to bring with me, but it's not enjoyable.

Bread is amongst the worst, except when rolled out to a base (such as for Pizza) where it'll typically only rise as opposed to spreading outwards.


    A royale with cheese. What d'they call a Whopper?
    They could bake every roll so that they are approximately 14 inches and then cut off the ends to make it exactly 12 inches after it is cooked, which is what they SHOULD do. Either that or change the name of the sub to large and small. Selling anything else at a size or weight less than advertised is illegal.

    Then you're still going to get short ones, unless you want them to actually measure each one they make and cut.

    That, and that's a waste of a lot of food by the end of it.

    They already charge more and useless meat and cheese. Why not short people on bread too? Not that i really care, I think it's pretty funny. I have got the same sub for years whenever I do go, A Subway Melt with provolone cheese, sub roast beef for the ham, toast it, lettuce, tomatoes, slt, pepper, and a smidge of mayo.

    He said "french menu" not "france", that's a difference, especially after quoting a post written by a Swiss!
    (now I'm kinda insulted that they don't have a romansh menu, but I guess, doesn't makes any sense, damn!)

    Part of my job I work in a deli, our bread arrives frozen and we defrost and then cook it. I happen to be good at cooking bread...but there's really no guarantee to these things that they'll all have the same length, softness, width or anything else.

    The bread will rise more or less depending on atmospheric pressure.

    It will still be the exact same mass of bread whether it ends up measuring 11, 12 or 13 inches.

    If you like super processed "meat" products, then Subway is for you. Me, I like to go to places that serve meats that were not a slurry at one time.

    It is like calling Kraft singles real cheese.
    Isnt pink slime everywhere? Unless you grow your own fruit and veg, and kill your own cows, youre probably eating food thats been processed somewhat. On topic, being cautious of my budget, Id be mad if I was getting short changed.

    Or maybe people shouldn't have such high expectations for fast food. Reasonable people aren't going to give a shit if their footlong isn't exactly 12 inches. No one pulls out a fucking ruler and measures the damn sandwich and its ridiculous to expect Subway to do so.

    As long as its not obviously too short/long, I couldn't give a damn.

    That's how the real world is. I always thought when I was getting a 1TB or 500GB hard drive that I was getting the full amount. Nope. 500GB = 465GB and 1TB = 931GB.

    Also like gas, if you thought you were getting let's say 2.99 because that's what it is currently here. You're actually getting exactly 3.00 because it's 2.99 9/10.

    Even though the gas one you think you're getting less but it's actually a little more. Same thing with buying items for 19.99. Some people think it's really 19.99 and never think about the 7% tax added to that.

    Oh no one inch... People are honestly annoying sometimes. Out of every loaf that's baked in every subway every day, how many come up short or above by and inch or so?
    Likely thousands, but if your spending five to ten pounds (not sure on prices in other countries) on a sandwich that is only worth half that, you can spare the inch since you're wasting money anyway (Saying that I frequently get subs :P ).

    Except in this case, it isn't subway deliberately screwing you, or in the case of the hard drive/flash drive, a technical error.

    It's just a variation in length that occurs when bread is baked and there's little to nothing that Subway can do to avoid it, nor is it significant enough to do anything about anyways.
