Lunchtime!

I need to go grocery shopping really bad, however it is something that I despise doing, so I procrastinate it like crazy. I ran out of stuff to bring with me for lunch so that means I have to go out for lunch. Today was a day where I was on my own for lunch. This sucks because I usually rely on my co-workers to decide on where we go for lunch, I'm much too indecisive. When left to my own resources, I usually just go to the Subway or the Wendy's which are just down the street.

Today it was subway. I have just a few comments about my trip there.

First off, having worked at Subway, I know that the floors are dirty enough that you shouldn't be allowing your child to be prancing around barefoot in there. Wait, no, you should probably never let your child be barefoot in pretty much any public place. I'm not child care expert and I have no children of my own, but I'm pretty sure this should be common sense.

When I got to the front of the line, there was a sign saying that they're not serving tomatoes due to some warning about salmonella. I hadn't heard anything about this and ate a raw tomato Saturday, so I googled it to find out more. I was pretty disappointed, because I LOVE tomatoes, but I guess its good that they're trying to protect the consumers.

Cute Subway guy that has worked there for as long as I've been going there (2.5 years) got brave and started up the most in-depth conversation we've had so far. He's so nice and probably the best sandwich artist there. I wish that he could make my sandwiches all the time, from start to finish. I also wish that I knew his name...

Next, I have a request for all Sandwich Artists. Please, for the love all things good, be a good S.A. and follow the sandwich making rules. It drives me absolutely crazy when I ask for pickles or peppers, you pile a huge handful on the sandwich, but when I ask for extra lettuce and tomatoes you act all stingy with them. Furthermore, the vegetables do not belong in the hinge of the bread, pick a side! Also, do you like to eat stems and cores? I know I don't, so quit being lame and leave them off my sandwich!

Yikes, I started getting a little heated there at the end. I think I will go cool off now!

Oh my stars this is funny. I, too, appreciate a good S.A. I'd never thought about it before, but now that you mention it...you're right. They ARE very stingy with some of the veggies.

Aw, thanks Heather! When I write, I'm not thinking about or trying to be funny so its always a pleasant surprise when someone finds it funny. :)

Thanks for the tip on Sparkpeople.com I actually went there a week ago and checked it out. Maybe I should look into more...

Oh and I saw that same memo on the drivethru window at McDonalds

I had the same thing about the tomatos at mcdonalds. I guess they recalled tomatos everywere. That sucks because I also love tomatos.

I didn't know you were such a subway finatic! Wow! Haha

I once worked at Subway, too. I've been unable to eat mass-produced tuna salad since.

Also, I saw two little girls going to the bathroom together and one of them put her hands all over the floor while she was on the toilet and then, presumably, wiped herself with the same hands. WTF is wrong with people that they do not teach their children how to be sanitary?

"sandwich artist" funny!
speaking of: a really bad sandwich artist made the worst sani ever yesterday - it wasnt even worth the space in my belly...

just ask your local sandwich artist that you like so much his name...

@ Mike - I just know how things should be done around Subway.

@ alicatstrut - Yes, I've long said that there should be some sort of test that needs to be passed in order to become a parent. I had to take a test in order to legally operate my vehicle, but I don't need anyone's permission to care for and shape another human life. I think there is something wrong with this picture.

@ Danfodio - Sandwich Artist is actually an official job title at a subway. I had to take a test to move from Apprentice Sandwich Artist to a Sandwich artist when I worked at Subway.
