Josh’s Subway doesn’t take too kindly to those who bring their own cups to fill up at its freestanding soda fountain. It also isn’t to keen on those who keep cardboard Subway cups as refillable souvenirs to be used day after day.
There are those who hate their jobs and those who love to hate their jobs. Chris says he is a Subway sandwich maker who falls into the latter category, putting in extra work to make your sandwich suboptimal. He eats your pain with relish. Here’s what he does to your sandwich:
A former employee at a Subway in Nova Scotia claims that she was shown the door by her employer after she attempted to use her free daily sub to feed a pair of neighbors who had been put out of their homes by a fire.
It’s great that everyone’s concerned about keeping kids healthy and all, but Jay says the woman working at his local Subway put her foot down on his request for a meatball sandwich for his kid. He says she told him, “You can get ham or turkey but no meatball.” Kids don’t need meatballs!

Patrons of a Chicago area subway got an extra topping with their $5 dollar footlongs — potentially lethal bacteria, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Justin sent us this gamepiece he scraped like a wet scab off the side of his moist Subway beverage cup. (I do not like gamepieces affixed to fast food drinks.)
