Have you ever ordered food that you thought cost one price, then were made to pay another price when you got to the cashier? That happened to me the other day. I never go into Subway anymore, as I don’t like the fact that to cut prices, they cut down on the amount of meat in a sandwich. But I had my mouth set for a tuna sandwich, so I went in to a Subway.
The first thing I discovered is they don’t serve tuna sandwichs there. So I went with the old standby – their BMT. It was supposed to be $4.85, but when I got to the cashier, it was $5.65. What is that about? The sandwich was the same as always, so I guess I can’t complain too much. But it will be a long time until I go into a Subway shop again.
Silly sign of the day:
