Don’t be one of those jerks who shows up at Subway during peak-lunch-hours to order a dozen complicated combos for your co-workers that are diligently staying at their desks. Yes, you may think you are being noble by venturing out of your office in the pursuit of tasty rations to nourish your colleagues….but NO! Instead you are the a-hole holding up the line as you try to figure out if Jenny from accounting requested low-fat mayo or if Bob from HR insisted his bread be toasted.
In general, the simple rule should be one sandwich ordered per person (unless you are a fat-ass and need 24 inches of doughy bread, processed cheese , limp cold-cuts and gloppy mayo to fill yourself up).
It is one thing to order an additional meal or two for your closest of office-buddies. But when a single person in line starts to get to ordering sandwich five , then the line has been crossed and they have gone too far. At this point, the sandwich-starved customers eagerly waiting for their chance to order, all have the right to begin aggressively grumbling and flinging descriptive threats.
Well, I will admit. I was one of those jackasses just the other day. I know I definitely crossed the line by ordering one too many 6″ subs, when I realized the crowd behind me had turned into a maddened mob. I cautiously glanced back and noticed that I was about to get my head cracked open by the pissed-off construction worker standing next to me. I avoided eye contact with the protesting patrons behind me, and hoped the “sandwich-artist” would work even faster.
I learned my lesson and so should you; DON’T cross the line.
