Subway to be sued over an inch of bread
Remember us writing about a man complaining about his Subway 'footlong' being an inch short? Well, things are about to enter a new stage of exasperating uselessness as two men are suing Subway for an inch of bread.
They claim that they are frequently selling footlong sandwiches that are slightly too short.
Subway issued a statement about the previous complaint, saying that sandwich length can vary when food is not baked in the exact correct way. Of course, sandwiches can shrink too, if you leave them out to go cold while you take photographs of them.
Either way, the two men from New Jersey have filed a lawsuit through lawyer, Stephen DeNittis. He says: "The case is about holding companies to deliver what they've promised," and is seeking compensation for damages, as well as wanting Subway to change their practices.
Of course, it has occurred to no-one that people irritated at Subway butties could actually take their item back to the counter and say 'I've just measured this sandwich and it wasn't a footlong... when you've stopped laughing at me, could I please have one that is twelve inches long?' rather than all this weak-wristed nonsense.
