A Subway restaurant worker says she was so sick that she was vomiting, but was ordered to keep on working and serving people food.
This goes to show how much food service workers are treated like sub humans these days. It’s disgusting and something needs to be done about it. 15 years ago when employees were more aware of their rights as workers this would never fly because people were much less afraid to stick up for themselves. If this happened to me when I still worked at Subway and the manager tried to force me to stay, I would have given her the finger and just walked out and drove myself home while making a phone call to the Labor board after I felt better.
OMG, I used to be a sandwich slave too- I totally understand. One time, we had two SUVs pull up five minutes before closing. Twelve people came in, from grandma to the baby, and I cannot put into words how furious I was....! Twelve sandwiches in record time.
I got PTSD chills just reading this. Knowing how Subway customers usually are I’m almost 100% positive they knew it was nearly closing time but didn’t care. I’m honestly not sure if I would have been able to hold it together because I used to get absolutely furious when clock beaters showed up, especially since I always had all of my closing duties done ahead of time so all I needed to do was run the end of day program on the computer and get the fuck out.
Just picked up a pair of these online. Dick’s Sporting Goods was the only place that still had my size in stock.
My Baja, named “Killer B”.
Wow! I had no idea these were real! When I saw an image of one on Google I thought it was a concept design for a modern Baja but these are actual vehicles called the Fiat Strada. Sadly not released in the US but they look almost exactly like a more up to date version of the Baja. Really digging the looks of these and I’m a die hard Baja fan. Would’ve loved to have these available in the US. Much nicer than the ugly, bloated Chevy Avalanche or the Honda Ridgeline.
Another story from my days at Subway. Right in the middle of a horrible afternoon rush a guy orders a meatball sub and wanted 18 pieces of cheese on it. Not 16, not 17, but 18. I asked if he was serious and he says “yep”. I told my co-worker who was on ring up duty to just “go to town” on the double cheese button.
I also feel very bad for the people still in Subway who have to deal with that “Flatizza” bullshit. There was a lot of annoying shit in my day such as that turkey bacon avocado but Flatizzas sound way worse. All of the annoying qualities of the pizzas and the sandwiches rolled into one abomination.
out of curiousity, what does the "pickles and olives anonymous" thing mean? did some people ask for nothing but piles of pickles and olives on their sandwiches?
Pickles and Olives Anonymous is an inside joke between another Subway worker on the internet and I. He coined the term and it describes people who want obnoxious amounts of pickles or olives as those two veggie types seem to be the ones that customers will go ape shit over if they think they have been shorted.
