Re: Subway sandwich chain sued over 11-inch "Footlongs"

This is what they call bait and switch, right? Fat people sue over getting fat by stuffing their faces with McDonald's, but never get pissy about the sloppy burgers they get instead of the perfect ones they see on TV. Why the hell is this even an issue now? People have been getting screwed for many, many years, stop eating fast food and make shit yourself, ya lazy bastards!

If anything that would be a plus

Re: Subway sandwich chain sued over 11-inch "Footlongs"

It may be a pretty damn ridiculous lawsuit, but if you put it in it's simplest form, Subway is advertising something as one thing, and providing something else--no matter how miniscule the discrepancy, there is a discrepancy.

It's not even a matter of "lazy," "fat" people or "having nothing better to do." If you pay for something with the belief that it's one thing and you receive something less, try and tell me that you wouldn't be upset. This should put more pressure on these companies to not be able to take advantage of consumers (or have low standards) with the belief that something isn't "important" enough to raise objections over. If I think I'm putting five gallons of gas into my car and in reality I'm getting 4.7 gallons, or they advertise a price of $3.40/gallon and I'm being charged $3.45/gallon, objections should be raised.

Yes, it's a fucking sandwich from Subway, but that's hardly the point.

that doesnt give you a reason to SUE THE COMPANY. File a complaint with their corporate office...do it a hundred fucking times if you have to. But in today's litigious society, everyone has a court case against someone else. It's ridiculous.

So I guess this lawsuit means that size does matter? I never knew that.

Re: Subway sandwich chain sued over 11-inch "Footlongs"

I don't know if it's different in America or anything, but over here, when you go into a Subway outlet, you can literally see the bread and watch them make the sandwich. So it's not like you're buying the footlong sandwich sight unseen. So to me, it's irrelevent whether the sandwich is 10 inches, 11 inches or 12 inches. It's a big fucking sandwich either way. And you can see how big it is before you buy it. If you look at it and think 'well thats too small', then don't buy the sandwich. Don't buy it, measure it, and then sue the company because its an inch too short, that's ridiculous.

Here you can see the bread baking too. And honestly, you're still getting the same amount of meat on the sub, so if the bread is short by a little, shouldn't people be happy that they're accidentally eating less carbs?


Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.

Re: Subway sandwich chain sued over 11-inch "Footlongs"

If this happened in my country, people won't give a damn anyway since we're so used to deceptive marketing (it's apparently legal here too). As long as food is cheap and affordable, we are happy about it; don't need to be nit-picky. Quite sad since companies often take advantage of lower classes around here.

Also, nobody eats Subway here. Let alone, bread since our culture dismisses that it doesn't complete a meal. No rice, no sell.

Maybe they were measuring with their own feet.
