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.
