Subway pinched on an inch
The Kansas City Star
Who pulls out a scale and weighs a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder? Probably no one.
Yet, Subway got pinched on weights and measures by an Australian man who posted a picture on the company’s Facebook page showing he had been shorted on the famous footlong sandwich.
A tape measure indicated that the sandwich was just 11 inches long instead of 12 inches. More than 100,000 people “liked” or commented on the picture.
TV networks worldwide also have carried the piece. Chances are, though, that they will keep buying and eating the Subway footlong meal at the fast-food chain’s 37,000 locations.
