I Used to Work in Food Service, So It's Kind Of Okay

I just emailed this to Subway, Inc.

Dear Subway Powers-That-Be,
I am sure that with 28,582 restaurants in 85 countries, you are very busy in trying to monitor all of them. However, I feel it necessary to bring to your attention THE WORST SUBWAY IN AMERICA. Located on a busy urban street, sandwiched (pun very much intended) between two major universities (The University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie-Mellon University), this Subway location is in need of a serious course in management. In the two years that I have worked in an office on the next block, I have (foolishly) visited this restaurant countless times. I can assure you that I have never, ever seen the same employee there twice. I'm not sure if management is issuing beatings or what, but something is not right there.
Anyway, have you ever had a sandwich made by an employee on their first day of work? And it's not very good and you're like, "Well, it's their first day, can't blame 'em"? That's what every visit to the Craig Street Subway is like. A Quiznos recently opened on our block. I don't want to have to go there because I hate that it's called Quiznos Sub and not Quiznos Subs. Don't worry, I'll email them too.
Okay, now I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "This is obviously NOT the worst Subway in America," but seriously, I had a veggie-on-wheat in a gas station in The Middle of Nowhere, Virginia that beat the pants off any veggie-on-wheat I have ever had at Craig Street, the worst Subway in America. Thus, I feel that I am correct in naming it as such. I've never been to a Subway in Europe, but if I ever make it there, 10 bucks says it's better than Craig Street.

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! I thought I was the only one who wondered why she had to explainw what goes on the Western breakfast sandwich *to the employees* every single time she's in there.

I read this aloud to my mother, she almost peed her pants.
And, I've been to a Subway in Germany, and it was pretty good for being a foreign Subway. And I threw up a Subway sandwich in February, fyi.
You are so funny.
