View Full Version : Picky Lady at Subway

Before anyone says anything, yes, I understand that Subway is even more "Have it your way" than BK is. I understand that having the sub made for you exactly the way you want it right in front of you is the nature of Subway. But this woman took it way too far.

This woman was like, half hippie and half soccer mom (can you imagine?). She had her two preteen daughters with her, but surprisingly, her daughters behaved more maturely than she did. They never even said a word.

Hippie/Soccer mom lady did all the ordering for the subs. The ones for her daughters were relatively plain and simple. Then it came to HER sub.........she wanted the seafood sub with only ONE piece of American cheese (she called it "the white cheese"), because "You guys just put WAYYYY too much cheese on there!" and she wanted the cheese on the BOTTOM, because it made the rest of her sandwich gush (????).

Then with the seafood and the toppings: the salt/pepper HAD to go on the seafood. The oil HAD to go on the seafood. NONE of the veggies/toppings could touch the cheese. (Well gee, it's not like all that food isn't going to combine in her belly, right? *eyeroll*). So what happens when the sandwich artist closes the sandwhich? THEY ALL TOUCH! OH MY GOD!

The cashier then rings all the subs up. Hippie/Soccer mom lady has conveniently ignored the signs on the door AND windows (where you see your sub being made) that say "As of September 2005, we do not accept checks" (so yeah, as of almost a year ago). Well, duh, customers can't read.

Anywho, the cashier goes, "I'm sorry ma'ame, but we do not accept checks."

Hippie/Soccer mom lady becomes irate. "YOU ARE FUCKING KIDDING ME!" she exclaims. "WHY THE HELL NOT? AND SINCE WHEN?" very condenscendingly.

"As of September 2005," the cashier replies.

"I cannot FUCKING believe it....who the hell doesn't accept checks?!" Hippie/Soccer mom lady exclaims. Wake up, dumbass..........a lot of places currently do not accept checks anymore. If so many people didn't write bad checks, we wouldn't have this problem. A store can refuse checks if they want to.

She angrily rips up her check and digs through her purse and literally whips a $20 bill at the cashier (the way my customers at the gas station used to whip money at me). "That is just RIDICULOUS and inconvenient!" she sighs.

I think to myself......Ridiculous and inconvenient is being behind some dumb cow taking 10 minutes to scribble out a check that is probably bad anyways, and then refusing to show her ID for it.

Sorry to judge, but she totally looked like a customer who would freak out and refuse to show her ID for her check.......and I'll bet money if Subway accepted checks, I'd be right.

So she tromped off with her daughters, still mumbling how "stupid" it is that businesses do not accept checks. Like I said, wake up and smell the coffee.....more and more places are no longer accepting checks. Get a debit card, moron.

Aside from being rude, the customer should take an accounting class. You're supposed to write "VOID" on the check, not rip the check up.:rolleyes:

They never do! It could be in red neon on the roof and they still wouldn't see it. We have signs everywhere that say 'Have ID ready for beer/cigs, cash only, you name it. They don't see them. Never will. How come I can read signs and no one else can? :headdesk:

Just neon lights? Hah! They'll ignore much more than that. Hell, you could name the store "The No-Check Emporium," and you could answer the phone "Thanks for calling the No-Check Emporium, where we accept every form of payment except checks, my name is Don't Pay Me With A Check, how can I help you today?"

You'd still get people trying to pay with checks.

Even lower if it's my room temp. I like it at 16 celcius (60 Fahrenheit)

I could be wrong, but it's always been my understanding that restaurants of ANY type don't accept checks. It's always been cash and credit cards.

There are a few, but not that many anymore, and it seems like the few that do are starting to refuse checks one by one. Blame it on jackasses who can't manage their checkbooks.

now now, lets not insult the primates. They're probably more evolved that this customer.

Then again, the same could be said for primordial soup!:D

I had that happen to me once when I was working at the express lanes. I had to make an overhead announcement before I helped the next customer. (They were standing within in arms reach to my right, PLUS the speaker is right above my head)

"Attention Customers, when approaching the cashlanes today you'll notice to your right that the express lanes are open for your convenience. 10 items or less, no checks. Express lanes are open, 10 items or less, absolutely no checks. Thank you."

The couple then proceeds to unload 25 items and whips out a checkbook. :headdesk:

And I still get caught off guard by establishments that don't accept credit cards. I just don't carry cash in my purse anymore. I spend it too quickly.

Don't mean to be mean here, but I gotta say it:

You are the first person that I've seen that says having a credit card slows down their spending ability.:lol:

"I cannot FUCKING believe it...."

Close to the same situation here...only it was the new cash cards. We're in a convenience store and use different POS systems than other Subways. Our head office is still trying to figure a way out that enables the software to accept the Subway cash cards.

Younger guy, early 20s I'd say. Didn't accept an explanation from the Sandwich Artist so she came and got me, the Manager.

I tried to explain it to him, he interrupted when I was about 3 words into my explanation (If he'd listened long enough he would've heard the part about 50% off because for some strange reason we're not allowed to post notices about not accepting the cards) he started with the whole "You guys are F*&$ing crazy!"

At which point I picked up his sub, his chocolate milk and his bag of chips, put them on the counter behind me and said "It's very unfortunate that we're not going to be doing business today." Then I turned around and walked back into the kitchen/prep area and let him stew.

I'll take a lot of crap from customers. Until they start getting abusive. Then it's game over.
