Another Small Town Moment…

Believe it or not, we actually have a Subway in town.  Tonight I went to buy some food around 9:00 PM.   The store closed at 10:00, so I figured this would give me ample time.

There were three of us in line.   As usual, there was only one brain-dead teenager working the store.  It took 10 minutes for her to get around to making my sandwich.  When it was finally done, I asked to have my sub toasted.

“Sorry, sir.  We shut our oven off.”

“What?  You have got to be kidding me!”.

“No.  We shut our oven off at 8:30.”

“But you close at 10:00!”

And then the snarky little 16-year-old rolled her eyes at me, and said:  

“Do you know how HOT those things get?”

Moral of the story.  If you want to buy a toasted sub, make sure you get to the Subway NINETY MINUTES before it closes.

Sigh.   Only in Splat Creek.

    Seriously? You live in a place called Splat Creek?

  2. Friar Says:

    Wellll……Not really.

    I changed the name….for reasons of privacy and anonimity.

    It’s a small enough town that the yokels here could identify themselves in my stories. I don’t want mobs with pitchforks and torches to show up at my door. 🙂

    Heck, I got into ENOUGH trouble with my Letters to the Editor (see “Friar Versus the Grayheads”).

  3. When I read you had a subway in town, I thought you meant an underground transportation system! I’ve never been on one myself. As for Subway the sandwich place, well, let’s just say I’ve given it a few chances but it hasn’t won me over yet. Pretty soon summer will be here then maybe the Subway teens won’t turn that oven on at all!

    Splat Creek with a subway? Hahahah! Never in a million years.

    I can take or leave Subway restaurants. But at 9 oclock at night it’s either that or Burger King for fast food. (I won’t touch the God-Awful’s pizza Franchise).

    I think I’m going to write or email Subway, and complain. (Mabye I’ll stir things up again). But seriously…..people in this town need to be told.

  5. @Friar, You choose Subway over both Burger King and PIZZA? ::: shaking head :::

  6. Friar Says:

    It is was a real Mom and Pop pizza place, that would be my first choice. But it’s Godfathers…franchise pizza….not very good. I do like Burger King, but I had it often enough, I felt I’d try the Subway.

    After last night, I think it’s back to Burger King.

  7. LOL Firar, this cracks me up as we have a subway too (that of the sandwich version) and I live in small town suburbia. Those dumb teenagers you mentioned – could be from where I live too. Hahahaha….

    Sullen teenagers, grease, and minimum wage. A sure-fire winning combination, eh?
