Subway restaurants advertises its footlong sandwiches as being, well a footlong, and an Australian customer recently took to Facebook to complain that his sandwich didn't quite measure up to what they advertised.
Australian Subway customer Matt Corby took a tape measure to the sandwich chain's vaunted Footlong and complained in a post on Subway's Facebook page that it was an inch short, Gawker noted on Wednesday.
The page is full of comments about the supposedly length-challenged hoagies while collecting more than 100,000 "Likes."
"If I'm paying for a footlong sub that they so annoyingly advertise, then I want a footlong sub," Reggie Martinez wrote. "And to all others, yes it does matter."
Corby asked Subway for a response but the chain had yet to answer at press time. As of Wednesday evening, the Huffington Post hadn't had much luck either in getting comment at Subway's Milford, Conn., headquarters.
Meanwhile, in a Subway store last week, a restaurant employee threatened the life of a customer after he ordered a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich with ketchup and the employee said they were out of stock which nearly led to a fight between the two.
