Nine times out of 10, when I step inside a restaurant or sandwich shop, I already know exactly what I want. Very rarely am I swayed by any daily specials. Call me a curmudgeon, but I spend all morning dreaming of one lunchtime treat – and come 1pm there is only one thing that will satisfy my insatiable hunger.
With that in mind, my Subway order rarely deviates from the tried and tested, “meatball marinara on wheat bread please mate”. Yes, I have wheat bread. No, I’m not one of those freaks who skips getting his sandwich cheesed and toasted. Imagine however, dreaming of your favourite Subway, only to arrive and find they have run out of your beloved topping.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to one lady who requested a meatball sub, only to find out that the establishment was emphatically sans meatball.
Flick over to the next page to see the dramatic fallout in full. Arriving at a Subway that has no meatballs might be one of life’s greatest disappointments. I don’t mean to exaggerate, but perhaps you don’t take lunch as seriously as I do. Anyway, one lady was told all the meatballs were gone and she lost her mind.
I’ll admit that my love for the meatball marinara runs deep, but I’m not sure I’d fly into a fit of rage like this. The lady in the below video had obviously had a pretty bad day, and losing her lunchtime favourite was clearly the final straw. Even as the poor sandwich artist behind the counter tries to apologise, the lady continues to rant and rave.
If someone denied me my meatball sub for six whole years, maybe I’d have a larger issue with it. Obviously though, this woman is absolutely crazy and I can only imagine that her claim that she lives upstairs is totally false. I feel so sorry for the staff member, because he is dealing with someone so enslaved by the power of the meatball that she has no option but to scream and shout until someone whips her up a sub.
One thing I don’t think she understands however, is that restaurants run out of stuff. Another thing she probably doesn’t quite grasp is that the customer is not always right. In fact, as the video above shows, sometimes customers are very, very wrong.
