A one-star Subway review went viral because it was just so petty
We’ve all had a disappointing experience with takeaway food, whether that’s because it was cold by the time it reached us, or it was the wrong order, or maybe there simply wasn’t enough to fill our hungry bellies. But we should spare a thought for those on the other side of the counter and the things they have to put up with.
Over on Twitter, someone named Leo shared a screenshot of a one-star review for a branch of Subway, and it went viral due to just how utterly unreasonable it was.
Everyone who works in customer service should legally be allowed to fight one customer a year. pic.twitter.com/E0PRDmylJa

People couldn’t help but be amazed at the brass neck of the woman, and here’s what some of them had to say about her.
So this sub worker made roughly one sub per minute, for over an hour, at short notice, the customer’s response was this?
If I had needed 63 subs that badly and the server actually made them for me I don’t think I would be able to thank them enough.

I mean, wow, can’t you make more than one sandwich per minute I have a prior engagement to get to that I’ve known about for weeks, probably

How hard is it for people to call ahead for that sort of thing. The Subways near me wouldn’t even have 63 foot longs baked at one time

Like that someone typed this review thinking anyone would support their entitlement. 63 subs in 60 minutes is pretty damned good, actually.

There was a lot of sympathy for Leo’s ‘one fight per year’ policy.

Alternatively, I propose one day where retail employees can just unload on bad customers. Like the Purge, but for politeness.

I bet after a decade or so I'd make it to January 3rd.
