Subway actually trademarked the word "footlong". Because it's technically a name and not a measurement the sandwhich can be as long as they want it.
Foot long ( two words) a measurement of 12 inches
Footlong (one word) a ******** marketing scheme

So the 6 inch is?... What they like!

Thats why when i get a big mac its small!

I never ask for a foot long though, I ask for a 12 inch. It also says it is 12 inches on the menu

it could just be what people are used to? my dad measures things in millimeters and he's a carpenter, i do my measurements in centimeters just because that's the way i was taught in school even though i know the conversion which is pretty straight forward

Would it make a difference if you looked at those 42mm as 4,2cm?
User avatar #65 to #10 - athojew (01/16/2013) [-]
0.0042 kilometres of a sub.
User avatar #11 to #1 - defeats (01/15/2013) [-]
4.2cm is a big mouthful that you're losing...

Who the **** mixes metric with imperial.
I'm having a ******* heart attack here because of this.
It's either metric or go back to school and get taught properly.

because it is easier to mesure small things accuratly in millimeters. **** YOUR EMPIRICAL SYSTEM. SERIOUSLY WHO THE **** MESURES IN FRACTIONS. IT IS ******* NIGHTMARE BEING USED TO THE METRIC SYSTEM AND THEN WORKING AT A JOB WERE ALL THE NUTS AND BOLT ARE EMPIRICAL.

Yeah, I find it so weird when I hear Americans talk about measurements, and they say something like 5/8ths of an inch. Sure, measure things in 8ths of inches, that's not complex at all

#17 to #3 - swooz (01/15/2013) [-]
its a footlong so you measure it in inches
User avatar #21 to #17 - happypancake (01/15/2013) [-]
The only way people seem to be able to express something smaller than an inch is ****** up fractions like 5/8ths of an inch and that's just a huge ******** for someone who likes a simple decimal system
#29 to #21 - swooz (01/15/2013) [-]
yea i know what you mean
User avatar #75 to #21 - mookiez (01/16/2013) [-]
I'm used to the fractions. I have done a lot of construction so I can get it down to 1/16 of an inch. But I should learn decimals. Everyone says it is easier.
#36 to #17 - fearlessdeeds (01/16/2013) [-]
I think the joke flew over your head...   
   
I'm implying that the person measuring the sub isn't American

It's funny 'cause it's true.
I work in a Subway in Scotland and have to deal with a lot of Spics and such, when I ask them if they want a 6-inch or a footlong and they pause with a confused look on their face, I simply rephrase and say "Would you like 30cm or 15 cm?".
User avatar #13 to #3 - Ivandrago (01/15/2013) [-]
The foot is an imperial measurement, so it makes no sense to use metric.

in design, we use mm as unit often because it works better with calculation and software.. and also because the comma is ****** annoying when you're handling measurements.. i think

44mm not much you say?? well if we take the length short (44mm) and multiply it by the avg number of people eating footlongs everyday just in the US.. thats 5million subs.. multiply 44mm by 5mil thats 220mil mm. convert that to feet and you find that subway is saving 721785 feet.. multiply by the avg cost of the foot long sub 5$ they are making 3.608 million $ off us each day **** you subway and your 44mm large buisness stealing commi tactics
#90 to #86 - traelos (01/16/2013) [-]
But if you're going to consider every person eating a footlong you have to include the people who get ones that are 44 mm too long, and everything in between. When you average them out I imagine they turn up somewhere in the general area of a perfect foot.

I ******* hate Subway. And all the ***** that come to them, I've been employed for over two years now.

>be working at subway

>people flood the store in seconds
>first comes up, a black man and his family
>orders 3 assorted footlongs
>get to the end, he hands me 3 coupons
>"Sorry sir we limit one coupon per order" (since it's physically impossible to apply more than one coupon code on the register)
> ***** flips the **** out
>Calls everyone working a bitch, ************* cunt, etc and raises hell in front of his kids and everyone else in line
>Pays for his sandwiches and goes to the dining room and throws it everywhere
>MFW stuff like that happens on daily basis

subway employee, the size of the bread depends on how much it's allowed to rise before it's put in te oven, much more important is how well the bread is baked, and how well it's kept from drying out. I work at one of the few subways where customers compliment us because we're not selfish about veggie toppings, just as important meat quantity is not dependent on the size of the bread.

Facebook user: Your footlong is 42mm shy of a foot
Subway: What the **** did you just ******* say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the **** out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my ******* words. You think you can get away with saying that **** to me over the Internet? Think again, ****** . As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re ******* dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little **** . If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your ******* tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will **** fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re ******* dead, kiddo.

I've seen that before, but the ******** meter goes off the charts when it says gorilla warfare, because it's _ guerrilla_ warfare, then I silently chuckle to myself because I imagine him throwing literal **** (and killing 300 people) while in a mission.

One time I went to Subway with a friend and while we entered the door i was saying how i dig blonde girls. Then when I went to have my sandwich made, this large 45+ year old blonde woman stared me straight in the soul and smiled with all 3 teeth of hers while drawing a heart with mayonnaise.

I went to the local subway with my friends for lunch, so as a joke i took a ruler with me. I made a bet with the lady serving with us. If it is short i get it free, if its perfect or longer i buy her a sub.

There's also a local sandwich chain here called the Sandwich Spot. Their sandwiches are goddamn amazing, but they're a bit pricey.
