My daughter and I were watching television last night and a Subway Sandwich commercial came on. Apparently they’re having a sale right now – something like when you buy a six-inch sub it’s $5.00 but for a quarter more you get a whole sandwich.
Daughter: I hate it when they do this sale.
Because I can never eat a whole sandwich but now if I buy a half, I feel like I’m getting ripped off. The other day I was in there and ordered a half and I felt Like the whole restaurant turned around and gasped, and then this woman ahead of me tried to be helpful and told me that for only a quarter more I could get a whole sandwich.
So what did you do?
I only got a half, but I felt like I wasted money.
So next time get the whole thing and only eat half and save it for later.
That doesn’t work, because you can’t save those. They get all soggy in the refrigerator, and then it’s just sitting there and I paid good money for it so I feel like I should eat it even though it’s gross.
So you can either get a half and not worry that people think you’re an idiot, or get the whole thing and feel like you got a a good deal even though you’ll throw half of it away and waste perfectly good food when people are starving in the world.
Sigh, I don’t think I can even go there anymore.
Note to Subway – your sale is too stressful.
