My Honest Opinion: Subway Sandwich Edition


How excited are you that this opinion is not a movie or book review?

Sorry about that.

I get a little carried away when I get wrapped up in cinematic tales of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

(No, Will Smith, that is not a YOU reference.  But hey, give a girl some comment love and maybe I can make a YOU reference happen, K?  I mean, it's not like I didn't enjoy "The Pursuit of Happiness", it's just that I couldn't see the screen through my tears for like 95% of it.  That's all....)

But this week, I have something that I really need to get off of my chest.

Something that bothers me on a regular basis.

I don't know if I have mentioned it or not, but I am pregnant.

(sense the sarcasm, people...I mention it every day...all day long...)

And as such, I have regular, routine cravings for certain types of foods.

Most specifically subs.

More specifically Subway subs.

Even more specifically - 12" Italian subs on a 7 grain roll with pickles, peppers, lettuce, tomato, and a nice sized dollop of mayo to top it off.

But lest you get all - Oh, but Leah, you CAN'T have subs - think of the Listeria dangers!

I say, my doctor has totally given me the go-ahead to have subs from Subway.

Or any other sub shop that has a solid reputation of keeping their meats fresh.

My doctor is way cool like that.

Sometimes, we high five. 

But only before she gets down to business. 

Cause otherwise, that's just gross.

Thank GOD for her coolness in regards to lunchmeat, though, 'cause this girl would die if pregnancy cravings could not be squelched with the deliciousness that is a 12" roll topped with all the good stuff.

(Go ahead, you Michael Scott fans...say it.  That's what she said...yeah, yeah...hardy har)

But it is my solid opinion that Subway really needs to develop a drive-thru window.


You see, I have a toddler.

Meaning, we are not Subway friendly.

I mean, who wants to stand in line at Subway behind the chick who is screaming her order over the toddler who is repeatedly screaming "I Wanna COOKIE, MOMMY!!!!"

I'll tell you who.

No one.

That's who.


It's obscene.

And Subway, when you implement your drive thru window, I would prefer if you could install one of those awesome touch-screen computers that I can tell exactly how to make my sandwich without shouting it through a speaker 7 times.

Even if it does mean that I have to sanitize before I hand my kid his juice out of the floor for the 5th time in 2 minutes.

It is WORTH it to me.

Because seriously, there is nothing worse that coming home after a long day at work, and thinking "I want Subway for dinner" only to realize that you would never be able to enjoy Subway for dinner due to the awesomeness that is the toddler in your back seat.

I agree, I need a grocery store drive-thru, for parents of toddlers only!

We have a drive-thru Subway in Roanoke. And it's nice, but it is hard to order. But I wish there were more drive thru Subways.
