We're all familiar with the fine fast food establishment called Subway, right? In case you've somehow never had the distinct pleasure of walking into a Subway, here's a quick rundown of what you can expect. First of all, the smell. I don't even know exactly how to describe it other than to say it's very distinct. Legend has it that if you ever spend an entire hour inside a Subway restaurant, you will smell like Subway for the rest of your life.
Then there's the bread. Your sandwich journey officially begins when you select the type and size of bread you want to enjoy. Italian herb and cheese? Honey oat? Jalepeño cheese? I'm a flatbread fan, myself, but you can't go wrong here. After your bread selection, you choose your sandwich type, whether you want it toasted (which, of course, you do), and which veggies you want to decorate your lunch with.
It all seems simple, right? That's because it is. And yet, people manage to mess up at Subway all the time.
Here are some tweets from distraught Subway workers filling you in on all the ways people regularly screw up at Subway restaurants. Please, don't do these things.
The green stuff.Is this some kind of riddle? Do they only want green veggies, or are they referring to one green veggie in particular?
Do you want bacon with that?
When someone asks for bacon after their sandwich has been toasted....#subwayproblems https://t.co/9xtxhOrzIv— Gracie Stemle (@Gracie Stemle)1516813066.0
Say the bread first!
When people tell you what kind of sub they want/what they want on it before you even know what kind of bread they want😐😐 #subwayproblems— justin (@justin)1458184073.0
"The white cheese."
When someone asks for the "white cheese" on their sub 😑#subwayproblems https://t.co/d5Lt7jSJ8V— Quel🦋 (@Quel🦋)1472870740.0
Just the nails.OK, this misunderstanding is pretty funny. Although, I'm guessing Subway may have some rules about fingernail polish. I know all my food service jobs did!
"Yes."To be fair, I often become similarly incoherent when asked about cheese. But at least I know what kind of white cheese I want! (Pepperjack, thanks!)
Stop making out and tell me wtf you want on your sub. Thnx #subwayprobs http://t.co/wlGLBB6pxZ— Erin Jessica (@Erin Jessica)1441153655.0
Me: Hi there how are you doing today? Customer: Can I get an Italian BMT @SubArtist_Slave #Subwayprobs— james (@james)1438899794.0
Oh, the *good* sauce.
"Can I have that sauce...yknow the one that tastes good?" yes. I definitely know what you're talking about. #subwayprobs— Subway Problems (@Subway Problems)1432641704.0
Take a chill pill.
When a customer starts listing off their veggies and you haven't even gotten their bread yet. #subwayproblems https://t.co/jbFHv6HXOO— Mama K 👶 (@Mama K 👶)1459565838.0
This one drives me nuts.I feel like every time I'm in a Subway, I hear someone ask for "salad" on their sub. Sure, it's not a huge deal, but, come on. It's just lettuce.
I didn't know this one!
When a customer remembers to ask for guacamole before I put vegetables on their sub #SubwayProbs https://t.co/8k7ZieeWr1— Brielle🤍 (@Brielle🤍)1500824989.0
When it's 10:59 and a huge group of people come in to get food. #SubwayProbs http://t.co/otJaWJv2Nf— Katelyn Miles (@Katelyn Miles)1427523134.0
Do you know what veggies are?I guess tomatoes are technically fruits. Something tells me the customer wasn't listening, though.
Uhhhh...If you go to Subway, order a sandwich, and think it's too sandwichy. You probably should never go to a Subway again. Sandwiches are kind of their thing.
This guy just started yelling his order at me as soon as he walked through the door 😂 #wtf #subwayprobs— Cassie Berger (@Cassie Berger)1467860220.0
Just. Answer. The. Question.
*on register* Me: what kind of sandwich is this? Customer: no I just want the sandwich Me: ok, what's on it? Customer: to go #Subwayprobs— jennygrace ✨ (@jennygrace ✨)1463423582.0

Know what you want ahead of time!It's OK to change your mind as long as you're still polite when you tell your sandwich artist. But it's going to cause some trust issues.
You have to choose one.
"Heated OR toasted?" "Yes" @SubwayProblemss #subwayprobs— Ᏸrielle (@Ᏸrielle)1375643662.0
Ma'am I understand your passion for avacado but please refrain from letting out little moans as I spread it across the bread. #subwayprobs— ๔єαη ιηт๏ηтι ❼ (@๔єαη ιηт๏ηтι ❼)1375468879.0
Take a guess.I would be so tempted to ask people how long they think a footlong sub is. Take a wild guess.
Keep your hands to yourself!
