Subway Sandwich Artist
Subway likes to call their staff who put sandwiches together “Sandwich Artists”.
What is a Sandwich artists anyway, the word artist means or at least conjures images of something grand. To be an artist, you assemble something unique in your mind, your thoughts are then manifested into some physical form that requires great skill. To be an artist, you put, your heart, mind and soul into a finished product
Now lets see, the Subway Sandwich.
The bread, pre made and frozen, you just gotta heat it up, no artistry here
The filling, pre made and frozen, you just gotta defrost, no artistry here
The Veggies, pre cut, you just gotta put it in the bun, no artistry here
So what is left for the artist to do, well maybe the combination of different fillings will create mouth watering combinations only a true food artisit can create. Alas, you the person standing have to tell “Artist” what to put in the bun. You my friends, the customer, is the real artist at Subway, but get no credit for it….
I mean, come on, why do they need to come up with dumb names like that, its insulting to the staff. If I was to work there and they told me that this is your job title, I would think they are making fun of me. Seriously don’t you think?
Any way, from one artist to the other. If you find your self standing at a Subway looking to order something. Here is my recommendation
Foot Long, Honey Oat Bread, Veggie Sub (Trust me)
Lettuce, Tomato, Cucumber, Green Pepper, Easy on the Onion, Heavy on the Black Olive, Heavy on the Green Olive, Easy on the Hot Pepper, Light Mayo, Salt, Pepper.
