Subway Sued Over Sandwich Length

Two men from New Jersey have sued Subway because they say the footlong sandwiches measure less than 12 inches.

If you're headed to Subway bring your appetite -- and your ruler.

That's if you pay as close attention to the size of your sandwich as two New Jersey men, who are suing the fast food chain because they say the advertised footlong sub is just shy of 12 inches.

According to NBC 10, the lawsuit was filed this week. The plantiffs, John Farley of Evesham and Charles Noah Pendrack of Ocean City, said they measured 17 Subway footlong sandwiches and all were not quite 12 inches. 

The NBC 10 report goes on to say the plantiffs are seeking compensatory damages and a change in Subway's practices.

This is what you call hard core LAME. seriously? because they are not all quite 12 inches long? mega lame. subway is one of the few places left that does not skimp. they will the subs nicely with your selected ingredients and do not hesitate and do not charge you to "add more" if you ask for it. hard core lame. I hope the judge bi$%& slaps these guys for this frivolous suit. unless they have evidence they are intentionally doing this I see no merit to this case.

The lameness is you writing that comment. I guess you work there and like to rip people off. If a major company advertises relentlessly day and night about their product then why not give us what we pay for. The stupid sanwich cleaerly states foot long That is 12 inches unless they are measuring various foot sizes such as shoes? This company has probally sold millions of non foot long sandwiches for years now and has cheated the customers of alot of footage of rolls and or meat too. The evidence is there you just are too stupid to see it. These companies need to either give us what we pay for or go out of business.So I see no merit to your comment.

People like you leave me sad for our species. very sad indeed. leaves me with little hope for the potential success of our species on this planet. Just for the heck of it I bought a $5 footlong yesterday. I was hungry it was 550calories so it fit in my diet well and I wanted to see for myself. it was 11.56 inches long. SO it was short of being a "foot long" by less than the width of my pinky finger. If there is any evidence its painfully obvious that your too stupid and lack enough functioning brain cells to realize its irrelevant. if the subs were 9 inches ok I could see a complaint being somewhat valid (a lawsuit however? no) BTW it was over 12 inches if I measured the "meat" width and not just the "bread" width since the meat extended past the bread on each end. you do realize the meat is some 4+ inches wide right? so a sandwich length offset of .44 inches is going to make ZERO relevant difference in so far as what fits on it. people like you remove any hope I have for humanity. people like you are sick lack common sense and basic intelligence and just all around give homo sapiens a bad rep. Please go crawl back under your rock and stop shoving it in my face how hopeless our species is.
