Subway employees are revealing the strangest orders they have received while working for the restaurant franchise. The conversation came about during a Reddit discussion that began last week during which users were urged to share the "strangest order you've ever had from a customer?" Answers have been streaming in since and some of the orders are bizarre.
One employee revealed that a customer would regularly order two footlong flatbread sandwiches and demand that they be toasted separately for precisely eight minutes "with all of the veggies on it." The staffer explained that "if someone tried to toast them together, he refused to accept it and insisted we start over."
"This one guy used to come into my sub shop at least twice a week. Always ordered a steak and cheese with extra, extra ketchup," another Subway staffer recalled. "Except you couldn’t put enough ketchup on it. We could use over half a bottle and he would still come back and ask for the bottle because 'packets took too much time.'"
A third staffer described how one customer would order frozen eggs.
"We had frozen egg disks that we were supposed to heat in the oven. I say egg, but really it was more of a frozen circle of egg whites with a yellow piece in the middle (that may or may not be missing depending on luck of the draw)," the employee wrote. "This one guy would come in every shift I had and order just the egg circle, but didn't want us to heat it up. We handed him hard, frozen, disgusting looking, disks that sounded like rocks when banged against the counter, covered in ice flakes. He barely spoke English, so the first time he showed up we were very confused to say the least. But once we understood he was very happy with his egg hockey pucks."
Another employee wrote of a customer who would ask for "enough extra mayo that it’s about an inch thick" on his order.
"I also had a regular who asked for extra onions on his sandwich every time and when I had to tell him once that we were actually out, he left and came back with an onion he asked me to dice and put on his sandwich for him," the staffer added.
Other unique orders included sandwiches made with "two full bags of lettuce," sandwiches with cold cut meat covered in oil, and a meatball sub with vegetables, four different sauces, and two chocolate chip cookies crumbled on top.
