I used to always get a 6 inch sandwich and chips at Subway. When they launched $5 foot longs, I started forgoing chips in exchange for the 6 extra inches of sandwich. Today however, I went to Subway with the intention of only getting a 6 inch (no chips even), because I had a big cream cheesy bagel for breakfast, but then realized it’s kind of dumb, given that the foot long is like 40 cents more. I ended up getting the foot long, had it wrapped up separately and then offered my extra half to a homeless woman out front. She didn’t give me attitude when I told her what kind of sandwich it was (like some homeless peeps would), so I happily handed it over to her.
So, next time you go for the $5 foot long, think about whether or not you could sacrifice half for someone in need. And as a Friday bonus, here’s a dance remix of the $5 foot long jingle for everyone!
