As proof that they are the real heroes, the staff recalled serving customers with certain preferences bread with spices, sandwiches wrapped in oil, and whole sacks of lettuce.
A subpar experience: Subway workers share the weirdest, scariest sandwich orders they've ever had to make (stock image)
Some orders seem to be burned forever in the minds of subway workers, such as what a particularly hungry 6 & # 39; 5 ", 300 lb. man bought.
“The guy would get a foot long with the BBQ Rib Patty (the most disgusting on the menu) AND the Veggie Patty (the most disgusting on the menu). He'd also get four times the extra bacon (the same amount as a foot-length BLT of double meat).
In addition to all of the meat, he would get lots of each cheese on a regular basis. To recap, at this point he has enough meat for 4 feet and enough cheese for 4 feet. On one goddamn foot.
"It's going to be fine here," added the commentator. “This guy wouldn't get any vegetables. He would only ask for salt (not salt and pepper, just salt). And the cherry on top, he'd say, "Don't bother cutting it in half. I'll just start at one end and stop at the other."
Another commentator had an even more unsavory memory.
The strangest, or at least disgusting, was this guy who kept coming in and ordering a tuna pizza. We would literally take the tuna salad and just put a layer of it over the pizza, then cover it with cheese and bake for a few minutes, ”they wrote.
Hoagie Horror: In response to a recent AskReddit thread, current and former employees of the chain share the most bizarre and disgusting requests they have ever had to fulfill
Another commentator said the city's foreign exchange students from South Korea would always order the meatball submarines with "Seafood Sensation" balls, which were just mayo and faux crab. Then let it roast. & # 39;
A trucker with a sweet tooth elsewhere asked for a toasted tuna sandwich with extra pickles and 2 packets of Splenda.
Ordering an inadequate amount of a single ingredient has been a popular topic with commentators asking for "extra" on everything from olives to oil to cheese.
"A lady came in and got the sliced meat combination and asked for oil," wrote one commentator. "I've always loved watching new employees prepare their food because she looks amused, turns into confusion, and turns into horror when she demands more oil."
When the bottle was emptied on her sandwich, she would ask to be refilled so she could have more oil.
“When you finished, the bread was so saturated with oil that it would only burst if you tried to touch it. They had to use the paper to try and turn the oily mess into a vaguely sub-shaped lump and quickly roll it up before it leaked all over the place. & # 39;
A former employee remembered a pregnant customer who ordered a long ham sandwich with a staggering amount of olives.
& # 39; Like MULTIPLE, whole handful of black olives. So much so that it was difficult to close and wrap the sandwich without the olives coming out, ”he said.
Real heroes! Employees remembered serving bread with spices, oil-pickled sandwiches and whole sacks of lettuce to customers with very special preferences
The woman told him "it was the baby who wanted the olives" and the other staff wouldn't put enough on the sandwich – so she would always ask him to make the sandwich.
Another woman, such as a former employee, just ordered a double serving of American cheese on white bread. No vegetables, no spices. Cheese only.
Eventually she started asking for more and more cheese until it was easy 10x what came to it. She must have been amazed when I stopped. & # 39;
Another commenter recalled a man who ordered two full bags of lettuce on his sandwich every day. Imagine 2 pounds of lettuce on some bread. & # 39;
Like the oil-loving woman, there have been several customers who really like her spices.
Another Subway employee said a customer ordered a 6-inch honey wheat, just spices … all if you don't mind.
And yet another would "come in regularly to order a foot long on white, double mayo, salt (and) pepper".
Not all "strange" commands would turn a person's stomach, however.
The commentator once said they had to cut additional holes in Swiss cheese for an eight-year-old customer who was clearly more interested in aesthetics than his money.
