Stopped into Subway the other day (yes I know I am on a fast food fast BUT this Subway doesn’t have a drive-thru) and got 2 five dollar footlongs. One of these sandwiches was for P who wanted extra bacon. The Subway guy making my sandwiches informed me there would be an extra charge of a $1.50 for the bacon. I tell him that is “no problem” even though there were, in fact, two problems: 1) P just made a $5 footlong a $6.50 footlong (which does NOT make for a catchy jingle), and 2) His love of extra bacon is going to make me a widow someday. The Subway guy makes P’s sandwich then made mine. He rings up the total: $10.60. He forgot the extra bacon charge. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! P is happy and so am I. I know I should have said something. My parents raised me to be honest BUT this lady just got $1.50 break. I happily paid the $10.60 and went on my merry little way. Then I got to thinking, which usually gets me in trouble. Did I do the right thing? Should I have been honest about the bacon? Could Subway have overcharged me at some point in the past and I just got my money back now?
Then that funny little thing that some may call “karma” stepped in. I get home and notice P dumping a full beer out in the yard (because we are classy like that). I ask what he is doing. He then informs me he went to drink a beer that he purchased at the gas station and it was a “bad” beer. I ask him how much the beer was. His answer: $1.50.
This girl can’t catch a break.
So did I do the right thing at Subway? What would you guys have done?
