On top of that the article says that the subway worker felt there was a gun threat and so he moved out from behind the counter to block the customer from leaving. I don't know about anyone else but it doesn't make sense to me to get in the way of a person you feel threatened by and that you believe has a gun. Blocking the customer even without any kind of threats being made doesn't even make sense though.
The only thing I can think of is maybe the customer made some vague threat and headed for his car, and the employee thought he was going to get a gun from his car. From what I gather about Florida laws you can legally carry firearms in your vehicle.



Maybe. If that were the case though I would just let him leave and immediately call for police and either A. leave the subway store and notify wal-mart as well or B. run the hell away once he left and let everyone else deal with him when he comes back.

I don't know why the fuck you'd want that, but the beauty of taste is that everyone has their own. You should be free to choose whatever you want to have with your steak or whatever. This was absolutely ridiculous though lol.

Clearly you've never it before, it's okay everyone is pretty prejudice about this combo at first. You can't imagine just how delicious it is until you had it at a decent soul food/southern restaurant.

Minimum wage customer service = shady employee selection process.

Can the slug read and count to ten? Good. Give him a name tag. Diplomacy and tact are probably far down on the requirement list when you're paying 6$/hour or something.

Judging by the previous responses, I'd say that while requesting ketchup doesn't seem like a topic worth losing a job over, it's important to be aware that the DETAILS are what can either make a person's day or ruin it. Depending on what region you come from, ketchup can be "a sin" or the "elixir of life."

Does anyone listen to A Prairie Home Companion? They did a show in Chicago and made a joke about the mayor accidentally putting ketchup on his hot dog...the entire audience booed at that point.

I find this bit of news bittersweet. It's a great country to live in, where people are able to bicker about what goes in a sandwich, as opposed to fighting for leftover scraps of food to avoid starvation. At the same time, it's a sad country to live in, where people can lose their tempers (and jobs) bickering over what goes in a sandwich. When wealth is taken for granted, one cannot fully appreciate what a blessing it is to be rich. Experience a little hunger now and again, lest you forget the sweet taste of being filled.

I never noticed Subway didn't carry ketchup. I like ketchup but it doesn't go well some things, a philly being one of those.
