Signs You're In a Bad Subway

The sandwich shop, not the hurtling underground bad sex metaphor waiting to happen.  Although, as we've seen, both can totally kill you:

-Entire sandwich bar is encased in bulletproof glass

-Customer in front of you is engaged with Sandwich Artist in some sort of altercation involving "bread with a hole in it."

-Access to the bathroom is gained only after clerk shoves fear-coated key attached to world endingly huge keychain through some sort of time and space bending spinny device

please do not ask how I know this at:  mbe@drinktothelasses.com

Will you not disclose the location of the offending establishment?

Did you turn around and walk away or did your hunger force you to endure said Subway hardships? Sometimes hunger is a force for evil.

It was 2 PM and I was out of Low Blood Sugar Emergency Rations. I was courting death either way and figured I might as well go with a turkey club on wheat in hand.
