Is this a trick question or

----

Since the same thing happened to me on a separate occasion, I have to consider the possibility that the people that work in sandwich shops are required to ask certain questions regardless of what the customer orders. Anyone have any insight?

I used to work in a deli, but we had make-your-own sandwiches, so I wouldn't know. :P

One time I was at Subway, I ordered a BLT sub, but apparently you have to tell them as they're making the sandwich that you want lettuce and tomato on it. I didn't know that, so I ended up just getting a bacon sandwich instead of a BLT. :P

Wait, they didn't even ask what you wanted on it? :/ That seems worse than asking a question wit ha (seemingly) obvious answer.

Nowadays, I like to cover my bases by just telling them that I want everything on my sandwich ;)

Actually, you had to specify everything you got on your sandwich. We didn't have any kinds of pre-made sandwich, we would even slice the meat as it was being ordered. So, everything was checked, we just never had to ask any obvious questions. :P

Ah, I see. That's probably more efficient :)

One of our local grocery stores has paper bags with all the sandwich ingredients (like types of bread, meats, veggies, etc.) printed on the front. Customers take the bag, circle all the things they want on their sandwich, then give it to the person behind the counter, who then makes the sandwich as indicated. Then they put the sandwich in the bag and give it back to the customer. That seems to work pretty well :)

That sounds really efficient. :) What's the name of the grocery store?

It's called Oliver's Market :) There's more than one store, but I don't think there are any outside of the area where I live (I could be wrong, though!)

I don't think there's one near me. I could be wrong though, the name almost sounds familiar.

Okay, so I looked it up, and there definitely aren't any in my area. In fact, I'm on the whole other side of the country. :P

Ah, well XD I'm sure there are other things near you that I've never even heard of over here :)

There's a lot of places around were I live that most people have never heard of. I live just outside of a small town (like, really small. We only have one red light in the whole town, and it takes at least 45 minutes to get to the nearest McDonald's and Walmart), so most of the business's are locally owned, and, therefore, one of a kind. Most of them are related to some type of art, as that's one of the things the town is known for. ;)

Sounds neat! There's just something about being part of a small community :)
