sub gender

Today we went to Subway for lunch. There was a lady in front of me ordering about 4 subs for work. Here was the conversation as best as I remember it for the fourth sub:

Subway Guy: And what toppings do you want for the fourth sub?

Customer Lady: Oh! I’m not sure. Just put whatever you’d normally put on that sandwich.

Subway Guy: Is it for a guy or a girl?

Customer Lady: A girl.

The Subway Guy went at it adding toppings that I as a guy would not be offended to eat. Both the Customer Lady and I snickered at the question and wondered what toppings were “male oriented” and what were “female oriented”.

I suppose subs do have gender bias based on toppings.

  • Toppings are most certainly gender biased! Boys get the pukey peppers and onions and black olives. Girls get the less abrasive lettuce and cucumbers.

    Well if that’s the case, Karin, Subway Guy got it all wrong. He was told it was for a girl and I know he put on black olives and the bannanna peppers. I don’t remember what all else he used.

  • Subway Guy’s a moron. Or gender confused.
