I'd add Jimmy Johns to the list of crap sandwiches. A few weeks ago I
did a gig and the client was insistent on getting me lunch. I didn't
know the menu so I told her to surprise me. She got me the roast
beef. There was two thin slices of meat, a little mayo, a bit of
nasty lettuce, and three paper thin tomatoes. I tasted like crap on
top of needed at least double the ingredients. I'd have been really
****ed if I had paid for it. Unfortunately the clients eat there all
the time and love it.
