The Correct Way to Order at Subway

When first greeted by a Subway sandwich artist, state the type of sandwich you'd like, the size, the type of bread, whether you want cheese, and whether you want it toasted. (e.g., 6" Veggie on wheat, no cheese, not toasted)

After being asked:"What would you like on your sandwich?" begin listing the items you want, in the order you would like them added (e.g., lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc.). Do not tell the artist what you don't want. This is confusing. Scientific studies have shown that when you tell someone not to do something, they focus on the something, not the not. Like when you tell yourself not to eat a cookie. Suddenly, all you can think about is cookies, until you end up eating an entire bag. Same goes for the sandwich artist, when you tell him no pickles, all he can think about is pickles. And if all that isn't enough to convince you, years ago I met a Subway sandwich artist who worked with a guy who had met Jared, who told me to order that way.

You're welcome America.
