    Default Fast food menu pictures vs the reality

    ever get your order and wonder if they had trained Capuchin monkeys assembling your food? needless to say, most fast food has nothing in the way of presentation but this made me laugh out loud

    Why your fast food order doesn't arrive as pictured

    Oh LORD - the Subway Chipotle Steak & Cheese with Avocado really made me laugh! It looks so...so...well, pathetic! What a sad specimen of a sandwich, to be sure - I almost felt sorry for it!

    The poor appearance of fast food doesn't bother me. What DOES bother me is when the food is so obviously thrown in. Big Macs that resemble a stairwell more than a burger, double points seemingly awarded for having more lettuce in the box than in the bun. Lol.

    Still buy them though. I'm such a sucker.

    Oh dear...I take it that you and your dates didn't end up going as well together as say, a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich, then..?



    Or was it, simply, that your date turned up dressed like this:



    Either way, I am of the opinion that one has to be 'two sandwiches short of a picnic' to use dating sites!

    Subway is the one that bothers me the most. At the fast food places, you know what you're getting. But Subway (and Quiznos too) really should scale back on the food in their photos. I know, I know, it's a marketing thing, but it really is false advertising. The Subway near me puts significantly less meat than the "what we got" picture! And yet they still advertise the "what you see" pictures in their establishment. Thankfully there are several REAL delicatessans around me with fresh food, a terrific menu and generous portions.

    And Subway touts being "Fresh?" Yeah right.

    Funny you say that as the first time I had a subway sub in the states I thought "damn they put a lot of meat in these things'.

    that's the one that really stood out for me and made me laugh. What an unappetizing looking, saggy turd of a sandwich
