WTF Olives

This was pretty WTF to me, since I go to Subway all the time and have never had this problem (not even the previous times I was at this particular Subway).

So yesterday, I stopped by my neighborhood Subway, which I've only been to a couple of times. I got to the part where they guy adds my veggies. I went through the same list I always go through, and as always, asked for extra olives. The amount he put on looked like the regular amount anyone at any Subway has ever put on before I ask for extra. Okay, so maybe he didn't hear me. I asked again, he reached in and very deliberately plucked out two more olives. I should also clarify that these are sliced olives, so he actually picked out two slices.

I was kind of taken aback by this and just stared at him for a moment. He shrugged his shoulders and said, "Hey, I gave you way more than I was supposed to. I'm only supposed to give you three."

I was silent for a moment and then replied, "Three little pieces? For the whole sub?" He just shrugged again and gave me a look that said, oh well, what can you do. I just kept my mouth shut, made the face in my icon, and moved along toward the cash register.

Three olives? Wha? I can understand three tomato slices, which is what I always see them put on the sub. But olive slices are so much smaller than tomato slices. I don't get it. Any current/former Subway employees out there, is this guy right or is he just making shit up?

For lunch today, I'm going to the Subway by my work, where they always load up my sub with plenty of olives. Yum.

ETA: OMG, I can't believe this is an actual rule! Thanks, Subway people, for clarifying. I'm just so glad that there are so many Subways (the one by my job especially!) that don't follow it. Because seriously, three olives? Not cool.
