Subway is an awesome place to eat... they make sandwiches that are edible thanks to the fact that they actually bother to ask you what you want to put on it. In addition to this the BBQ sauce is really nice.
I grabbed my usual footlong BMT on Italian bread with green peppers, cucumber, jalapeno peppers and BBQ sauce, sat down to enjoy my breakfast/lunch and was suddenly reminded of the last time I ate Subway.
Quentin, Xiaoxiao, my mum and I were all wandering around Shanghai on our last day in China. I was hungry and we somehow managed to convince a taxi driver to take us to a Subway. I have no idea how we did this as we didn't know the Chinese name for Subway, or even where it was.
But, anyway, we got there, wandered in and began to order. The guy that worked there also appeared to live there. No doubt behind the curtain he had a bed, TV, computer, etc. This guy was totally weird and found the whole situation very amusing.
As soon as we got sat down and started to eat a bunch of four or five Japanese girls came in. I can only imagine they found the same taxi driver that we did.
Anyway, these Japanese girls clearly spoke less Chinese than I did, but managed to ask for the toilet (finding the toilet was an experience in itself) and spend a good fifteen minutes deciding what they wanted. In the end they laughed a lot (classic Japanese schoolgirl) and left... without ordering anything.
To make the whole situation more amusing they all decided that they would take a photo of the Subway once they'd gotten outside.
I can see their photo album now: "Subuwayu... didn't eat here."
