Remember that one "greedy" guy in Australia who had a problem with Subway footlong sandwiches not actually measuring in at a full, well, foot long? Apparently, he was really not alone in his frustration. After he launched his Facebook campaign to complain about the chain's signature sandwich, a couple of customers stateside decided to file actual lawsuits over the measurement discrepancy. For. Real.
This week, lawsuits were filed by separate plaintiffs in Chicago and in New Jersey, each who were seeking damages because their sandwiches were missing an inch or more. The Chicago suit alleges a "pattern of fraudulent, deceptive, and otherwise improper advertising, sales, and marketing practices." And the New Jersey lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $5 million. So. Crazy!!
