I went to bed at 10pm last night and woke at 5.30am this morning. It's probably
the first time I've missed midnight on New Year's Eve since I was a kid. I was
surprised I didn't get woken by fireworks. For obvious reasons I'm glad to see
2004 over and start a brand New Year.
This morning I felt the urge to get out of the house, so walked around town
with Peter and his nine-year-old son. It was pretty deserted, with just a couple
of shops open, including Debenhams and HMV. There wasn't much choice of places
to eat, so we ended up at Subway. My first visit...
Peter ordered a Dijon Horseradish Melt. But, after the sandwich had been assembled,
it turned out there was no Dijon sauce and the sandwich operative behind the counter
explained they didn't do that particular sauce anymore. Quite bizarre that it
was up there on the board and they hadn't thought to mention this until such a
late stage. Peter said in that case he didn't want the sandwich and walked out
of the shop in a huff, leaving me and his son sitting in the window seats eating
our sandwiches while he stood outside. It was funny...
As for my first impressions... There's a spartan air about the Subway stores.
A bit grim. I've looked through the window of others. Maybe like other fast food
restaurants they aim to deter customers from lingering too long?
