Beat the System!

In today’s “Beat the System” – how to avoid long lines at Subway.

It’s noon – and you are starving. For some reason, the sugar-free vanilla latte you had this morning for breakfast just isn’t cutting it. Officially, you feel like a pig if you try to eat lunch before noon, so you are waiting for the first strike of 12 on the ole’ computer clock.

Dashing out the door, you pass such stalwart’s as “The Dirty Hot Dog Joint” on the corner, and “The Slimy Hot Dog Joint That Also Makes Smoothies” to head for Jared’s place (and one of the Barber twins, Tiki?) Subway.

BUMMER – huge line. But dare you leave your spot for something that you will recognize the taste for, or do you jump ship – and head to “The Mexican Place That Also Sells Soup”? Decisions, decisions. Here’s something that will help.

Scan the restaurant – and if you see a little touchscreen kiosk that allows you to place an order, and then just head to the register – DO IT. I just did it today, and people that had shown up before me were still waiting in line – and I was already out the door, chomping on Red Hot Cheetos! HA! Suckers!

Mmmmm… Toasty.Eat fresh, indeed!
