My unplanned last full week at work, a new Jimmy John's about a mile from one of our offices brought us free samples of their subs. Jennifer, our front desk queen, remembered that I was a vegetarian and selected a sample for me. When I was done with patients, I trekked on back to our kitchenette, and despite the depressing looks of the sandwich, pregnancy had me hungry enough to taste it anyway.
The sandwich was almost inedible--which I should have known based on the looks. I'm not a fan of slathered mayonnaise. And, the sandwich had a minimal amount of other ingredients of value (like veggies). I noticed that the small copy of the menu that came with the samples said there was another dip--avocado, I think? I don't remember as I threw the menu away and too much (unplanned, again) time has passed since I read it. Anyway, my thoughts are, if you are going to offer a sample, it should at least have the same ingredients involved as you claim the sandwich has on the menu. Seems to me that shows an automatic lack of attention to detail and little desire to make a good first impression.
Just to prove I'm not being overly picky, my EMT said his sandwich was edible. Then, he added "Sure, slices of ham and layers of mayo on white bread sounds good, but it's not a healthy meal you should want to eat.
