When Subway launched its Flatzilla, their square, pizza-type product, they most certainly trained their sandwich artists on the finer aspects of Italy’s best-known delicacy. I can’t imagine a corporation like that, even one whose franchises are independently owned, would overlook something so important.
What they most certainly cannot account for is the occasional confused or lazy employee. One who might mistake one item for another. For Subway, you see, has both marina sauce for its meatball sub and pizza sauce for its Flatzilla.
As an Italian, I can attest that the differences between the two are negligible. Tomatoes. Onions. Garlic. Herbs. Simmering. Sure, maybe someone with the nuance of Mario Batali would concoct two completely different products, but I imagine Subway’s are fairly identical.
Bevalente Michette Hall, of Gastonia, N.C., must not be terribly familiar with the two tomato-based products. So when a Subway employee put marina sauce on her Flatzilla—instead of pizza sauce—she did the only reasonable thing a person in that situation could do.
Call 911. Listen to the audio. It’s worth it.
The dispatcher sent an officer, and Hall, not the nefarious sandwich artist, was arrested.
She was released on $2,000 bail.
