Try going in at a busy time so there is a queue, give you a chance to watch a few people go through the motions.I'm assuming many people here have issues going into places and ordering food, like I do. My issue is not only am I scared of making a fool of myself and not knowing what to do, but also ordering food I've never tried before and ending up hating it.
I've never been to subway, but I figure I'll have to try one of these days. I have no idea what to do, but I guess I'll have to give it a shot. How do I go about getting something from there?
Good job!Well I just got back from doing it. It went pretty decently. I fumbled a little and was not totally sure what I was doing. I didn't even get what I came in to get because I could not read the sign, and also because I was worried I would irritate the people at the counter for waiting too long, but I ended up with something tasty regardless. I'm happy I was brave enough to do it and I might go back tomorrow to try again.
Damn! Pizza sub sounds like the sh*t!Get a foot long pizza sub on italian herbs and cheese bread. That's my favourite order Yeah totally man you should go to subway. It's the bomb!
This.i think having issues with ordering food, especially subway, is a common thing for people with sa. i dn't think you should feel ashamed about it.
go in, and look for the sign that says "please order here". usually it's on the opposite side to the cash register
all the instructions for ordering are very clearly marked nowadays lol. you can get bread on white or brown, and there are 3-5 other fancier varieties iirc. and you can see what each bread looks like because they have it displayed
so you ask for what sub you want and specify if you want 6 or 12 inch, and type of bread. they'll likely ask if you want it toasted (warmed up). then they ask if you want it with cheese. sometimes they try to upsell you to extra cheese or meat which costs extra. then you move over a bit to the veggie area, veggies are all there so you can pick the ones you want, as many as you want. then the sauces, there is a sign that shows what each one is. being in canada you can ask for sub sauce it's sort of a vinaigrette type thing.
then you move to the register and they will ask if you want a combo (cookie/chips and a drink). and that's up to you. personsally i recommend the white chip macadamia nut cookies but all subway cookies are pretty great
it's really not as scary as it seems! go for it! best of luck.
