The dining services at my college are awful. To top it off, it's exorbitantly overpriced. One can get a sandwich or wrap made for 3.75. Included is the following:
Three slices of your choice of meat.
Two slices of your choice of cheese.
Oily vegetables to your heart's content.
Recently they've enacted a new method of making sandwiches, weighing the meat on a gram scale before making your sandwich. The three slices of meat must not exceed 4oz, or else the sandwich maker is supposed to find you a thinner or smaller slice to make it under 4oz.
Since each sandwich is made to order, and there's only one person on the station, one can imagine that this seriously holds up the line. I've been a good deal of sandwich shops in the past and have no memory of seeing a gram scale used for the meat. Then again, I haven't exactly paid attention; I only noticed this because the line was suddenly slower. Is this normal practice for a sandwich place?
