Watch out for me. I’m powerful.
While filing some receipts this morning, I noticed these words printed on a Subway receipt:
“Thank you for making Subway the world’s best sandwich.”
I would have given Subway the credit, but, okay, they surely know better than I do.
What they mean, of course, is that Subway’s business is up; people are buying more of their sandwiches. So it would be much more accurate to print something like “Thank you for making Subway the world’s most popular sandwich.”
Ah, but popularity is fleeting. The “best” sandwich mean so much more! Is “best” really determined by which sandwich sells the most?
Perhaps instead of pondering all this philosophical stuff, I ought to kick back and enjoy knowing that I played a part in making something, anything, the best.
