What, No Ketchup?
Everybody puts ketchup on their hot dogs, on their hamburgers, on their cheeseburgers, etc. So, why is ketchup, then, not offered at the sub-sandwich fast food restaurants such as Subway, Firehouse, Robin Hood, and others? What is it about a sub-sandwich that makes you NOT want to put ketchup on it? Beats me. That has puzzled me ever since I was one day in the Subway restaurant, and I asked for ketchup to put on my sub. Their answer was that ketchup was a condiment that they did not offer. They have plenty of mustard, though. They have plenty of mayonnaise. They even have pickles, and jalapeños (isn't that a Mexican thing?). The Firehouse has plenty of hot sauces. But I didn't see ketchup when I went there, either. I thought ketchup was a good ole American condiment.
I'll have you know, that there is a sub place close to the place where I used to work. It is called, Robin Hood, and, they have good subs. Sometimes I used to eat there. Again, once I went there and asked for ketchup to put on my sub, and they said that they did not have any. They had plenty of Mustard, Mayonnaise, and other stuff; they even had oil and vinegar, but no ketchup. So I mentioned it to the lady that was making the subs. I said, "You know, I'd like to put some ketchup on my sub and I wonder why it is not offered." The next time I went in there, there was a tub full of little ketchup packets/squeezies. Now, they are smart. They know how to please the client, the customer. Today I used the little ketchup packets for the first time when I went there. Not bad, I say, a sub with a little bit of ketchup is a good thing. You ought to try it sometime!
