Matt Corby (hopefully not the former Australian Idol wunderkind turned alternative radio Lothario) took a photograph of the offending sub, which he had measured using a tape measure.

He then posted the photograph, a long with a complaint to Subway Australia’s Facebook page, a post that has gone on to garner over 100,000 likes.

According to the Huffington Post the Australian’s complaint has made it all the way to the US of A, with a Subway spokesperson issuing Corby an apology.

“We always strive for our customers to have the most positive experience possible, and we believe this was an isolated case in which the bread preparation procedures were unfortunately not followed.”

It just goes to show that one inch either way can make the difference between complete satisfaction and utter disappointment… A sobering thought.
