A Subway diner was horrified when she she measured her ‘six inch sub’ – and it measured just 4.5.
Gutted Karly Coulton ordered the sandwich for lunch but after opening it thought it looked a lot smaller than expected.
She then decided to whip out a ruler to measure the sub and found her suspicions were correct.
The sub, which she paid £3.80 for, turned out to be only four-and-a-half inches long – 1.5 inches smaller than advertised.
Karly, 33, said: “I popped out of work to grab a quick bite to eat and Subway was one of the nearest places to go.
“I chose a six-inch inch baguette but thought it looked extremely small, especially for the money.
“Naturally, once I was back in the office my colleagues and I decided to measure it up for size with a ruler, and as suspected, it was not six inches at all!
“I was duped out of an inch and a half. If I go back again I’ll be taking my trusty ruler.”
Karly says she bought her sandwich from the Honiton Road branch in Exeter, Devon, on Wednesday and then joked about its size on social media.
She jokingly tweeted: “Just got back to the office with my £3.80 “6 inch” @SUBWAY (where I’ve never bought from before) and just bloody look.
“As I thought, not 6 inches at all! I knew I knew my inches. #Rippedoff #Exeter”
Subway has been contacted for a response.
