Like many office workers I don't take in sandwiches made at home, but prefer instead to buy one either from the local shop or the company run deli bar. Unfortunately I'm finding that I am increasingly dissatisfied with what is on offer and how much it costs.
My complaint is about two things really, first the cost and secondly what you actually get for your money. Depending on where you buy it a sandwich or baguette will cost between two and four pounds which I think isn't great value really.The dearer ones are in actually fact usually tasty and often very satisfying but having to hand over that much cash just leaves a bad after taste.
With the cheaper ones you'll either end up with a couple of limp bits of dodgy looking wholemeal bread and some thin and less than appetizing filling, or even worse the lettuce monster!!!
I think it's the lettuce monster that I hate the most. Why is it that sandwiches these days have to be 'filled out' with lettuce and salad stuff? Do they think that cramming the bread full of this cheap green stuff can really cover up the fact that there isn't really much of a sandwich there in the first place? Maybe the whole world bought into this healthy crap but I sure haven't and I'd rather see a couple of decent chunks of bread filled with something substantial.
You might well say that I should just make sandwiches at home and bring them in if Im not happy with what is on offer. Fair comment actually, however, the whole reason I don't is because I don't usually have the time to make them either the night before or in the morning. Besides, I'm not exactly organised enough to get the extra items with the shopping and you could say Im a bit lazy so I guess the only choice is to cough up, eat up and shut up!
