Mr. Sub Update

Mr. Sub quickly put Mrs. Ub out of business

I forgot about Mr. Sub as the months quickly passed. Summer is changing to autumn, and I thought I'd better get this update posted before it starts to snow. The earliest snow I can remember happened on my birthday, in the middle of October. But I digress...

Back in July I posted about Mr. Sub's inappropriate new sign, which was quite hilarious. If you remember, the 'M' and the 'S' were both burned out, creating another word which had nothing to do with submarine sandwiches, and more to do with massage parlours.

A few weeks ago I decieded to re-visit the restaurant, and interview the people working that day.

When I entered, the first thing I did was order a foot-long Tuna sub. After some small-talk about green peppers, I inquired about the sign. "So I noticed your sign isn't working right. How long has it been burned out for?" The dude behind the counter replied, "That sign has been giving us trouble since the day we opened, about 2 years ago." I found that to be surprising. Why haven't I noticed it before? Probably because I don't usually drive by it at night, when it's lit up. He told me how they had the sign repaired many, many times, and each time the repairs didn't fix the problem.

"You know it says RUB, right?" I asked. He smiled. "Yeah, everybody's been talking about that. But tonight is the final test. It's supposed to be fully repaired, so it should be working tonight." He finished wrapping up my sub, his gold chains glinting in the sunshine.

I drove by a few nights later and noticed the bright red sign - it WAS working! I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Sub for getting their sign fixed, and to thank all the Mr. Sub fans. Without you and your money, none of this would be possible.

Yeah, but will business drop off now? I can imagine they had a few drunken horned up guys who came in for a rub and were too embarassed to admit it. They bought a sub and went home.

That place was doing a service for marriages in the area. Without their "rub" the guys ahd to go home and patch things up with the wife so they could get some action. Now they'll to find another place to get their"rub" and if it actually is one, then it's all over for some people (icky innuendo).
