IIN I find it hard to order vinegar because of how it sounds?
Favorited (undo) 15 Comments

I always get this awkward feeling whenever I get to the end of my subway or mike subs sandwich order and have to say "oil & vinegar" at the end. I sometimes add oregano so "vinegar" won't be the last thing I said. It gets worse if the person making my sandwich is black or looks black. I make sure to stress the "egar" instead of an "i" sound, but it doesn't help at all! I get so nervous that half the time I don't get vinegar on my sandwich, and then it doesn't taste as good. Also whenever I want hot sauce on my philly cheese steak, I find it hard to say if the person making it looks latino. Somehow I'm okay going into sushi places and ordering from the chefs, I guess because they expect me to get sushi.

So say 'sub sauce', that's what a lot of people call oil+vinegar. Plus if they aren't sure what you're talking about they'll usually say 'do you mean oil+vinegar?' Then you can just say 'yup'. Hope that helps!

Sub sauce? Never heard of that wording. I'll try it even though the fear of them not understanding is pretty painful.

I know. I kind of have the same problem when I order a coffee at Mcd's and tell the black person behind the counter that I want it black. It sort of makes me feel a little funny.
