OMG, the unwashed masses dared to talk to me when I just crossed the street from the castle where I'm studying to be a princess.

It's pretty random.

My guess was that he was doing that guy thing where they try to impress you with how they know everything about everything. In other words, hitting on you.

But it could be that his baby sister just died from heart disease.

If an exceptionally good-looking man had that same conversation with me, my thought would still be "WTF. Go away."

There is a man, probably in his 30s, standing behind me in line. Never seen him before in my life. He's not wearing a badge from the hospital I'm interning at, but is dressed professionally in a dress shirt and khakis. He's not bad-looking, not amazing-looking, either.

Well, he says to me: "I don't know if I should tell you this, but.....the Meatball Marinara is one of the unhealthiest things at Subway."

I smile and say as politely as I can: "Really?!? Huh....Well, I'm on a food vacation, if you will."

Then the man goes: "Oh, I probably shouldn't have told you that...."

Then the convo awkwardly ends.


What in the world?!? I know full well that there are 203987283739829832873 calories in a Meatball Marinara. It looked delicious. Was this a horrible attempt to hit on me? Does he just have horrendous social skills? Or is he genuinely concerned for my well-being, since we were across from the hospital, anyway?

I'm curious....
Just being a nosy a-hole IMO.

I would have ordered two foot long Subway Melts and loaded them up like I usually do then just to irritate him/people like that.

I don't give a rip....I'll sweat it out/off tomorrow.

Right... because all women are shallow doormats with no self-respect. Yes, if he's good-looking it doesn't matter that he just failed at his attempt to make conversation and half insulted her...she would still throw herself at him

I'd have told him that if it's that bad, should've ordered a foot long just to make him even more weirded out.
Healthy is not just about calories.

You know that, right?
