I'm a 20-something Masters' student in the healthcare field. I'm currently interning at a hospital. Across the street from the hospital is a Subway. I walk in and order a 6-inch Meatball Marinara sub.

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....

Actually, there's approximately 480 calories in a 6' meatball marinara sub from Subway. It's not that terrible, as you could have gotten in your car and driven to a Mcdonalds.

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.

Who knows, it's one of those mysteries. Maybe it's one of your choices or maybe he is a socially awkward dude who is bad at interacting with people. Does it really matter?

Ain't no doubt about that. She probably would've had her legs buckling the moment she turned around!

Probably just a nerd trying to make conversation.

There's a joke in here with "balls" and "6-in" and "foot-long".

No one can really interpret it for you.

My friend and I were at a juice place when a guy came up to her and said, "you look hungry." She is overweight and took it as an insult but after she told him how rude he was, he clarified that he just wanted to buy her something. He did and walked away.

He was probably just trying to strike a conversation with a stranger to pass time, unless he was giving you a googly eyed stare the entire time.
