Some southern observations...looking at you, Subway.

So, in Ohio, Subway has these reward cards.  Every time you buy something, points accumulate.  I've had my subway card for years.  YEARS.  I had racked up, and used, a ton of points over those years.  There have been quite a few free subs in my past!  Last time I checked, I had lot of points sitting there waiting for redemption. Look at this beauty:

My actual subway card, in all its glory!

So, imagine my surprise when I stopped into Subway for lunch a  few weeks ago, handed over my subway card, and heard "there's no money on this".  It went like this:

Subway girl (SG): There's no money on here, ma'am.
Me: Oh, I know.  I wanted to use it for points?
SG: *blank stare*
Me: umm, y'all do points down here, right?
SG: (hollering to another employee) hey, do we do "points" here?
Me: *hopeful gaze*
Other SG: points? no?
SG: (back to me) no.
Me: Is it because my card has the Ohio State logo on it?
SG: *blank stare*
Me: Ok, nevermind then...

Is this real?  Am I destined to pay for all of my subs from here on out?  I did not sign up for that. I'll get over it...eventually.  There are plenty of other sandwich shops down here.   I'll find a new love.
