There was a time in the mid-90s when I was a 'Sandwich Artist'. I used to work at Subway back when we would ask, "White or Wheat?" We would then slice the bread in a v-cut and ask what you wanted on your sandwich. The beauty of the V-cut is that it seemed to hold everything in place more than just doing the horizontal slice as they do now.

I'm not sure why they changed and never really questioned it but, when I was at Subway last night, I asked the guy behind the counter if people ever request it. He said he has had maybe 3 or 4 requests in the past 5 years he worked there. I asked if he could for me, or if anyone could. The subway employee said that many of the newer workers probably don't even know about it, but it doesn't hurt to ask. He did for me and I thanked him by buying myself some cookies - or that was my excuse, anyways.

So, if you miss the Subway V-cut as much as I did, simply ask for it and see if they can accommodate that task for you - free of charge. You'll still have to buy the sandwich, though.
