    amazing... he could have turned that into a great opportunity for some free PR that would have had everyone thinking they were great into something that makes him look like a putz - and all over $34

    How ridiculous. Like Greg said, they could have used the free water fact as positive PR whereas now they look like a heartless company who only cares about profit.

    Name a corporation that isn't heartless and cares about something other than money.

    I can name a fair and decent company, Richer Sounds, they have solid environmental policies and give lots to charity.

    So good that those employees wanted to help out like that. I hope the prick of an owner loses his Subway Franchise over this one. Kick the bum out. I imagine Subway is none too impressed with this pathetic attitude and the negative PR this is causing. I'm sure they're in "discussions" with him now.

    All these multi-nationals that don't give a damn about anyone but themselves stink in my books, they should realise that unless they do their part to help the environment and people that soon their won't be any customers left to make money from.

    You could understand if it cost him $3400, but a few cases of water arent going to put him out of business
