ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WTHR) — This gives "footlong" a whole different meaning.

A woman posted a photo on Facebook of a worker at a Subway restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan with his shoes and socks off, and his feet up on the counter near the food preparation area.

Tara Williams told the Ann Arbor News she was "appalled" at the sight.

"Quite disgusting!" she wrote in her Facebook post. "I'm sure the health department would have an issue with this."

The Facebook post has been shared 10,000 times, and the health department got a word of it and visited the restaurant. They ensured the area was properly sanitized and gave tips on how to avoid the same thing from happening in the future.

The worker in the photo said he made a mistake at the end of a long day.

"Everyone has their long days, but you have to abide by the rules," Williams said.

The health department said the restaurant had good reports from its twice-a-year unexpected visits, and there were no violations in December.
