Well, the guy who made the sandwich was very generous, but apparently has very bad aim. He front-loaded most of the sweet peppers, and back-loaded most of the hot peppers - meaning as I got towards the end of the sandwich I took a bite and suddenly had 4 or 5 large pieces of hot pepper in my mouth. Oy frickin' vey. I had to polish off my can of coke and go running for water.
So, the moral of the story is: watch the pepper spatial distribution.
