A man at a Connecticut deli was so upset about his botched sandwich order, he called 911 to complain and asked the authorities to intervene ASAP.

“Um, hi. My name is Rother McLennon and I’m at Grateful Deli,” he told the dispatcher.

“I specifically asked for um little um, turkey, and little um ham and a lot of cheese and a lot of mayonnaise…and they are giving me a hard time.”

“I was wondering if you could stop by and just…”

Man Calls 911 Over Sandwich Order

That’s when the dispatcher responds in disbelief, asking, “You’re calling 911 because you don’t like the way they’re making your sandwich?”

“Exactly,” McLennon answers.

CBS New York reported that the 911 dispatcher calmly advised the upset caller to not buy the sandwich in question and to exit the store.

“He’s telling me he won’t make it for me again, just because of that,” McLennon pleads. “So, I just want to solve this the right way, you know?”

“They playing games with me. So, I’m just wondering if you could come by?”

After what sounds like a scoff and a very long pause, the dispatcher tells the disgruntled customer, “Just stay there, or stay outside, I’ll send somebody.”

“In the future, just don’t buy the sandwich, ok?”
