A Cheesteak Without Ketchup Causes Confrontation in Florida
Is there no ketchup in Subway? What else would you put on a cheesesteak?
These are the questions that caused as confrontation and an employee firing, when a man walked into a Subway shop in Orlando FLA and wanted the tomato condiment on his sandwich.
Luis Martinez, who’s from South Jersey, stopped for a Philly cheesesteak at Subway located within a Walmart and asked Lawrence Ordone for his sandwich with American cheese, onions and ketchup. It was the last ingredient that led to a dispute. Ordone, the Subway sandwich artist, told Martinez they do not carry ketchup. Angry words and obscenities were exchanged and Ordone, after feeling there could be a possible gun threat, moved from behind the counter to block Martinez from leaving. Martinez asserts that Ordone then threatened to kill him, which Ordone denies. Martinez called 911 and by the time police arrived the employee had already left. Ordone was later fired from Subway. There were no physical injuries and no arrests were made but police may refer the case to the State Attorney’s Office to determine if Ordone will be prosecuted.
So what we learn from this is that ketchup in Subway, doesn’t pass muster, but you can pass the mustard! What are some of the things that you love to put ketchup on?
