What is the furthest you would take your anger for a botched sandwich order?

It’s happened to all of us before, but would you ever call 911 over the dispute?

That is what a Connecticut man decided to make the call, because he was not happy with the way the Greatful Deli in East Hartford prepped his order.

According to NBC Connecticut, the man had reportedly ordered 14 sandwiches, saying he “specifically asked for little turkey and little ham, a lot of cheese and a lot of mayonnaise,” and the deli had gotten it wrong.

The Greatful Deli contends that the man had ordered 14 sandwiches, and they had made them the way he asked.

At one point, the 911 dispatcher asked the man to verify that he was, in fact, calling 911 over a sandwich.

He replied, “Exactly.”

The deli would not take back the “special orders,” which is one of the things that set off the phone call.

No charges have been filed.
