Bad deli service? Just call the cops…

Rother McLennon, of East Hartford Connecticut, is not to be messed with when it comes to making his deli sandwiches properly!  He specifically asked for “little turkey and little ham, a lot of cheese and a lot of mayonnaise.”  Apparently, those at the Grateful Deli in East Hartford did not follow his directions to a T ~ and he chose to call 911 and request assistance in handling this matter.


The dispatcher remained calm through out the call, and managed to calm Rother down as well… explaining to him that no matter how far from what you asked for the sandwich is, it is still no reason to dial 911.  She advises him to not buy the sandwich ~ but Rother fears that in the future they won’t make his sandwich how he asks either.  As it turns out, he placed an order for fourteen sandwiches and then wanted to refuse payment.  The matter was resolved, no charges were filed against either party, and Rother has since apologized to the deli workers and assured them he’ll be in in the furutre for more sandwiches.  We’ll assume that they’ll be overjoyed to see his return!
