Hartford, Connecticut – A crazy guy went into the Grateful Deli and instead of ordering his usual he asked he woman behind the counter to give him less meat on the sandwich and more cheese and mayo instead..
That’s doable right.. The thing is, after the sandwich was made he expected to pay a lot less for the sandwich since they had to use less meat.. He’s joking right..
Tila Azinheira, who owns the deli, said the man placed a phone order for 14 sandwiches and they made them the way he asked.
Then, he did not want to pay for them.
The man Robert McLennon then asks to use their phone to make a phone call.
He then goes outside to use the phone to call 911:
Operator: 9-1-1, what’s your emergency?
Caller: I’m at Grateful Deli and I specifically asked for a little turkey and a little ham — and a lotta cheese and a lotta mayonnaise — and they’re giving me a hard time and I’m wondering if you can just stop by and just —
Operator: Who is this?
Caller: Rother McLennon. I was just wondering if you could just —
Operator: You’re calling 9-1-1 because you don’t like the way they’re making your sandwich?
Operator: Then don’t buy it!
Operator: Just walk away and don’t buy it if they don’t wanna make it the way you want it.
McLennon, who seems to be a regular at the deli, tells her he’s not just calling about this sandwich. He also fears that they won’t make his sandwich to his specific request in the future.
“I mean, I just want to solve this the right way,” he said. “Her sister made it, but she left. They are playing games with me, so I was just wondering if you could come by,” he said. “I just want it resolved and I want to be able to come back here and get the regular sandwich that I ask for.”
Police have not filed charges.
