Customer Dials 911 For Sandwich Emergency

View Comments

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut man has called 911 to complain that a deli fouled up his sandwich order.

The man can be heard on a recording of Wednesday’s call complaining that he “specifically asked for little turkey and little ham, a lot of cheese and a lot of mayonnaise,” and the Grateful Deli in East Hartford got it wrong.

The dispatcher asked the man to verify that he was calling 911 because he didn’t like the way they made his sandwich. The man replied, “Exactly.”

The dispatcher advised him not to buy it.

Deli owner Tila Azinheira  tells WVIT-TV  that the man had placed an order for 14 sandwiches and the deli made them to his specifications.

Azinheira says the man called Thursday to apologize.

No charges have been filed.
