Man calls 911 on deli after receiving wrong sandwich in Connecticut

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — A man angry that a deli had fouled up his sandwich order decided to take his beef to police.

The man, identified by police as Rother McLennon of East Hartford, called 911 on Wednesday and complained 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.

"You're calling 911 because you don't like way that they're making your sandwich?" the dispatcher asked.

"Exactly," McLennon replied.

I live in a small town, and our small town newspaper prints all the 911 calls under the heading Boone Beat (I live in Boone County)

Yesterday's highlight? "Caller reports family members are fighting and disrupting a funeral he is conducting at Memory Gardens."

I think the life of a small-town 911 dispatcher must be VERY interesting.

so, I'm going to assume they will be charging him with public mischief and he'll be paying a minimum fine of, say, $5,000 since he misused emergency services and potentially endangered other lives ...

my lunch order is wrong probably 3 out of 5 days
