Man dials 911 over deli dispute

EAST HARTFORD, Conn., June 16 (UPI) -- A man unhappy with the way a deli in East Hartford, Conn., prepared a sandwich for him tried to bring in the police to settle the matter, a dispatch call shows.

Rother McLennon called 911 Wednesday afternoon and told the emergency dispatcher he had asked the staff at Greatful Deli "for little turkey, and little ham, a lot of cheese and a lot of mayonnaise and they are giving me a hard time," WVIT-TV, Hartford, reported.

"I wonder if you can stop by and just …," he said.

The dispatcher said, "You're calling 911 because you don't like way that they're making your sandwich?"

"Exactly," he replied.

"So, then, don't buy it," she advised.

Deli owner Tila Azinheira told the television station the man had placed a phone order for 14 sandwiches and they were made the way he requested. However, he then did not want to pay for them.

Azinheira said the customer was told the sandwiches could not be taken back because they were special orders. That's when he used the deli's phone to call 911.

The deli owner said McLennon called the shop back the next day to apologize and say he would remain a customer.
