“You’re calling 911 because you don’t like way that they’re making your sandwich?”

Usually these calls to 911 come from McDonald’s. Now they’re coming from delis.

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.

McLennon explained that that the person he was talking to at the deli was not the person who made the sandwich and was refusing to fix the problem.

“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. I just want it resolved and I want to be able to come back here and get the regular sandwich that I ask for.”

Before ending the call, the dispatcher advised him not to buy the sandwich.

Maybe next time he should call Obama.

    I’m trying to figure out whether this is an example of yet another person who thinks that government is the solution to all problems big and small, or if he’s simply stuck on stupid. But I repeat myself.

    It seems more and more people actually believe their govt. will take care of all their problems, no matter how small. It’s Obama’s dream come true: a populace that can’t survive without him.

    That’s it? The cops didn’t take him out back and beat the stupid out of him? If Chief Wiggum was choking on a doughnut while this tool was tying up 911 it would be a different story.
