Heart attacks, being shivved, sandwiches, all the proper reasons for calling 911

A man in East Hartford decided that the best way to get his sandwiches made the exact way he wanted was by calling 911.


“I specifically asked for a little turkey and a little ham and a lot of cheese and a lot of mayonnaise and they’re giving me a hard time,” Rother McLennon told a 911 dispatcher Wednesday.

The dispatcher, Heather Clayton, incredulously asked, “You’re calling 911 because you don’t like the way that they’re making your sandwich?”

While at a deli, the man asked for 14 sandwiches to be made with a lesser amount of meat, but adding on the cheese, hopefully lessening the price. This resulted in him requesting to use the in-deli phone to call emergency services over it. Despite this, no charges were filed. I feel like the cops may be missing out on an easy way to fatten the city’s pockets and teach someone a lesson.
