(Newser) – Yet another case of someone calling 911 to complain about food: This time, a Connecticut man called the emergency number after 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 then advised him not to buy it.

The deli owner told local media that the man had placed an order for 14 sandwiches and the deli made them to his specifications, and adds that the man called yesterday to apologize. No charges have been filed. (Read more 911 call stories.)
