What some people consider an emergency, others may well not agree with them– at all!
Case in point: On Wednesday a Connecticut man called 911 to complain that a deli messed 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 advised him not to buy it.
Azinheira says the man called Thursday to apologize.
No charges have been filed.
Our question is, should people be reprimanded for wasting valuable time and resources on the mundane?
