An American man has called 911 to complain about a wrong sandwich order.
Rother McLennon rang the emergency services because he was not satisfied with the sandwiches that he had been given.
The phone operator who answered the call was baffled by what McLennon was saying and told him not to purchase the sandwich if he wasn't happy with it.
McLennon told the dispatcher: "They are playing games with me, so I was just wondering if you could come by."
The man made the call while standing in the Grateful Deli in East Hartford, Connecticut because he wanted to solve the problem straight away.
Tila Azinheira, the owner of the deli, claimed that McLennon made an order for 14 sandwiches but then refused to pay for them after seeing them in the shop.
McLennon says: "I specifically asked for little turkey, and little ham, a lot of cheese and a lot of mayonnaise and they are giving me a hard time."
The shop owner said that he couldn't take them back and make new ones, prompting McLennon to call the emergency services.
Since the incident, McLennon has apologised to the deli and said that he plans to take his custom there again in the future. > Man vs Giant Meaty Sandwich - pictures> Tesco launches limited 'Lasandwich'
