Thanks, But I Prefer a MA’AM-wich Post Revisited


I was checking out and I came across a news story about a man who had an unfortunate experience at his local Subway restaurant…  seems they couldn’t get his sandwich the way he wanted, so he called 911 for help – not once, not twice, but 3 times.  It reminded me of the time I ranted on my blog about how I prefer sub sandwiches made by women, but apparently this fellow would not agree.  Check out my original post here.

And here is the summary of the man’s Subway mishap; scroll down for the link to the actual 911 calls he made:

Florida man busted for calling 911 over improperly prepared sandwich

AUGUST 5–If you’re wondering what the guy who called 911 to complain about his Subway sandwiches looks like, well, meet Reginald Peterson. The 42-year-old Florida man became so upset last Thursday when a pair of subs “did not include ‘everything’ as he had requested,” he called Jacksonville cops “so that the police could have his sandwich made to his specifications,” according to a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office report. Peterson, pictured in the below mug shot, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of placing false 911 calls. A Subway employee told cops that an irate Peterson was “screaming at everyone in the business” because a worker could not seem to rectify the sandwich problem. As for the fate of the Subway grub, the sheriff’s report notes, “The sandwiches were placed in a trash can at the suspect’s request.”

  1. LOL…. I wonder whose phone he used to call on. Did Subway allow him to use the phone at the restaurant? Could this be on an upcoming episode of Cops?

  2. Perhaps he wanted to become the new spokesperson for Subway. His mug shot would not have won me over. I have not seen Jared for a while… maybe he has packed on a few too many pounds and was fired.

  3. Didn’t quite understand the meaning of “emergency.”

    Speaking of spokespersons, remember when Quiznos used those spong-monkeys? I never did figure out how they were supposed to attract customers- drive them away was more likely. In any event, the two I knew about near me closed several months ago. Obviously nothing to do with the old campaign since it was several years ago.
