Ketchup on cheesesteak request causes ruckus
Luis Martinez’s order seems like a completely acceptable combination for a cheesesteak, but for Subway employee Lawrence Ordone, ketchup was not an option.
“He wants ketchup on the Philly cheese steak and I have never put -- we don't even have ketchup at Subway -- I've never put ketchup on anybody's sandwich," said Ordone in an interview with WFTV, an Orlando-based television station.
After the employee refused to put ketchup on the sandwich, then things really started heating up. Martinez recalled Ordone shoving a chair to the side and was ready to attack the customer.
"I was scared,” Martinez explained. “Next thing, I'm thinking a gun's going to come out.”
Ordone said that he blocked the man from leaving the Subway and said, “Let’s go, fight me like a man.”
As a result of the incident, Ordone was fired from his job at the Orlando Subway that was located in a Wal-Mart.
Again, this all started over ketchup. And, according to Ordone, if Martinez really wanted ketchup that bad, he knew exactly where he could go get it.
"There's ketchup three aisles down. You can go buy your own ketchup,” he added about the request, “and I promise to God, you can put as much as you want on it and nobody's going to say nothing."
