Man Charged With Sandwich Rage in Houston

Dec 10, 9:38 AM (ET)

HOUSTON (AP) - Road rage? Try restaurant rage. A 34-year-old man apparently angry that his $6 steak and cheese sandwich was too cold was arrested on a charge of threatening to kill the restaurant manager Wednesday.

Police said the manager offered to reheat Devlin B. Nelson's sandwich or make him a new one when he complained. Authorities allege he instead demanded a refund, threw the sandwich at the manager, then threatened to kill her and blow up the restaurant.

Nelson, a Houston public works employee, has been relieved of his duties pending the outcome of the investigation. He remained in custody Thursday.

I'll bet that the manager had put "special sauce" on the sandwich.

I saw a similar thing happen at Burger King about 35 years ago when I was early teen on vacation in California.

I think the guy was drunk and/or stoned. They laughed at him and threw him out.

wow have times changed.
