Don't pull out a gun just because you weren't happy with your sandwhich.
Police responded to a South Euclid fast food restaurant Tuesday, after an extremely unhappy patron threatened to shoot a restaurant employee. All this because the sandwich the man ordered was supposedly not made up to snuff.

When police arrived on the scene, they found the man in the restricted area of the kitchen trying to "deal" with the employee whom he believed ruined his sandwich. Police arrested the uncooperative man, whom employees described as "acting crazy," and charged him with aggravated menacing.

Thankfully, just in case you forget how to act when someone messes up your fast food order, the South Euclid Police Department later issued some safety tips on its Facebook page. You can read the full list and statement below.
What to do, when you're not satisfied with your food at local fast food restaurants.
1. Remain calm
2. Act Rational
3. Don't make comments you will regret later
4. Don't take matters into your hands
5. When the police arrive be cooperative
Yesterday SEPD received a call from an employee of a local fast food restaurant reporting that an irate male stormed into the restaurant acting crazy. He yelled that he had a gun and was going to shoot someone. He entered the restricted area of the kitchen to "deal" with who he suspected prepared his food. When police arrived the male was very irate and extremely uncooperative. The male had ordered a sandwich and was not satisfied with the way it tasted. The male was arrested and charged with aggravated menacing. We hope he realizes at hotel SEPD we do not take special orders.
