Luis Martinez stopped at the Subway sandwich shop and ordered this thing they call a Philly Cheesesteak…and he ordered it with ketchup. The Subway worker, Lawrence Ordone, objected.
"That’s when I flew off the handle," said Ordone.
"He shoved a chair to the side, like knocked it down to come at me, and I said, ‘This is going to be serious,’" said Martinez.
"I said, ‘Let’s go, fight me like a man,’" said Ordone.
"I was scared. Next thing, I’m thinking a gun’s going to come out," said Martinez.
Ordone said he blocked the customer so he couldn’t get out.
"He threatened to kill me in front of my wife," said Martinez.
These are important issues that a man should engage in battle over: everyone KNOWS that a true Philly cheesesteak is served with ketchup and fried onions. The abomination that the Subway serves lacks both. And now we have learned that Subway employees are willing to fight to the death to preserve their heresy.
Oh, and American cheese? Pffft. It’s supposed to be Cheez-Whiz.
By the way, Ordone was fired — Subway apparently objects to their employees assaulting customers. They still, however, refuse to serve ketchup.
