Subway Sandwich Guy Refuses To Put Ketchup on a Cheesesteak, Gets Fired

Lawrence Ordone lost his job, but he kept his honor. When asked by a customer to make him a steak sandwich with American cheese, onion, and ketchup, Subway sandwich creator Ordone flat-out refused. “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.” Then, he self-admittedly “flew off the handle,” challenged the customer to a fight, and told him to “go buy your own ketchup.” Hey Lawrence, if you need work, Geno’s is always looking for employees to berate customers who don’t know how to order.

    Sorry, you have no honor or Philly cred to begin with if you work or eat at Subway. Who would even care if you want ketchup on a cheesesteak as long as it is a legit steak.
