A customer's request to put ketchup on a Philly cheesesteak caused a ruckus in an Orlando Subway shop.

Sandwich maker Lawrence Ordone told customer Luis Martinez that Subway doesn't have ketchup when the order was placed on New Year's night. There are differing accounts on what happened next, but Orlando television station WFTV reported Ordone lost his job.

Ordone said he told the customer he's "never put ketchup on anybody's sandwich." He then said Martinez got "mouthy." Martinez denies that, but Ordone admitted he flew off the handle at that point.

WFTV reported Ordone shoved a chair to the side and told Martinez "fight me like a man."

Martinez called 911. Ordone left the building. No one was arrested. But now Ordone is looking for a new job.
