Fired over a sandwich?

A cafeteria worker in Washington D.C. was fired apparently after he served Indiana Congressman Mark Souder a toasted sandwich, instead of a grilled one.

A spokesman for Souder says the Congressman never complained about his sandwich and never asked that the worker be fired.

But someone else must have noticed the slight error, because the worker lost his job.

"I don't think grilled or toasted, should be a reason someone loses their job," said Rep. Robert Brady, of the House Administration Committee.

Cafeteria officials say the man was let go because he was not needed anymore, not because of the sandwich mistake.

And just in case you were wondering, there is a difference between toasted and grilled—butter spread before cooking means it is grilled; butter on afterwards makes it toasted.
