The angry man called police complaining that his missus expected him to cover the entire bill, and was refusing to pay her share of the meal.
And while splitting the bill certainly happens between friends and maybe couples in the early months of dating, it’s incredibly rare to see married couples carrying on the same way.
Forget chow mein - that’s just chow mean!
Despite the ridiculous call, police attended to the scene and spoke to man - not to sort out his problems with his wife, but to remind him that the Triple Zero line is strictly for emergencies only. Good call!
'Police are unsure of who eventually paid for the remainder of the succulent Chinese meal,' North Shore Police Area Command said in a statement.
