A Slovenian lawmaker stepped down on his post recently after stealing a sandwich from a supermarket because he was disgusted for being ignored by staff.

In a report by Agence France-Presse, Darij Krajcic, a member of parliament for the Marjan Sarec List (LMS) party, the senior partner in the ruling coalition, said he walked off the supermarket without paying because three supermarket employees had “treated (him) like air” and continued chatting.

“I must have stood some three minutes by the counter,” he told private POP TV.

Krajcic, however, insisted that he returned shortly afterwards to pay for the sandwich. But he apologized and resigned from parliament.

Brane Golubovic, the head of LMS’ parliamentary faction, condemned Krajcic’s actions as “unacceptable,” saying the MP “has to bear the responsibility, in line with LMS’ high ethical standards.”
