Sending food back at restaurants and the bill
I was at a fine dining establishment. The entree I ordered was appallingly bad - overcooked and under-seasoned. Other people in my party who ordered the same dish seemed to be enjoying it, they're busily eating away with no concerns raised. I was just picking at it cuz it was unenjoyable. I'm hesitant about saying something, wasn't sure if i was being overly demanding. Finally near the end of the meal, I had about 1/3 of the dish remaining, I said something to the server. Just a comment regarding the quality and clearly showed them what was amiss. They were understanding and took the remaining back to the kitchen. Was not expecting the entree to be comped. Surprisingly when the bill came, they took off my entree which was nice of them.
However, at that time, the other people in the group decideed to jump on board to say they felt exactly the same way about their entrees, that it was dry, didnt taste good, etc, even though they polished off their whole plate and never said anything until that point. They wanted us all (3 of us) to split the 2 entrees equally.
At the time I went along and didn't think anything of it, but upon further reflection, I felt like an ***** being the only person in the table to make a fuss about my dish. No one else in my group corroborated with me when it counted. But when the 'reward' came, everyone reaped the benefits.
