Never did the hair in the food meal, but I did try the fly in the rice story once. We were in a Chinese restaurant and there was a piece of rice that was a little black on one end in the bowl. I called the manager over and told him that he'd cooked a fly. He kept insisting it wasn't a fly I kept insisting it was ... because we'd eaten half the meal he gave us 1/2 off the bill.

No, I'd never ask for a freebie unless something was truly fucked up with the meal.

The other night we went to Applebee's. My friend ordered a Michelob Ultra at the bar and then when we sat down she ordered another. The waiter came back & said they'd run out. So she ordered an MGD & I jokingly told the waiter that she should get it for free. He asked if we wanted to speak to the waiter & I reiterated that I was just joking. Lo & behold, the bill comes & the kid had taken the MGD off. We tipped on full bill though.

I was eating at Chilis once in Texas and pointed out a cockroach on the wall (roaches there are HUGE!). I truly was only bringing it to their attention so that they could take care of their problem.

The manager came and insisted that our meal would be free. I tried to refuse, but he wouldn't accept my argument.

I used to go out to lunch with my boss and he was the biggest asshole ever when it came to food. He'd constantly send food back over the smallest peeve. I can just imagine how much fun they had in the kitchen "fixing" his order.

A few weeks ago I was eating at a cheeburger cheeburger. I was 3/4 dine and I bit down into something hard.

I spit it out and it was a plastic bread bag clip, melted and curled up.

The waitress came over to see how our food was and I told her good until I bit into this, and revealed my prize. she freaked and got the manager and she kept apologizing and took it off the bill. I understand shit happens, so I still tipped well and don't hold anything against the restaurant.

A few years back in Vegas was eating dinner at Rum Jungle in Mandalay Bay with my parents. It was in February and it had rained for three straight days. Halfway through dinner, a small mouse goes running under our table and hides under the booth. :icon_eek: My Dad in his smart ass joking manner was asking about a free meal (even though this mouse was not on the table or food), the manager did not even hesitate, gave us a free meal, free dessert, and two pitchers of cocktails. Did not want the rest of the dining room to raise hell.

i went to this summer camp one year when i was 13. of course, they prepare the same meal for everyone, even finicky eaters like myself. one day for lunch, i believe we were having chili with beans. i hhhhhate beans, so i was already determined not to eat it. but upon further inspection of the meal, i noticed a massive hair right in the middle of it. i sat there refusing to eat the garbage, and now i had good reason aside from my own picky diet. the counselors tried getting me to eat it, but i stubbornly refused, not even so much as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which they had made other kids who didn't like the other food they were serving. the assholes wouldn't even go to the kitchen to get me something else. so i had nothing to eat for the rest of the day.
