You've probably heard of malicious compliance, an occurrence when people take the rules given in the most direct manner, and they end up fulfilling the request way too literally. We previously made a curious list about such entertaining instances that you can check out right here.

But this time, we are giving malicious compliance a foodie treatment, and we are gonna look at what happens when the subject of request is your food order. Take hangry people, witty chefs, and hilarious miscommunication and mix it all together, and here you go, you just encountered delicious compliance.

After you’re done scrolling through this punny compilation, make sure to check out part 1 right here, and hit us in the comments if you've ever been served something like that!

Malicious compliance is the term used to describe when someone takes a superior's orders literally, knowing and intending that compliance may have unintended or negative results. Usually, it’s intentional, but sometimes it’s purely accidental. Delicious compliance is a spin-off of this occurrence and it involves food orders.

Anyhow, such compliance has to do with our mode of thinking, or rather the lack of it. What happens if we take things too literally? Is it possible to take them too literally? Very often we take something at its face value simply to avoid the burden of thinking. Just like agreeing with an idea because it’s an easy way out. Or we interpret it in a way that aligns with our ideas, beliefs and values.

Where on the order form is there even an option for "extra crust"? Because if you click "xtra cheese" there's a charge, they wouldn't give it to you if you just typed it in the "special instructions" part....I guess I just don't know how someone could do this, even if they WERE high as T-tits

No wonder the result is often unpleasant if the process lacks the process of thinking and reflecting upon the situation. We get used to getting orders and being told what to do, especially at work. Bluntly complying with orders also limits our potential to understand how things work, so it stops the potential for progress.

Most importantly, thinking before acting and measuring its consequences will help to reduce breakdowns in communication so that we can all be more open and willing to not just do what we’re told, but to do what’s best in a given situation. And this makes a whole lot of difference!

Your grandma seems to fix food like my Grandma used to do. I used to go over at mealtimes only because she wanted to feed me so much, and she would say, "Now in the fridge, I have........ and then in the freezer, there's some x, y and z." When I went to see her in the hospital, the nurses brought her a small (half-sized can of) coke. She was like, "Would you split my coke with me?" "In the drawer are some cookies your Mom brought me." I couldn't believe it. She managed to feed me even while she was in the hospital. This picture reminded me of such fond memories!
