You've probably heard about the phenomenon of malicious compliance, which may be intentional or purely accidental. The logic is simple: you follow the rules way too directly and you end up conforming to the request, but not its spirit. Almost always, it results in hilarious accidents and you can check them out in Bored Panda’s previous compilation.

But this time we are getting delicious, and correct me if I’m wrong, but if there's food involved, the absurdity level is likely to increase ten times. From asking for extra pepperoni and being served every single pepperoni in the world to mistyping 12-inch pizza and getting a solid 1-inch treat, these are the real incidents that could have happened to me and you.

"Be careful what you wish for" has never sounded so hangry!

It seems like there’s no big deal in going to a restaurant, sitting down, and ordering yourself a feast. But unfortunately, things can turn sour really fast and there are some rights you should know about that the waiter will likely not tell you.

First of all, food in restaurants should always be of a nice, decent (well, at least satisfactory) quality. Most importantly, it should be safe to eat and it should match the description on the menu. If you feel like your meal fails to meet the standards, you should first report the problem, and second, you are entitled to claim a refund.

Second, if you feel like the quality of service is low, you should report it to the manager and refuse to pay the service charge. Again, remember that you should have a legit reason for doing so, and simply not liking your waiter doesn’t qualify as one.

And third, any establishment which is licensed—and which serves alcohol—has to give free tap water. Meanwhile, restaurants that are not licensed to sell alcohol may even charge you for this, since it’s considered a part of service.

Fun fact: Standard Japanese does not differentiate between singular and plural, so 'egg' and 'eggs' are no different.

fuggnuggins

Neither did the customer differentiate. On a side note, I was working as a breakfast chef at a cafe and the other chef had the idea to give three eggs as a standard serve to try and boost sales. The craziness of trying to poach 30+ eggs at a time aside, a guy comes in and orders a standard breakfast (w/ 3 eggs, chorizo, 2 bacon rashers, tomato, mushrooms, spinach and toast) and asks for 10 extra eggs. Clean plate returned. Dunno how he did it. More than three and my body revolts.

I can never get the eggs I cook to look like that. I tried following guides and videos, still the yolk is fully cooked. If someone could give me advice on what worked for them, I would really appreciate it.

Vicky Zar

First take eggs out of the fridge and let them get to room temperature. Cook water. Wait until its hot. Put eggs in. Small eggs must cook for about 5 minutes or less, medium eggs for about 6 minutes, large eggs for 7 minutes. When the time is up, put them straight into cold water.
