This is a question Crap meals out

I'd chosen to take my in-laws to one of my favourite restaurants, only to discover it had changed hands the week before. We waited half an hour to get menus. The waitress broke the cork in the wine we ordered. She got our order wrong. The food was luke-warm, mine was overcooked, the rest was undercooked. After waiting another 40 minutes for the last course, we were told that we couldn't have any as the chef had "forgotten to de-frost the puddings".

Let's just say they didn't get a tip. Tell us of your crap meals out.

It's a bit of a chestnut
but several years ago, on a nice family sunday lunch out at a posh hotel nearby, I had got halfway through my chicken salad starter only to find a slug, still very much alive, on a half-eaten piece of lettuce.
The waiter told us that he was surprised, as the lettuce had been frozen (can you really freeze lettuce?) and washed.

Still. the puddings were free.

Incidentally, last year we went back again, and the man on the table next to us, eating alone, was dressed as hitler (complete with mustache, beige shirt and shorts, socks pulled up and side parting hair). He looked terrifyingly like der Fuhrer, I'll have to dig out the photo taken not-very-subtly on my phone.

Mod-Edit: Ooh, yes please. Stick it here instead of this edit :)
