This is a question Little Victories

I recently received a £2 voucher from a supermarket after complaining vociferously about the poor quality of their own-brand Rich Tea biscuits, which I spent on more tasty, tasty biscuits. Tell us about your trivial victories that have made life a tiny bit better.

It's worth bearing in mind...
...that they can usually refuse to serve you at all for any reason, which they don't have to disclose to you.

I think I'm saving this for the situation where I've had to wait so long that they might as well have refused to serve me

In that case, I usually say: OK, give me my bill and I'll leave. And at that point you have just won because you weren't going to buy anything more anyway, or else why would you have made a fuss about the minimum?

I went to a bar once, and didn't notice the $20 minimum sign, and wanted to leave after 1 drink. After they refused to cash me out, I said: you can either give me my bill and I will cheerfully pay and leave, or I can call the police and tell them you have stolen my card. I got my card back instantly.
