These People Didn’t Exactly Get What They Asked for

You may have 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.

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

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, below you can see the real incidents that could have happened to me and you.
