2. Be cheeky and ask for more

OK, so it sounds obnoxious and some people say it's bad manners to complain about your food in a restaurant, but if you do there is a high chance you might get away without having to pay for your meal or at least get a free dessert. We're not suggesting you pretend there's a fly in your soup or hair on your pizza when there isn't, but if there is a genuine problem with your meal you don't have to suffer in silence, nor should you have to pay for it. Just do it nicely, or you may get a nasty surprise in your dinner. It's not just restaurants that might pay up for bad service — one woman recently claimed she has made more money from complaining about poor customer service to banks and phone and electrical companies than she has from her job.
