Do you have any experience that strange thing in your soup, which you thought it was raisin, happens to be fly?
That's happened to one of my colleague on lunch today. He ordered a his favorite fried Singapore Mee Hoon at our usual restaurant. When the food arrived, he ate very fast because he said he was very hungry. Although he found a strange thing on half way eating, which he thought was a vegetable branch, he picked it out and kept on going. When he almost finished, one of my colleague start noticing the "branch" he picked aside. To my colleague's shock – and some laugh, it was a 3 inch red color pencil. The victim started to examine the pencil, it proved to be a red color pencil because there were red marks on the plate. It wasn't so obvious in the beginning due the food color has a mild red coloring, until my colleague sat next to him found out.
Other colleague suggest to take photos on the food using their camera, just in case the shop owner does not want to bear the responsibility. After the food was shown to the waiter, he apologized on behalf of the kitchen staff and treated us the lunch. As for my poor colleague, he got a free fruit dessert from one of us as a token of kindness.
