When do you send back a steak for being under/over cooked?

For steaks and prime rib I'll accept one degree off, plus or minus. So if I order medium rare I'll accept rare or medium. I think this is fair. For hamburgers, when they ask for desired degree of doneness, I ask for pink/medium but usually get medium well or well done. In that case I say nothing and eat them as delivered.
