How many "Bad clams" do you put up with, before you complain to Management? Is the next day "Too late"?

I bought a large fried whole bellied clam plate at my favorite clam shack last weekend. Out of the approximately 20 clams 7 were spawning, and tasted like… well… crap, I was upset and called the manager in the morning (I was on a date and didn't want to upset a perfect day, it was literally a wonderfully perfect day, except that meal) I would not have even called but seriously when you are paying $20 for a dinner and you cannot eat 40% of it, that is reason to complain. When I told my best friend she said "I would never call the next day, that is just silly, how do they know you are not lying?" I told her "easy, I gave him the name on the credit card receipt, and the bill amount and the time we dined.
She thinks I should have let sleeping dogs lie, but I can't, not when the sleeping dog taste like what comes out of it when it is not sleeping!

He comped me a large fried clam plate for next time, but i might wait a couple weeks for the clams to stop spawning…..
