Ever get comp'ed for service faux pas or weirdness

There's been a few threads here about bad service, comp'ing the customer or about how comp'ing helps a service faux pas. On that note, any stories? Full meal, drinks, dessert? Any weirdness/ Did it redeem the restaurant in your eyes? Did you go back?

I'll start. Nothing earth shaking. Once my doggie bag was tossed. When I asked for it they realized the mistake and comp'ed the meal. Nice response but the meal was only okay, hence the doggie bag. Another they ran out of an ingredient and finally had to serve me something else after some slow service Definately redeemed the experience but I liked the place any way.
