Would you have eaten it?

The other day I ordered a Monte-Crisco sandwich. I opted to get mine with onion rings. When the meal arrived there were no onion rings. Figuring that I really didn't need that calories, and the place was busy. I opted to not worry about it and let the rings go. A woman tables over also ordered a Monte-Crisco. When hers arrived it had onion rings. She proclaimed the over sight to her table and waited five minutes or so for the waitress. The waitress got the sandwich and approached me. 'you wanted onion rings didn't you?' Before I could answer she had left. thirty seconds later the onion rings, now on a new plate reappeared on my table.

Clearly they had been transfered from the other woman's plate. I never saw her eat one or even touch them but the idea of eating (now cold) food that had once been sitting on a strangers plate really did not appeal to me.

Has this ever happened to anyone and if so what did you do?
