Why didn't I listen!??

You're at a restaurant you visit on occasion when you're in the mood for a specific dish which has always been well-prepared; however, when you open the menu, you see a special that really draws you in. When the server comes to take your order, you say that you're considering the special instead of your regular dish. You ask the server their opinion and the server says that they really like your regular dish and does not say anything about the special. So, you ask about the special, again, and the reply, this time, is that a couple people have ordered it this evening but most people have been ordering your regular dish and those customers have been very happy with their meals. You decide to disregard the advice, that you requested, and go ahead and order the special.

Your dish is brought to your table and as your server is walking away, you take a bite. As the taste registers and you realize why only a couple of people had ordered the special, a voice in your head loudly screams out "WHY DIDN'T I LISTEN TO MY SERVER!"

When your server comes back to ask how you're enjoying your meal, do you

A: Maintain your pride and say it's delicious and continue forcing several more bites before giving up and requesting a doggie bag for the leftovers, which you promptly throw away upon leaving the restaurant
B: Swallow your pride and admit that the special is awful and ask if can return the special and get your regular dish.
C: ?
