Spicyness question, whose fault is it

Boychucker | Mar 27, 2010 11:15 PM

I rarely have a problem with spicyness at restauarants. I always order my food with 0 stars, or "no spice" because I don't like spicy foods. I had lunch this week wth a friend and I ordered my food with 0 stars and she ordered hers with 2 stars. Our dishes looked the same, and we could both see the red pepper in both dishes. I ate some of mine, it was a little too spicy but I could eat it and I didn't wan't to ask to have mine redone. My question is, what do you do if your dish is too spciy? Is it your you faultt that you don't know what the restaurant's 2 star means? Or can you say "I know what 2 stars tastes like and this isn't two stars?" This is mainly just a curiosity question. Like I said, I always order no stars and say no spice and it's always good. Thanks. :)
