Tolerance levels

Hey bad_service , I'm wanting to whine but also see what's up with the rest of you.

What's your tolerance level for bad service? In general, what will you overlook, what will make you speak up, what will make you stand your ground even if it holds other people up?

I ask because I was just greatly annoyed by my McDonald's drive-through service. I ordered a "sausage mcmuffin", which was under the dollar menu thing and then quoted a price near $3. I was bothered enough to ask at the window if my thing was in the dollar menu, the lady asked if I wanted egg or not. I assume a "sausage egg mcmuffin" is not $1, which is what I had been charged for. I said sure, I'll have the egg. So I paid what amounted to an extra $1.39 for an egg patty, and discovered when I unwrapped it at the the first red light I caught that I had no egg :(

I was annoyed to the point of wanting to tell someone, but am not strapped for cash/awake enough/honestly, care enough to have a) turned around to get my egg or a refund or b) call the store to complain. I just want to whine about it because someone was wrong *bum bum bum*.

Am I too soft in letting it go? If I turned around would I have been obnoxious for pointing out the mistake? If I called to complain, would that make me extra obnoxious? Let's hear about your personal thresholds for bad_service .
