Carry out's - wrong items?

I keep getting Chicken when I order Beef from my local Chinese Carry Out;
Mind you I have only SHMBO's word she actually orders me Beef with Mushroom  rather than Chicken with ....
This is the 2nd time I have ordered Beef and gotten Chicken. Not that I mind, I will eat it but it's NOT WHAT I ORDERED!  Sad

Can't remember the title but there was a film where a character rants "they always **** you in the drive through" as he looks at the boxes contents when they zoom away.

Re: Carry out's - wrong items?

how can you tell its beef ?
a fair number of "Chinese takeaways" use "locally sources meat" and theres a lot less strays around than there were before they opened up  Wink
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
