Anyway, it's your steak. If you want to eat something that costs more and tastes worse, that's your prerogative.
Being totally serious, I won't turn down a filet. There's just several other cuts I'd order before that, and a few other entrees entirely. But if that's what's offered, I'll be happy.
I can't be expected to inspect every bite. That's why the food production industry is for. I'm busy at the table buttering my potato and drinking my Pibb Extra and chatting and figuring out what I'm going to have for dessert. My meat entree shouldn't be requiring my attention other than cutting and chewing.
