holidays from hell

Have you/your family experienced a mishap large or small in conjunction with a major holiday, particularly one where families gather for festive dinners and parties? Like a turkey that never thawed, a snowstorm that kept you in an airport for days, fire or flood, CABLE SERVICE NOT WORKING (the horror)?

I'm remembering the Thanksgiving where 3/5 of our party got a serious stomach bug, or maybe it was food poisoning...right after dinner and all night long. Our guest escaped unscathed to her own house, and my father, who didn't get sick, was left to deal with the considerable mess.

Potluck pot roast not chicken pot pie

So tonight i ordered the chicken pot pie but got the pot roast instead. The server said they were out of pot pie and substitited the pot roast instead. Seeing as it was closing time and we were the last customers in the place and i have no moral objections to pot roast i accepted it without further ado.

Have you ever ordered one thing and gotten something completely different? What did you do?
What would you have done if you were in my place?
