If you take the time to explain that you really mean it when you ordr it super hot and they still don't comply, you're not being a nightmare customer. Besides, once you get them trained right, you'll get what you want the first time.

You see, I am one of those "weirdos" who has a taste for uni. Lots and lots of uni. (basically raw sea urchin gonads... it's better than it sounds though.. trust me!!! ) I also have a taste for tako (octopus) and ika (squid) nigiri sushi.
You have won my heart Grumblebee! If we go for sushi I shall bring the hot red pepper oil.

OK, folks, let's put this in perspective. Cinnamon rolls are spicy. Some hams are spicy. Spicy can mean it is full of cinnamon or cloves. If you want hot, say HOT! When I go to a Thai restaurant, I specify "Thai Hot". When I go to a Mexican restaurant, I ask if they have a hotter salsa than what they put out with the chips (if it is a real Mexican restaurant, they often have one they bring out for gringas and one for their regulars). I live in the midwest, where bland can be king. But learn to say HOT when you mean HOT. There are a lot of spices out there.

Oh I do specify HOT. I usually say that I want it hot AND spicy and then go into a bit of detail about how I want it to "burn." I still get the tamed down versions though... *sigh*

-DEADLY SUSHI- If you are ever in Calgary we can definitely go for sushi! As long as there is plenty of wasabi and the sashimi is fresh, I am one happy girl!
