At our usual Outback I tell them how I want my steak cooked (4 seconds per side) and the server always asks "So, you want it rare?". Usually after explaining it again they come back out and ask if I am Frank, cause there is a note next to the grill.
Other places I have told them I don't want it rare, I want it so a good vet could save it.
I had a bit of a disagreement in Toronto once. I ordered it blue rare (and described what I was looking for in detail), they brought me medium rare. I told them it was overcooked, he said "its bleeding, its rare". I told him if it was warm enough to bleed it was overcooked. We did not part friends, but that might be cause I am an arrogant American that wanted an expensive steak my way.
