How often do you regret your order at a restaurant?

Theres always another dish around the corner.

When growing up, we often made fun of my father for the longing looks he gave food that was headed to other tables. As a kid, I was embarrassed when my dad would snag a waiter's attention to find out what had just wafted by his nose. Although, to be fair, I was embarrassed more by the potential for embarrassment rather than any actual comments in what was usually a benign restaurant interaction.

As an adult, I'll admit I've come to repeat the sins of my father. I have a natural curiosity about what others are eating, and if I'm in a new place, sometimes moving my eyes around the dining room feels like a method that is as valid as perusing the actual menu. And once in a while, I'll see what looks like a perfectly composed dish and feel remorse that I've already seen our waiter key in a different item for me. How often do you regret your order at a restaurant?
