100 People Who Were Pleasantly Surprised When Their Food Request Was Taken Literally (New Pics)
Rarely does it happen that things go the way that we hoped they would. Dreams stay in the dream realm, fulfilled only through the help of our psyche, whilst the real world continues to work against us. But there are those moments that make life worth living, especially when it comes to food.
The subreddit named “Delicious Compliance” allows people who’ve had their dreams come true to a T to share their moments of bliss. What you ask for, you shall receive! You get extra pickles, and you get extra pickles, everyone gets extra pickles! If you don’t want them, we won’t be shoving them down your throat (unless you’re into that kind of thing).
So, dear delicious readers, enjoy this wholesomely satisfying list, and don’t forget to upvote your favorites! Also, leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments below, mayhaps sharing your own stories of wondrous generosity. If by the end of it you’re still feeling peckish, I’ve got another Bored Panda article right here. Enough talk, let’s munch into it!

#1 A “Medium" Ice Cream Cone

A silencing of a frustrated desire, representing the world as one would like it to be rather than as it actually is. That is one way to define wish fulfillment. Some others would probably say that getting their life’s worth of pepperoni on a pizza comes close as well.
Over 178k people have witnessed or have shared their dreams coming true, in the most wholesome and delicious form, with the help of the “Delicious Compliance” subreddit. Asking for what you want—what you really really want—doesn’t always work out, but that’s never the case in this little corner of the world.
Created all the way back in December 2016, it has housed an unprecedented number of fulfilling, wholesome, and utterly hilarious dishes, some of which you, dear reader, are scrolling through today. But let’s dive a little deeper into this deep-dish pizza and question what it actually means to have your dreams come true.
#2 This Was Supposed To Be A Single Taco. I Didn't Ask For Anything Extra. Needless To Say I'm Very Happy With The Portion Sizes Today

#3 Extra Limes, Please

Dream come true (idiom): something you have wanted very much for a long time that has now happened. Shocking definition, I know! Would have never been able to figure out what that meant, that’s for sure. However, there is one thing that is a bit confusing—why does it happen so rarely?
According to S. Freud and his theories on dreams, he believed that wish fulfillment has to have an element of prohibition. A kind of forbidden fruit situation, if we may—you want something so bad, but there’s something in the way of you getting it. Whether it be the law, moral constructs, or a pesky wall, the turmoil of getting to your desires makes the dream all the more sweet.

Hence why perseverance should be rewarded more than a singular achievement. Although if all you do is try to get to your dreams, but end up not reaching any outcomes, are you actually getting anywhere, or are you just running on the treadmill of life? Effectiveness and success are about progress, not effort. They’re about the outcome, not the output.
But back to wishing and the beginning stages of action-taking. A wish never arises in isolation; it always encounters other wishes, opposing it in an open structure so that desire is always in the process of organizing meaning. You can thank Jacques Lacan for that one… He considered this always-incomplete destiny of desire to be the basis of the human condition.

#8 That's A Lott'a Cheese

#9 I Asked For "A Bit Of Extra Sauce On The Side" And Was Hit With 31 Packets Of Assorted Sauces
Image credits: 16bitTango
Let’s break that down in human language. The process of organizing meaning: our purpose here is never set in stone, and it’s based on our cravings for the present and the future. The more we dream, the more enriched our potential purpose becomes, especially considering the fact that wishes are never isolated, but rather intertwined.
You wish to win the lottery so that you can afford your dream house, so that you can partake in your favorite activities, so that you can treat your beloved people. Or, in this case, you dream of endless olives on your pizza to fill your taste buds with joy, to bring you closer to heaven on earth, and to fuel your love for olives even further.

Thing is, once that dream is complete, another takes place. And the dance goes on and on until the day we expire. As soon as we stop craving, we start decaying. So never stop reaching for your dreams, dear Pandas, especially if they’re the tasty type!
I’ve always said this and I will repeat it—if you want something, ask for it. Don’t let it stay in the back of your mind as though it is a forbidden secret. Let the Starbucks employee know you want five espresso shots and 20 pumps of gingerbread cookie syrup. Hold the milk; add the cream. No judgment.

"Never be ashamed! There's some who will hold it against you, but they are not worth bothering with," J. K. Rowling said. If your dreams are big, people will mock you for them. That is a reality of life, sadly. However, that shouldn't distract you from having the most delicious, glorious, and iconic lunch to have ever existed. The haters can suck on a pinecone. No disrespect to pinecones.
