Should I blame my broker?

    Hi folks,

    Just wanted to know if the following is acceptable or not.

    Placed a small market order for a liquid security and, since strangely it didn't fill after a few minutes, just in case I canceled the order (status changed from Open to Pending).

    One hour after canceling the order, it was filled, needless to say, at the worst possible price.

    I should mention that this happened last Thursday.

    Should I move my business somewhere else or is this acceptable?

    Thanks in advance.
