MAY I HAVE A WATER, PLEASE?

"What can I get you to drink?" is usually one of the first questions you hear when you sit down to eat at a restaurant. My answer is often water. I don't choose water because I am too cheap to buy a coke or other beverage; instead it is simply because I want water. However, sometimes I think the server seems to be less excited when they hear the phrase, "May I have a water, please?"

Don't worry, I'm still ordering food and you will get your tip. It's just that I'd rather have the healthier alternative than a soda.

well said! I know what you mean about the waitress/waiter weird face about the water...I always ask for water or lemonade, my husband always tells me "but we can pay for anything else honey" and I always answer "well coke goes right to my thights and butt, water doesn't!" hehe =)

HAHA, I added the words "do to" the first sentence of your post. LOL reminded me of a trip to Ireland where my co-workers took every chance they could to get me to try Guiness. Not sure why I did that or why I am telling you, but i thought it was funny.

I'm a water drinker as well. Even when I go to a buffet where a drink is included I often get water. Carbonated drinks often leave me feeling more thirsty.
