Expensive drinking water…

6 12 2007

Had a team lunch yesterday at a Italian restaurant.

The waiter asked, “Still or Sparkling”? So the group said “Still”

Enjoyed lunch and all, upon checking the bill much later, we called back and asked…what was the charge for 4 x Panne = $36?

Only to find out, it was the expensive still drinking water we had.

Today, my colleague (and only now she’s sharing this when she was at the lunch….) said that in this sort of restaurants, the minute they ask the “Still or Sparkling water” question, we need to tell them: “Just water”

Is there really a difference in the water content and quality?!

 Lesson learnt!

That “Still or Sparkling?” just sounded so familiar, no wonder:
