However, at a restaurant the glass of water is expected to be free because there is NO way the entire meal and drinks you are paying for dsn't already pay off that water many times over. I would not go back to a restaurant that charges me for a glass of water.
    Totally agree Arawak.

    I went thru the McDonalds drive thru, in Indiana yesterday. I asked for a glass of water with my sandwich. She asked what size. I said large. It was 75 cents! I think thats the new thing out there. Charge for water.
    The last 5 years in Aruba, I always ask for tap water. They would always try to give me a bottle water. This was at the fast food places. Now they tell me that I cant have tap water. Only bottled water.

    Kent I think the 75 cent charge at Mc Donalds is for the plastic cup which I can understand. Still overprice! I can see charging 15-20 cents for the plastic cup.
