On my last occassion, it being a hot day and me being a vaguely health-conscious sort of fellow, I had with me a bottle of mineral water - something that would appear to be deeply offensive to the staff of Yauatcha. I hadn't even sat down at the table, before....
"You can't drink that water here."The manager comes over.
"I wasn't going to."
"Can I take it please."
"I'll look after it for you, while you dine."
"Can I see the manager?"
"I'm sorry, we don't allow customers to drink their own water."Shit, I knew I had lost by mentioning expensive. It was meant to elude to their greed. But I could see in his eyes, he heard, 'I'm not drinking your water, it's too expensive." Bugger. I handed over the water. I ate. I got my water back. I scored a small victory. Now along with the water on the table rule, there's a no camera rule.
"I never said I'd wanted to."
"I can look after it for you."
No need, I'll stick it on the floor, if you want it out of sight."
"You might drink it."
"We don't allow bottles of water on the table"
"Not even one of your expensive, fancy glass ones."
You still PISSED ME OFF, YOU BASTARDS.
