for a long while i have noticed an annoying trend in many sit-down dining establishments. an increasing number of restaurants have a no-water policy: they do not serve free cold water or even tap water to diners. instead, they make us buy their bottled water. i find this highly unacceptable.
serving water is the most basic service that a restaurant can provide. most of the time we are already paying a 10% service charge. even fast-food restaurants with no service charge do not have such a policy!
