Cold Water

OK, here it its, I was sitting in one of my favorite restaurants last night and of course, there’s a group of obnoxious jackasses at the table next to me. They were having a good time and definitely already had a few drinks.  While they were having a meeting of the minds, one of these brilliant, productive members of society realized they hadn’t ordered yet so they flagged down their server.

The server came over and started taking their orders.  While he asked the most brilliant of the scholarly minds “What would you like to drink”, Mr. Intelligent responded, “Do you have cold water”?  Everyone just stopped and pretty much the entire restaurant stopped.  It was so quiet, you could hear the sound of crickets (figuratively speaking of course).  In my mind, they certainly aren’t going to offer warm water, what a dumb-ass.  It was one of those moments where you just want to say “What an idiot” or a few other expletives.  After about 30 seconds, life was back to normal and I asked for the check.  REALLY!!?
