Scene From A French Restaurant

From our dinner out Saturday night…

Me: Is this bottled water?
French Restaurant Waiter: No.

Me: In the wake of hurricane Isabel and the power outage at the water treatment facility, the County has ordered all tap water to be boiled. Is this tap water?
French Restaurant Waiter:Oui it’s tap water.

Me: Has it been boiled?
French Restaurant Waiter: No, it’s filtered.

Me: That is not sufficient according to health officials. What about the ice?
French Restaurant Waiter: The water is filtered.

Me: Do you have any non tap water?
French Restaurant Waiter: Oui. We have Perrier and other bottled water.

Me: Did you know most other restaurants have stopped serving drinks due to the water restrictions?
French Restaurant Waiter: No. The Perrier is $5 a bottle…

More proof of a great line by Rip Torn from the Larry Sanders Show, “As long as I can remember the French have been fucking us!”
