Folks are we still on the topic of 'Declining Service' or have we move on to discussing the pros and cons of drinking coffee :D

I'll try that next time, it may work better :P



I don't know you're very fluent in Chinese! I'd be floored if you speak as good as you type in the next gathering.

You think you all got it bad. I had a cup of tea the other day and it cost me S$4.50! And the kicker is that they just gave me a cup of hot water and a tea bag. So I just about did everything myself! :shock:

Plus they'd forgotten our muffin orders completely.

Yeah, that really pisses me off as well. I go to the airport to pick up my daughter and sit down and have a cup of Earl Grey and a Blueberry muffin. The tea is a cup of hot water and a teabag, and yeah, $4.50!

Somehow, instead of quoting Max I just typed in his post about the airport. Corrected now. :oops:
