What is it with guys who cannot get water for themselves?

Yesterday my officemates – two ladies, a man and two boys - and I had lunch at a small canteen-style restaurant located next to our building. Considering that it’s still two days until payday, we had the usual rice topping budget meal. By the middle of the meal, I was feeling thirsty and since the waiters failed to serve water for us and the other two girls were having soda, I got up and got myself a glass of water.

The two boys were another matter. All throughout the meal, they were waiting to be served, complaining, “mabibilaukan ana ako, wala pa ring tubig.” Unable to stop the bitchy me, with eyebrows lifted, I said, “why don’t you just get water for yourselves? If you want something to be done, do it yourself.” For heaven’s sake, the table containing glasses and service water was merely three strides away from our very own table! How utterly infantile! Is it better to wait for water to be served until you die of thirst just to prove your point or to simply stand up, act like a man and get what you need?

What is with these young guys that they expect to be waited on and treated like princes?
