Miser Redux

So today I joined the team for lunch. We went to this restaurant and ordered our food. It's not an expensive restaurant, nor was it the usual kopitiam. A bowl of noodles cost rm5 here and drinks go around rm3.

Anyway, I sat beside Mr Miser in this huge round table for 14. I probably have not mentioned it before but Mr Miser has dandruff problem. His hair is fulled of white dandruff. It was even in his shoulder. When he move, I can imagined dandruff flying everywhere. While it didn't worry me as much, it gets disturbing when the food arrived. Ugh..

Anyway after lunch, I asked for the bill. I decided to pay first since apparently no one is willing to take the first move. This is the time I miss the AA style of the Americans where we would be billed individually.

After paying the bills, the rest of the team started to pay me back. Mr Miser asked "do they charged for water? I don't think they charge for water, do they?"

"I don't know.. maybe they do," I said.

"I wonder how much is this water. Maybe it is free since it is not shown in the menu."

"Why don't you ask the waiter?"

Miser walked to the counter and came back looking dejected. "It's freaking 50 sen!" he said, and reluctantly parted with his beloved 50 sen.

I am like... what's wrong with this guy? It's just 50 sen! Maaaan!

Thing is, I heard that he has a very pretty girlfriend. Can someone please tell me why?
