May I have some water, please?

当我们在中式餐厅里吃饭的时候,可能你还未坐暖,茶水已经奉上。但是在西方的餐厅可不一样。因为老外大都习惯喝餐前酒或果汁,却没有喝餐前水的习惯。如果你有习惯喝水的话,你就可以要求说:"May I have some water, please?" ‘我可以要一点水吗?’

对话
A:What can I help you with, Miss?
B:May I have some water, please?
A:Certainly. But we only have distilled water and there will be a charge. There will be complimentary coffee or tea after your meal.
B:That's fine. I need some water to take my tablets.
A:Alright. Wait a moment, please.

甲:小姐,有什么可以为你效劳?
乙:请给我一杯水好不好?
甲:当然可以。但我们只有蒸馏水而且是要收费的。餐后会奉送咖啡或茶。
乙:真好。我需要一些水才可以吃药丸。
甲:好的,请你稍等一下。

餐厅侍者的一句What can I help you with, Miss?颇为值得留意。首先是help...with something / somebody这说法,你用过没有?没有,就应该学习。那是 ‘帮助……处理某事物 / 某人’的意思,例如:(1) She helped her mother with the housework.(她帮助母亲做家事。) (2) I helped him with the children.(我帮助他照顾孩子。)What can I help you with, Miss?即 ‘小姐,有什么要我效劳的?’那with一字切勿略去。

另一个字似乎很简单,但不少人未必完全懂得:Miss。这个字常和姓名连用,称呼未婚的女人,无论年纪大小,例如:Miss Mary Kennedy, now nearing sixty, lives all by herself.(玛丽.肯尼迪将近六十岁了,自己一人居住。)

Miss还可独立使用,称呼不知其姓名的年轻女性,不必用大写,但用大写也可以,例如:(1) What are you looking for, miss?(小姐,你在找什么?)(2) Excuse me, Miss, you dropped your handkerchief.(小姐,你掉了手帕。)此外,学生称呼女教师,也可叫miss或Miss,例如:(1) Miss, Bill keeps calling me "monster" !(老师,比尔不断叫我做‘怪物’!)(2) May I be excused, Miss?(老师,我可以上厕所吗?)

除了用于称呼,miss还可用来说 ‘年轻的女人’,有时带戏谑或不满含义,例如:What a cheeky little miss she is!(这个小姑娘脸皮真厚!)
