The snark occurred when upon being seated, our attractive waitress of many arm tattoos, handed us the menu and asked "What kind of water can I get you started with?"
She then clarified "plain, sparkling or still"? Luckily I hadn't had any yet or it would have come out of my nose. Have I not be to a "nice" restaurant in a long time and is this now typical? Because to me it was just too pretentious for words.
We also had the opportunity to eavesdrop on another table's conversation where a guy was telling a story about someone explaining to him that they had a speech impediment which causes him to sound sarcastic.
