Do I look stupid? Another bad night

Discussions about restaurants, cafes, coffee shops or bars in Cambodia. Feel free to write any reviews you have, whether its the best burger you've had in Phnom Penh or the worse pizza in sihanoukville, we want to read it! Discussions about Khmer dishes are also in here, or you can leave your own. If you own a restaurant, feel free to let the expat community know about it here so that we can come check it out. Found a favorite cafe or have a place we should avoid? Tell us about it. Asian recipes & questions are always welcome.

Bill comes $2 for 2 beers , draft beer 75 cents? Ohh we give you can beer , so where are my cans I say I only have a glass, did I win a motorcycle?
No you only win a beer ,ok take $1 off the bill
Fuck me food good, price ok but for 50cents they lost a customer for life dumb cunts.
I can't think how many times my bill has been wrong more times than right, yes sometimes in my favour but I let them know and pay the correct amount if good experience
What restaurant did you go to?

I dont think Tightwad is an insult. It basically means someone who keeps a close check on their expenditure and understands the value of money. Like the phrase Cheap Charlie, which I take to mean someone who would rather keep their money to themselves and not hand it out willy nilly to every third world bar girl and con artist.
