I eat at Subway often, actually. I've grown so accustomed to buying bottled water that I hardly think about the scenario of just walking in and asking for tap.

My earliest memory of being charged money for water was at one of the old "Clock" restaurants -- a defunct chain -- in Detroit. I had been out on the bike and was thirsty, so I walked in and asked for a water and they wanted a nickel for it. Or maybe it was a dime, but I think it was just five cents.

Bikes: Two-wheeled human-powered vehicles, but that's not important right now

It's not just walking in and asking for water. We were charged 40 cents per cup for water after my family & I bought four sandwiches. I'm sure it's just something this particular location is doing, because I've never had it happen anywhere else, but we were surprised they were charging so much for just ice water.
