Again, just some practice. This is a dialog between a store clerk and a customer.

てにん:いらっしゃいませ? (Clerk: My I help you?)
きゃく: ええ, おはいよ! みずをください. (customer: Yes you may, good morning. Could I get some water please?)
てにん:おくらものですか? (Clerk:Is this a gift?) I know, who buys water as a gift? I just needed to use the word.
きゃく:いいえ.
てにん:かしこまりました, あの 1,500円です. (Clerk: Certainly, errr, that will be 1,500yen)
きゃく:やすいです! どうも. (customer: That's so cheap! Thanks.)

Notes:

1. A store clerk is not a てにん (tenin), he's a てんいん (ten'in).

2. いらっしゃいませ is not a question. It's a statement.

3. The English word is "customer" not "costumer."

4. "Gift" is おくもの.

5. That's really expensive water. Fifteen bucks! ;)

Sorry, I was in sort of a rush. Thank you for the reply. About the water, the price was a joke. ;)

You never know. I wouldn't be surprised to see stores selling "designer water" at inflated prices. ;)

I remember the old Steve Martin joke: "When I want to blow a buck on a bottle of water, I drink Perrier!" And that was over twenty years ago...
