Hearing "or" and digesting it as "and" will take some getting used to

Trivia: Chai paani is slang for bribe

Kind of implies that some speakers end up saying things like "a bribe and some bread" instead of "tea, water and some bread" (चाय, पानी और फुछ रोटी). (could that happen in everyday speech though?)
