This happened to one of my friends at a charity ball. Being the bigger man, he acknowledged the request, went to look for a "real" waiter to get the 2 extra glasses of wine requested, handed it over to the guy, bid him good evening and then went about his routine. Saved a whole lot of embarassment for both parties.
