I generally don't ask for it 50-50 in a go cup because its gone to quick so I get 3-4 ounces of water and the funny look is free. One time, I asked for this and the person pretending to be a Barista filled it right up with water. I reminded her what I asked for and then she promptly poured half of the cup in the sink and handed it back to me. I just turned around and walked away... In shock!
I usually get a funny look like you described as well. And 3/4 of the time I still receive a drink that has the full amount of water in it. Sigh.
Anyway, 80C is around what I've been using at home too.
