Does “Could I trouble you for a glass of water?” make sense to you?
“Could I trouble you for a glass of water?”という言い方は意味を成しますか?

That’s what I could hear someone say in an American drama.

I’m not familiar with saying, “Could I trouble you~?”
“Could I trouble you~?”という言い方に馴染みがありません。

I’m not sure of whether the idiom is used often or not.

Note: My Japanese sentences are loose translations.
