Is it grammatically correct for the bar maid to say £3.40 for you while serving me a drink,...as this suggests she is about to give me £3.40?

Update:

in UK. please no Americans

    It doesn't suggest that, because the usual procedure when a bar maid serves you a drink is for you to give her money. Any rational adult knows that, so it isn't necessary for her to say 'Now you have to give me money'.
