Refill failure

Was out for fancy lunch today and had red wine with my meal, and as is the norm the waiter periodically refilled my glass.

Milan doesn't like this. She doesn't like this for 2 reasons.

Reason A: as with the petrol tank that never reaches F, when the glass is refilled you never get to have the achievement of finishing one glass of wine, even though you'll have drank way more than that.

Reason B: you've no idea how much you've drank, and it can lead to purple lips, premature intoxication and being very tired.

I'm tired, but I'm off for round 2. Tune in later for some drunken ranting.


  1. Ha! When I'm in that mood (not liking the refills coming without me being sure I need/want them - and/or - the waitor not even bothering to make eye contact* prior to refilling (*that is always what gets me annoyed btw)) I put my hand over the glass.

    Works everytime.

  2. I was going to post one something similar.

    Was in London over the weekend, went for dinner on Friday night with 10 others, waiters kept opening bottles of wine, fucking bill was £1200 just under £800 of which was gargle.
