To want a freshly poured drink.

Was in a shopping centre today, needed to get DS3 school shoes. Went for lunch in the food court, and ordered meals which came with a drink.

The drinks had all been lined up, ready poured or dispensed, and when the girl serving me picked one up and put it on my tray I said "I don't want one that has been stood, I would like a fresh one please."

The girl said "But they have just been poured" and I replied "No, I want a fresh one please, I don't know how long it has been stood there."

So, with much huffing and puffing and rolling of eyes she did eventually pour me a fresh one.

So, AIBU to want a fresh drink, bearing in mind when they are sat there the ice melts and they go flat, and wanting a fresh drink without all the attitude?

If the food court was busy enough to warrant her pouring htem a head of time it probably was freshly poured. So Yabu and she probably spit in it too

i used to work at burgerking, and we weren't allowed to pre-pour drinks.
if it was that busy, then someone would be standing at the drink station pouring drinks as and when required.

Southern no it wasn't busy. We didn't have to wait to be served at all.

And she didn't spit either, I watched her.

ModreB ... no but she gave you the pre-spat-in glass wink

Not unreasonable at all

Surely taking a few extra seconds just to pour a fresh drink in view of the customer (who can at least see that their drink is on it's way), is better than serving flat soft drinks? Would most people not just return them for a fresh one anyway?

You are right OP - I would not want a drink which had been sat there for god knows how long.
