My four or five posts of possibilities were deleted.


I think they are very related to the topic of this thread.


Since the OP left before the water drinker: maybe,


a) her hubby was drinking with buddies and she was giving him a ride home.


b) she left a $50 tip.


c) maybe she got there very early and had food with friends


d)



I'm old, I can't remember all the possibilities I posted.

I ask this with no intent of starting problems, but ask this question. In some countries, you’ll be given a glass of water if asked at restaurants or bars. Been trying to determine if the same is true here in FL. We’re at WDW quite often and if you’re thirsty, you can ask for a glass of water at any quick serve location. You can always buy bottled water, but if you ask for a glass of water, you’ll get it...is it the Mouse being nice...or is there a requirement? There are quick serve bars there and I assume the same rule applies. Anyone know if there’s a ruling about being given water if asked for or is it the bartender’s call?

So my two cents worth. I think the point of the OP is twofold. First, as most of us know when waiting for a table at a CC, there usually are no seats at the bar due to the happy hour crowd and golfers coming off the afternoon wave. Someone sitting there just drinking water, with apparently no intent to eat, was taking a seat that could have been filled with a paying customer. Second, the bartenders live on tips and tips are based on the bill. We have no idea if the person in question left a tip or not but what do you think someone who only drank a glass of free water might have left?

I am pretty sure this is not worth worrying about.

Since the bar-keep seems unfazed by this situation, I suggest that she was a friend of his, keeping him company before she herself had to go off to work.

Hence no alcohol and no tips

Did she ask for lemons and packets of sweeteners?

She may have been an IRS Special Agent checking on the level of tips the bar staff were getting.

Please not the first time we have seen a water drinker sitting at the bar, take a bottle of flavored something out and use in the water. Leave after awhile and not eat. And yep no tip
