Hands On or Hands Off ?

KaimukiMan | Jun 10, 2007 09:52 AM

In a recent post someone mentioned putting their hand over the top of a cup or glass to keep a server from refilling their beverage. I had always heard this was a no-no, as you are setting yourself up for a possible spill, or in the case of a hot beverage, a nasty scald. I would like to hear from both the server's and customer's point of view how best to refuse a refil, especially if the customer is involved in a conversation and does not want to interrupt to tell the server "no thanks"
