Waitstaff topping off glasses from bottle on the table... [moved from Wine board]

I have a question. I went to dinner w/2 friends last night. I was ordering by the glass, they split a bottle. One friend is a guzzler....so every time the waitress swung by, the guzzler's glass was almost empty and the waitress stopped and refilled it. The other friend was sipping and the end result is she got just over 1 glass out of the bottle. She was a bit peeved and said a firm NO when asked if anyone would like to order another bottle. Is simply refilling the glass of whoever is nearly empty the standard practice? At some point should she have realized she was filling one all the time, and the other never?
