Thanks to the the “1985 Freedom to Drink Act,” customers at restaurants are legally entitled to free refills of non-alcoholic drinks. If this law had not been passed, profit driven restaurants would not provide this service of their own free will.

It’s a Milkdud joke. See his explanation below.

Absolutely true, and they’d never pay anyone a salary over $50,000 if not for the 1997 50 K Pay Act, or sell any plus-sized clothing without the 2Big2Shop Act of 2005; and don’t forget Toll Trolls 4 Polls Act of 2017 that finally made Show of Hands stop charging great you for each individual poll you answer!

How about the “She’s 2 good 4U” act of 2001 that entitled every unfit, unattractive welfare queen with a toxic personality to a skeezy guy who can not wait to get home from work every night and impregnate her?

You probably shouldn’t talk about the royal family like that...

I never heard of that act. Did you make it up for this poll?

Why do you think the average restaurant charges $3.00 for your free refills drink.

Of course they "would." Soft drinks are among the cheapest costs they face; offering free refills is lucrative for how it drives other sales.

A box of the soda thing costs like 5 dollars and makes like 200 sodas. It's still a profit earning product to offer free refills.

Most places in the South have free refills - not so much in the northeast.

I don’t know of any restaurants that don’t do this already and for years now. Competition and the necessity to provide good customer service is what brought this to pass.

No law like this exists in Oklahoma.

It’s a nation wide law, passed by the UN.

Oh well then. Should I take a dump on their flag now or after I get refills?

Sort of an alternate reality experience. I was at a restaurant earlier today and watched a woman get very mad because the restaurant does not offer free refills. She complained, at length, to her friends that she has a right to free refills where she’s from (wherever that is) because it’s required by law.
She believed strongly that the restaurant was taking advantage of customers due to poor local regulations.

I don’t know where she’s from, but I doubt her claim.

Another lie from the king/queen of dishonesty.
