Dude, I'm part Scottish. It's always a big deal. (I'm half-kidding, but only half. Plus we don't do soda at our house, so we've probably paid at least 2.99 for the fancy organic juice, or I've invested sweat equity in squeezing the damn oranges or lemons myself.
What really pisses me off is when one of the little tykes pops open one of my beers and then don't finish the damn thing . . . )
Buy I agree with you about the refill thing. I think I'm pretty conscientious about checking in with the kids about whether everyone got enough, is anyone still thirsty, whatever - we do want them to be comfortable, and you're right that as a kid it can be awkward to ask for things at someone else's house. Pouring a kid 2 ounces of juice or soda and then making him feel like he's imposing if that's not enough is lame.
