Free Refills on Same Visit Only at McDonald’s

The universal theory of free soda refills is one of those things that has been discussed in great depth at the theoretical level, but apparently theory has become reality at a Seattle-area McDonald’s I visited yesterday that is taking steps to lock down on serial refill thieves. Yup, it says right on the fountain that free refills are only offered on a single visit.

Really? This must be a real problem to warrant an official sign to be made and posted. Being that soda is so cheap to buy, I anticipate these measures will only be taken by fast food restaurants in rough neighborhoods with high rates of homelessness.

With free refills at fast food restaurants being a fundamental part of the American Dream, any more substantial changes have the potential to rock this fine nation to its core. I contacted McDonald’s for comment, but have not yet heard back.
