    Is it time to vent yet? I am trying to stay calm. This is about as absurd as they come, the man is working there, it should have been the cafeterias responsibility to say something about refills, not the Federal Food Police, how much does this federal worker make being a mall cop? when will the stupidity end icon_rolleyes.gif

    It appears the VA 'no refills' law is a set up, to unsuspecting customers, only the government could justify a $525 fine for something soooo trivial, that is in line with the $7,000 toilet seats and $5,000 hammers, I am sure the cost of the drink dispenser alone is 10x the normal retail price icon_lol.gif

    OMG! As a Veteran I'm pissed. As a VA employee, doubly pissed.

    If refills are not free, then the soda machine is supposed to be behind the counter! This is excessive punishment.
