Drinks....do you stay or do you go?

I am wondering what people do when you have ordered a drink from CW (could be your second or third) but the slot you are playing goes dead and you want to leave it before she gets back with your drink.

Do you stay and wait for her or do you leave without a second thought.

I mainly stay but have left and have felt bad for her but then again I have tipped her well for my first drink.

Also, what happens to the drinks?

I usually move to another machine close by and watch for her. I NEVER leave the area without my drink!

I wait for the drink even if I have to stand around idling for a while, or I'll move to another machine in the area and keep an eye out for her.

I try to stick around for her...usually dropping the bet significantly in the process or not hitting that dang button as quickly as I normally would.

I wait. I might move to another machine nearby, but I won't just wander off. Except for maybe once or twice when it's simply taken forever for her to return.

I get up

And go find her so she's not wasting time looking for me. I have also gotten drinks other people ordered that the cw couldn't find. Why not - if it is something I like and it's there. I tip for it of course. I've often wondered what happens with that because the cws always look so relieved when I offer to take it. Do you think that come out of their pocket? Doesn't make any sense bc they ate not charging in the first place.

Since I only order water or Coke, I will leave if I am finished playing and ready to move on. I have however stayed longer just to wait for drinks before, and I usually regret it.

I wait. There is just no way I would do that to anyone. Even CW's have feelings.

I don't think there is a casino vet anywhere that hasn't ordered a drink and then gone on a terrible run at a table, or I suppose a machine, at one time or another. Those are those REALLY EXPENSIVE free drinks everyone talks about, lol.

Thats exactly what I do. Even moving to another machine close by I have left because she took too long...probably 20 min.

I hope it doesn't come out of their pocket!

I'm not sure if I would take another persons drink though.

Yea I never leave without my drink. The furthest I will go is another slot on that bank or on the next bank.

I always wait. I would hate to have her waste time hunting for me. They are VERY busy!
