No more: "Oy! Come back with that, scoundrel!"
The glassies at my local are
almost too conscientious for
their own good. The number of
times I've turned my back on an
almost-finished schooner, only
to turn back and find it
disappearing at the top of a
stack of dirty glasses, well...
The DregScale is a coaster-sized
digital scale, with a bright red
led display and absorbent
facing. Simply 'zero' it with an
empty glass, place your tasty
beverage on it as you would a
standard coaster, and it fills
your beverage of choice with
bright red light. The
overzealous glassy knows that
while the glass shines red,
you've still got a mouthful
When you've finished your drink
(and I mean FINISHED, with not a
drop left to swill the vile
nicotine taste from your mouth),
the display turns green, and
your friendly local pub employee
knows it's time to collect.

||I've had an entire shot of (rather expensive) whiskey in a tumbler stolen from my immediate vicinity without my knowledge in a pub, because it looked like the discarded dregs of a Southern Comfort and lemonade, which made me extremely angry as the house would not replace it and for which I never forgave that frightened Polish barmaid.
||This doesn't even have to be automated, coasters with LEDs would do the trick, though that's not very bakery.
||You're right, of course, [theleopard]. LEDs, or even a double-sided coaster, one side red, one side green, would do the trick.
||But, this being the HB, if I took out the automation, I'd have to add hamster-power or dancing mice or somesuch.
||As for the whiskey: I feel your pain.
