Refilling my drink when I did not ask or was not asked really bothers me, to the point that when it happens, I lose a good 15 mins thinking about it. I've tried to figure out why, and I think it's because it assumes that me, as the drinker, doesn't know or understand how much I want to drink. This makes me inferior to you, as the person pouring the drink. It's not the inferior part that gets me, but the assuming part. Before placing food on someone's plate, you, as the host, should ask them if they would like some of what you're serving. I think the same should apply to my drinks. I'm sure this has been determined somewhere but google and wikipedia have both failed me.
