    Question a pity glass

    Scenario:

    A boy was selling lemonade. A girl told her brother, "I don't even want any. I just bought a pity glass."

    Question:

    a pity glass = she didn't mean to buy it but just did a favor?

    Thanks!

    She really didn't want any, but - out of pity for the boy - she bought one glass.
