The ghost at my work finally shows what she can do, there is a scientific reason for this, can anyone guess?

this also works if you place a flat hard object over the water, like a piece of glass, the surface tension seeks a balance. The reverse causes a vacuum.

what is happening is the water is being drawn up into the cup, the inside of the cup has a different pressure than the water. To do this trick put water on a flat surface and place a cup squarely over the water the cup will act like a bubble on the water as the water moves up into the cup changing the pressure it will cause the cup to slide, in a random direction.

water is not moving

Very good guess, it does involve water. The counter top is very level so water just sits up on it without running off. Next clue: balance of pressure
