Should there be 1/2 a gallon of water in my mufflers?

AHA ok im really hoping this isnt something serious but today while I was getting my muffler delete, the guys brought me in and asked me if i had been in a flood recently? I said "umm no? why." They showed me my mufflers sitting there with water POURING OUT. I mean A LOT. WTF COULD THIS BE?

I have an appointment on the 7th of april to bring the car in, should I tell them what happened?

When I took my stock exhaust off, I noticed a splash of water come out of the muffler...and then figured to measuure it. The rest filled 3/4 gallon!!!

It is normal to have a little water in the muffler/exhaust. But for you to have 1/2 gallon? That is a lot of water.
