Making Coffee on Monday Morning: Fail

It’s a great cosmic irony that folks who haven’t yet had any coffee are expected make it.

At my day job, whoever’s first into the office (or into the kitchen at least) is the one who makes the coffee. Usually that’s not me, but this morning it was. Spilled water and coffee (grounds and brewed) and scalded myself. Sigh. At least I didn’t electrocute myself or blow a fuse.

Ow.

    I feel for you. I have often wondered about this paradox myself.

    You should make it really really bad. Like sludge. Then maybe you won’t have to make it anymore.

    Our secretary is out today and the coffee machine wasn’t working when we got in. It was a near mutiny, but I sent someone to buy a new one before it turned into a full-scale riot.

    My first job at the phone company was copy room guy/errand stuff.
    Including making coffee, though most of the office knew how to make coffee. We had one exception though…
    Bob just couldn’t remember that you needed to put a filter in the basket. There was an arc of stained carpet in front of the coffee maker where the basket had exploded out of the machine on more than one occassion.
    Turns out coffee grounds swell up and clog that little hole in the bottom of the filter.
