I work with infants

Question of the day: Why is it so difficult to make a pot of coffee?
  1. Remove filter basket
  2. Dump contents into (that very large and inviting) garbage can (next to the coffee pot)
  3. Put new filter (from the shelf right above the coffee pot) into filter basket
  4. Put (prepackaged/premeasured) coffee in filter
  5. Replace basket
  6. Fill pitcher with water to specified line
  7. Pour contents of pitcher into coffee machine

Okay, when you put it that way, it looks like an awful lot of work I guess. Regardless, the whole process takes 45 seconds - 30 seconds if you move step #6 after #2 and letting it fill while you do #3 and #4. Oooohh, multitasking!

Just recently, the powers that be installed a coffee maker with a water feed, thereby eliminating steps #6 and #7. Just hit the "GO" button!

However, I am sure that I can go to the breakroom right now and find a quarter-inch depth of black, viscuous fluid that smells like burning vomit. (Eeewwwwwww! Sorry, folks!)

I think it's a lack of manners on the part of the bastards that will leave a minute amount of coffee baking on the burner that prevents them from making a new pot. Maybe their time is too important? Maybe they're idiots?

Maybe I take this crap too seriously. I think I need another cup of coffee!

I wish I had something to say

Unfortunately, I do not. Pity.

I should probably work on that.

Maybe I just need more coffee.
