REPLACE-ALOGUE: LIKE WATER FOR VODKA

You know what I hate? When people mess with the coffee machine. I am not talking about leaving descaler fluid in it or the dreg drawer full... rather one of my colleagues decided it was a good idea (and by good I mean terrible) to mix a bag of decaf and regular coffee.

Frankly decaf coffee has no place in this world. Convincing me of its merit is like convincing an alcoholic water is the same as vodka.

If you have to send an office gift or give a gift to someone you don't know (or are too lazy to shop for) gourmet coffee is the panacea of gifts. After the holidays it piles up. The lousy Sears Frigidaire is packed with the stuff. And for the most part good coffee. Save for two bags of Starbucks. One bag of decaf and a bag of regular. I hate Starbucks coffee, but I love free coffee so there is an uneasy peace.

Yesterday I open the cabinet to get something for my morning coffee routine and see two open bags sitting on the shelf. Being the investigative sort I look and see one bag of the Starbucks Verona regular and... what the? A bag of decaf. Both half full. I am not a mathematical genius but I can see what happened as our machine has one hopper that accomodates one bag of coffee.

Seething, I throw away the bag of decaf. I then pour the rest of the tolerable coffee into the machine's hopper to further dilute the decaf in there. So now it is about a two to one mix.

Making my coffee, I seethingly go back to my office. On the scale of things, even this stupidity is not worth causing drama. But really, who mixes decaf and regular coffee? That is just so boneheaded. But it does explain why I had been grumpier than usual the previous couple of days.

The Daily Gut digg this

No show tonight, but Greg, Andy and Bill get a long weekend.

P.S. I have thought about something more clever than a Replace-alogue, but the best I could come up with is Arqu-ology. Which is horrible.
