3) In a state of panic, grab the coffee basket and try to quickly put it where it should be - The resulting accelerated motion thus spilling half of the coffee grounds all over everything.

4) End up with a pot of 3/4 strength coffee (the grounds that ended up IN the pot undoubtably helped make it stonger than the 1/2 strength it should have been)

5) Started over, after considerable harassment from my coworkers.

I've had that happen to me more times than I'd like to admit, ronjohn! Glad you finally got some good coffee!


I'm drinking sun tea.

Think anyone at work would notice if I replaced the water I've been drinking with Vodka?


Yeah, it's been one of those days....

I mostly drink "High Quality H2O". Since I am an athlete, it's either water or juice.
