Have you ever gone to your break room to get coffee only to find that there's a tablespoon of it left in the pot while it's on the warmer? This irks me! The worst part of it is it happens a lot. It doesn't take a genius to know you don't leave the pot like that.
Last Friday after lunch my co-worker smelled something burning. So when she went to the break room she saw the source of the smell, and yes, it was the black-bottomed pot. It was too hot we didn't dare put it in the sink. The person responsible came by and realized what she'd done. I guess she felt bad coz she tried to clean it. This morning I went to get my coffee and there she was, the perpetrator. Sure enough there was half a cup of coffee left in the pot. She saw me pour it down the sink and make a new pot. She asked, "Wasn't that enough?" And I said, "I don't drink from bottom of the pot and that wouldn't even make a full one." She said, "Oh you know what it is, I couldn't tell how much was left coz of how wide the metal part is." O... M... G... I can't believe I heard that. Am I really working with this person? I mean, really? Was she trying to give me an excuse for not doing what she's supposed to do?
But like I said, it's a pet peeve. I'll get over it. I already made a fresh pot and it smells so good.
