I went to the South Office today and ordered my favorite warm coffee and a slice of Pumpkin Bread. Breakfast of Champions, you know. Of course to shield myself from the cool winds that are whipping down the plains I went through the drive-thru. I get my stuff and off to work I go with a happy warm cup in my hand. I get to work and start drinking said happy warm cup and it's a little odd. Hmm... I think too much whip cream? I march my not quite awake bo-hind into the supply room and search for a spoon. I started stirring odd-happy warm cup and discover the reason behind the odd taste.

There is NO. COFFEE.

For some odd reason when I pay an absurd amount of money for coffee I want there to actually be SOME coffee in it. So I had to take my little not quite awake bo-hind back out into the cool winds that go whipping down the plains, and go back to South Office. This time I walked in and asked them politely to put some coffee in my coffee. They were embarrassed. I mean, their whole purpose for being to provide people with absurd costing coffee! Needless to say I'm back at work now and have almost finished my happy warm cup of (coffee tasting) goodness. I'll be my normal self in no time!

Now I want some coffee. :)

Not laughing at you...laughing at your post. One wouldn't think that you had to check your coffee cup to make sure there's coffe in it. It's just a funny situation and glad it wasn't me. I get mad at things like this.

thats happened to me MORE than once at that place.....and one time? the girl had the audacity to argue with me, and tell me it was made just like they always do, couldn't possibly be a problem because they do things the same everytime...i was angry. if i say there is no coffee in my coffee, and i'm staring at WHITE liquid, you better get your little self on back there and make me another one before i take your head off.

maybe they weren't awake either...gosh Leslee...cut them some slack! haha

didja get some free stuff? a coupon? (do you say kew-pon or koo-pun? )

eija said...

Hahahahahaa :D

Actually that happened to me, too - on the office coffee machine. I bought a caffe latte but ended up leaving a reclamation saying that the machine forgot the caffe from my latte...

Maybe it's an universal wrinkle in coffee supplies?

lol! I would never have thought you'd have to check your coffee to make sure there's coffee in it!

Leslee said...

Teri, go get you some coffee. Just make sure they put coffee in it!

Cindy, I'm glad you're not laughing at me! That'd be mean.

Susie, I think you should have opened a can all over that chick!

AJ, they didn't give me nothing besides a fresh cup of joe. What's up with that??! I need a free cup next time! I say it like q-pon.

Eija, so were you standing there telling the machine to put coffee in your coffee?

Lynn, crazy, no?

Leslee... how come I didn't come to think of that? *grin*

My mom bought me a $50 gc to you-know-where... I was planning on taking a walk with the kids this morning and buying myself a little treat there -- now I will double-check my cup! LOL
