Early Morning Shocker*

In what I can only assume was a gesture of kindness one of my co-workers someone dumped about a dozen or so packages of flavored coffee into the regular coffee drawer.

Sweet?

Um, not so much.  I walked into the break room in my usual a.m. haze, grabbed the regular occfee pot, poured a cup and took a sip of something that didn't taste like to rust removing black tar stuff I was used to consuming.  In fact, it smelled more like the dumpster of a Cinabon than coffee.

"I think there's something wrong with the coffee," I said to another employee who was making a cup of tea.

"Someone probably just made one of the specialty kinds," she replied.

Sure enough, when I looked in the trash there was an empty packet of Tiramisu flavored coffee.

If I want my Tiramisu drinkable, I'll chuck it in a blender with a fifth of Khalua like a normal person thank you very much.

And why the regular coffee pot?  Next time mess with the decaf drinkers.  They are much less likely to shank you with a letter opener for mesing with their brew.

* Get your minds out of the gutter.  As you can see, the shocker had nothing to do with the, um, hand gesture...

I agree! I only drink regular flavored, but will occasionally splurge on Irish Creme.

It SO much more fun to watch a decaf person bounce off walls and clutch their hearts as they threated to pound out of their chests.....bah! Leave the regular pot alone!

And don't get me wrong, I am a bag fan of flavored coffee creamers, but then it is my choice. (Especially the ones that taste like Gingerbread. Yum.)

On the flip side, I also drink quad lattes, which taste like milk and motor oil and I love them.
