The Golden Rule About Black Coffee

Ok, this may sound like me venting (and it is), but I’m sure you’ve had this happen to you at work. You go to get a cup of coffee from the coffee maker in the little kitchenette area at work, and there’s about a teaspoon left in the pot, cooking and cooking, churning and churning, getting stronger by the second. So, you do the right thing, empty the pot, clean it and brew another batch.

Then, you go off and do your your job, forget that you made a brand new pot of coffee, and by the time you go to grab a cup, the pot is sitting there with about a teaspoon of coffee sitting in it, cooking, churning, and getting stronger by the second (to quote Yogi Berra, “Sounds like deja vous all over again).

What’s a busy coffee-drinking worker to do? I suppose you could buy a coffee to go before you get to work, or bring a commuter mug filled with coffee you brewed at home. But when that’s gone, then what?

We don’t want to accuse any one of being the one (or the ones) who always take coffee but never make coffee. So, maybe just a gentle reminder of the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. So, when you take the last cup, you make the next pot. How simple, why didn’t I think of that before? Wait a minute, I did.
