Let's say your office has a coffee maker with 3 pots, 2 regular and one decaf. It's 11:00 and you pour yourself a cup of regular and you finish the pot. At this point what is the proper action? No, don't reach for that switch - turning the burner off and leaving makes you an asshole. If you want to be a responsible member of coffee-drinking society you make a new pot. Yes, even if you're late for a meeting. Maybe you should have thought of that before you decided to empty the pot, you leech.

You coffee drinkers sure are an uptight bunch.

I'd say just skip the coffee, then you don't need to worry about your idiot coworkers.

I'd try to answer your question, Chris, but I'm busy struggling to absorb the fact that your brother doesn't drink coffee.

your brother doesn't drink coffee

Yeah, he's strange that way.

My new place has the Keurigs with water feeds.

It's actually damned dangerous. Zero-effort coffee.

Place mug under spout. Place coffee pod in holder. Press a button. Fresh coffee.

Way too easy to find yourself on your 7th cup.

That sounds nice Angelos. The only good thing I can say about our work coffee is it's free.

My office has a 12-cup maker that brews the coffee into a big carafe.

There are 2 coffee drinkers in the office. We finish at least one pot a day.

God damn, windowless offices suck.
