Give me caffeine or give me...
By comand on Sep 30, 2004
No, wait... I just want some coffee. The good graces of Sun keep my brain awash in caffeine from the time I arrive, until I collapse in a lifeless heap around 3:30PM from too much caffeine (not really). However, there are those who would interrupt my flow of this essential element, through their antisocial coffee etiquette faux pas. Here are the rules as I understand them -- there are few, but critical to survival (not really):
- When thou com'st upon an unfilled urn of coffee, fill't up.
- Thou shalt not drain the urn and not refill because thou shalt "miss thine meeting".
- If thine meeting is a grave matter, and lateness brings punishment, thou shalt drink of a lesser beverage (water?), or appoint an acolyte to fill the urn.
- Thou shalt not silently drain the urn, and convince thine self that it is truly not empty. It is.
Can't we all just get along?
