Coffee Machine Difficulties

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha

Subject: The Difficulties of Instant Coffee


Still hate the new job Sara?” Tabitha asks, as Sara returns from work.


Well, hate is a strong word. I don't like what I'm doing, and the people so far don't seem that competent. They even complain about the coffee machine being difficult!”


You have one of those k-cup things right? Don't you just put the thing in and hit a button?”


Oh, one of those things? I hate those machines. They make such crappy coffee, and watery stuff too.”


That's the one. Actually, we recently upgraded. We had the simple in, press brew, grab cup, one. Then we got a new one for whatever reason. This one allows you select the size of the brew. Four, six, eight, or 10 ounces. Allows for stronger coffee if you want it, no one gets it thought.”


Is it really that tough? Truthfully, is just brewing coffee that tough? Like in a regular coffee pot?”


No one wants to take the time to set that up, and we'd go through it too fast. I guess people just don't care about quality. They just want their jolt of caffeine.”


Just the concept of weak or strong is too complicated for them huh?”


Seems that way. I hear nothing but complaints about it, given that I'm still sitting in the kitchen.”


I find a good cup of coffee is a big stimulus for writing. I'd probably vomit on the page drinking that instant crap.”


Guess you haven't had a good cup of joe in a while then.”


Hey! I've been writing..sort of. Thinking about writing..that counts right?”


What's that they say? The road to clearance rack books is paved with good thoughts?”


Are you really a writer if you only think about it? Doesn't that make you a 'thinker'?”


A philosopher!”


I'll pick it up..It's been a rough couple of weeks for me. I did think up a possible book idea though.”


Haven't you had a dozen book ideas over the years? Maybe you need to really sit down and write this one.”


Maybe. At least I know how to make coffee.”


I was never arguing that you didn't have a leg up over most of the 'computer geeks' I work with.”


Want to head down to Starbucks and needle Scott and get some coffee?”


Sure, lets do it.”

Oh yeah. People at my work complain about the fancy coffee machine, too (I sit right near the kitchen). I think they do this less out of true hatred of the machine, more out of the desire to talk about something after being cooped up in their offices all day.
