that sux. do you ever get there where people leave a tiny amount in the pot then it left to burn off because its on a hot burner? Then around lunch the breakroom smells of nasty ass burnt coffee. effing coffee fart.

No becasue we have those craft style ones that just stay hot without the use of a burner but I know what you are talking about it is awful and hard to clean.

We have Flavo machines very similar but the line is always to long and I am too busy to wait for that stuff. My office is like 400 to 500 people. There are many coffee stations.

That's why I suggested a personal Keurig for your desk, if you are allowed to have that sort of thing of course.

Oh I gottcha I thought you meant for the whole office.

I don't know... Ever have a canker sore? Hurts like hell right but some reason you can't stop poking at it. That is what the coffee situation is like for me; it grinds my gears but a remote part of me finds pleasure in the disappointment of it not being there. I guess it helps me justify this place sucks at times.

It is odd I really can't explain it but at times people get pleasure from things that pain them.

Like getting pleasure from being a Skins fan.

Finally something we can agree on.

Why do we sit there on a Sunday, all excited, only to be miserable by the end of the Third or worse (as it seems with Dallas) on the last score of the game?

Just for rare moments like this:

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

This one goes out to Mr. I-Wear-Too-Much-Cologne-At-Work Guy. Only you can smell like you just rubbed yourself down in 30 pages of cheap cologne samples from random magazines. Only you feel the need to wear cologne in a parts department, whose main smell is a combination of box dust, car parts, and ciggarette smoke, at least when you're not around. I guess you gotta be prepared for when you occasionally see a woman in this sausage fest.
