It should be considered a crime to serve bad coffee at the office. Seriously. Whoever brewed the burnt, weak pot of “nastay” sludge should be fined $1 billion. And we’re going to install stocks to put the loser who used up all of the coffee creamer in. OK, maybe that’s just my pre-coffee brain talking, but who’s with me?
I’m not a morning person, and my lovely Alpine family understands. But here’s a real look at a non-morning person’s struggle bus adventure.
Struggle Bus: The Autobiography of the Not a Morning Person
Time to get up and get to work. Ha, jokes. Hit snooze for 30 minutes.
OK, now you really have to get up. The faster you get showered, dressed, and crawl through traffic, the faster you can get this day over.
Awwww, yeeaaaaahh. WARM 98.5 is totally playing my T.Swift jam. Maybe today won’t be so bad.
Coworkers: Good morning! What are your plans this weekend? Are you excited it’s Friday? I love your shoes! Ahh, Friday! Happy, happy, happy!
Me: … meh.
Level 1: Get out of bed & Get to the office. Check.
Level 2: Navigate the morning people in the office. Check.
Someone used the last Pumpkin Spice K-Cup. Chocolate Glazed Donut is on backorder. We’re out of CoffeeMate liquid creamer. The Krea machine is broken.
Happy Coworker: We have a carafe over there! And there is decaf! The smell and taste should wake you up, right?
Level 3: Coffee…
Pumpkin spice. All the creamer. Stir sticks stocked. There are sleeves for the coffee cups. It’s going to be a great day.
