After three years, my Snoopy coffee mug has returned to the office.
I work down on the south end of the building now, and the south end has a working coffee nook! The north end of the building… did not.
Not only was there no coffee, nor a hot water tap, these last three years, the water that came out of the sink was white and fizzy. I’m not sure if it was even safe to drink.
I had a coffee mug at work, but it was not the Snoopy mug. That stayed at home. I sometimes had a box of tea bags at the office — and I had a large quantity of Irish Breakfast, which often makes me vibrate through chairs — but I’d have to walk halfway across the building to the lunch room and microwave the tea.
No more! I can go to the coffee nook! I can use the hot water tap! I can have tea!
