Five minutes later, a heard a cry of surprise, followed by a groan. I jumped out of my seat, and before I even made it down the hallway, I realized what I'd done. "Oh my God! I forgot the coffee pot!" Hot coffee was everywhere. Dripping down the sides of the wire shelving, running down the sides of the microwave, and pooled all over the kitchen floor. Three of us tiptoed around the mess, wiping and mopping, trying not to ruin our clothing, and make the kitchen presentable for the client who was on his way.
"Boy, when you do it, you do it all the way, huh?" a coworker joked. Apparently so.
I'm grateful for the Tide Pen that magically erased the coffee stains on the shoulder of my boss's dress shirt.
Tuesday I overslept, got to work with one minute to spare, and waited patiently for someone else to make the coffee.
Here's hoping Wednesday is disaster free!
