One of the firms that I worked for decided to send me on a training day at one of the other offices to learn a new accounting system. Pretty boring stuff but I managed to stay awake for most of the morning and then we had a break for coffee. Now all our offices were equipped with coffee dispenser machines (set to free ) you know the sort, they all work the same way. Choose your coffee style put cup on X marks the spot press button and away you go. Simples!!!
So I'm first in the queue in the kitchen area and spying a nice pile of clean china cups stacked at the side of the machine (nice touch I thought instead of having those silly plastic things that are way too hot to handle that my office had. ) popped one on the spot chose my coffee and pressed the button and stood back. Horrors. Suddenly a curved plastic door slides round in front of the mug which couldn't quite close properly cos of the handle and a plastic cup tried to plop down in the compartment only to be confronted with the said china mug. Mayhem now ensues as the machine starts dispensing the coffee over the plastic cup that is now lying sideways and as it can't tell when the cup is full continues to dispense hot coffee at an alarming rate filling up the compartment and spilling out onto the floor. Me? I'm pressing all the buttons under the sun like a lunatic in an effort to stop the darn thing. Sudden brain wave pull the plug!! Only problem is it is plugged into wall behind the machine. It took 2 burly men to man handle the machine away from the wall and switch it off. It took considerably longer to mop up the floor and fill in an incident report. On my cry of 'well what were the china cups doing there then', I was told they were for dispensing the plastic cups of coffee into for when VIP visitors came so as to make a good impression. I think I did that all right !!!!
