It was cold morning in sunny L.A. and your local Starbucks line was giving In-N-Out Burger a run for its money. You were already 15 minutes late to work, and you were trying to make a good impression on your boss (or at least trick him into thinking you’d be at work on time).
So, you ditched the Starbucks and grabbed the random coffee mug sitting below your car’s passenger seat. You Googled how to use your office’s Keurig machine and made yourself a semi-passable morning joe.
But you wish you hadn’t. Because after your coworkers saw you drinking from your clay cup, you were labeled as a coffee-connoisseur and not even in the cool “I can guess your Starbucks order if you tell me your star sign” kind of way! Now, every gift you ever receive involves a cleverly wrought mug.
It wasn’t all bad. The first one you received revealed a middle finger at the bottom whenever a hot liquid was poured in. It’s actually pretty funny that you got it from Tina in HR…
Then there was the Cookie Monster cup with a small hollow area where cookies could be placed—very practical. After that, it was downhill.
There were at least three “Don’t talk to me until I had my morning coffee” mugs and at least four more with annoyed cats. You’re not a mean person, so you take them and smile, saying, “Oh, wow… this is… so great.” Then you take them home and shove them in your kitchen cupboard, next to the spices you bought but never use.
The problem is, you’re running out of room. Your cup truly runneth over. After the latest holiday season, your cupboard is packed to the brim. You even have some mugs with mild insults, like how you’re not a morning person. (Don’t forget to set a Google Calendar reminder to eat Todd’s lunch. That’ll teach him). You don’t have any room for actual kitchen sets, and 2019 is the year you’re supposed to become Rachel Ray!
