Another way to not get coffee

I thought that many years ago I had discovered (by "denial and error" as Ricky from the Trailer Park Boys would say) all the ways of not getting coffee from my automatic drip coffee maker:

  1. Not filling the carafe with water from the faucet;
  2. Filling the carafe with water from the faucet, but not pouring that water into the reservoir of the coffee maker;
  3. Putting water in the reservoir, but not putting coffee in the filter basket;
  4. Putting water in the reservoir and coffee in the filter basket, but forgetting to turn on the coffee maker; and
  5. Putting water in the reservoir and coffee in the filter basket, turning on the coffee maker, but not plugging in the coffee maker.

I thought that was it, a 5-item list, but yesterday morning, while perhaps more groggy than usual, I discovered a sixth method of not getting coffee:

  1. A dramatized recreation of the once thought legendary 6th-method of not getting coffeePutting water in the reservoir and coffee in the filter basket, turning on the plugged-in coffee maker, but pouring into an upside-down mug.

It's a sure shot way to wake up and stop feeling groggy, atleast!

yes, that's why this morning I went back to method #4.

Are you saying that after number 6 you went ahead with number 4 as well?

David Scrimshaw said...

Yes, but on different days. Thursday - #6; Sunday - #4. Lately, #4 is my most common method of not getting coffee.
