TRAGEDY STRIKES THE DUST BUNNY PALACE.

The only bad thing about someone else making the coffee in the morning is that you don't know when the coffee grounds run out until its too late.  6:00 am is too late.  It doesn't help when the empty coffee ground can gets put back on the cart, giving the false impression that there is something in it.  Imagine my surpise when I peeled back the cover with anticipation only to discover that the can was empty.  The disappointment, the utter dispair... the horror!

I know it sounds pathetic, but I have the can beside me, and every now and then I'll crack the lid and take a big, deep, cleansing breath, filling my lungs up the with lingering aroma of ground coffee.  I'm hoping the fragrant scent will hold me over until I can get out and buy some more coffee.  I don't say this often, but today, right here, right now, at this very moment... it sucks to be me!

Last night Dickidoo brought home some beer from the liquor store.  Its funny, I never realized just how bad off we were financially until my husband brought home a brown bag with two 40 oz. bottles of... (gasp!) Budweiser beer!   

No real beer, and now no coffee.  Its definitely time to get my butt back to work.

Oh NO!!!!!! I'm sorry to hear you're going back to work, but I do understand!!! Now look around the coffeepot and see if you can scrape up enough grounds to make a cup.....:) Penny

I had the same thing happen in the past.  I have fixed it... I went to wally world and bought a clear lock and save (has a good seal to keep grounds fresh) -- and it's see through.. so even if it is setting there empty.. I can see it and not be 'surprised'   :)  I wonder why coffee can's aren't clear with screw off lids... things that make you go.. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I guess I'm lucky, no one ever makes coffee except me , so I always know when I run out. Sorry.

I agree with Sandi, and do keep my own personal stash in the freezer. Almost as bad as no coffee, is the watered down result when I've made it the night before, and HE waters it down before I'm up. Lol. Have a good day Jody. Cheri
