I Bide My Time While Biting My Tongue
Say you're having an informal departmental lunch for about ten people. The lunch is taking place in a room adjacent to the kitchen. Almost everyone in the office automatically detours to the kitchen for a beverage before entering the kitchen.
Given these parameters, would you place cold drinks in the lunch room AN HOUR AND A FREAKING HALF before the lunch starts?
I know I would. After all, it makes perfect sense: everyone I know loves warm soda drunk from cans and bottle. Also, the support services woman absolutely adores cleaning puddles from the middle of the huge lunchroom table. It's so convenient, even enjoyable and so totally her job.
