The Work Dialogues: Coffee Hunt

This morning I wasn't able to get my Starbucks, I was running late and I had a meeting. So there are like six coffee makers in my building, but every pot have a different type of coffee, whether its a different flavor or strength. So since I am a Starbucks Junkie, I never drink the "office coffee" but I had no choice this morning. So while I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off, trying to find the perfect coffee in one out of the six pots. My co-worker stops me in the middle of my coffee hunt, the dialogue went a bit like this:

CO: Hey, do you really NEED coffee? I mean just drink some tea.

ME: Ummmm, but I don't want tea and yes this morning I WANT coffee.

CO: Well I have some GOOD tea on hand, that sure will GET you going!

ME: Oh! No, thanks!

CO: Why are you so BLAH, this morning, cheer up!

ME: (SMIRKING) I'm so BLAH, because I haven't had a good ole cup of Joe, now if you would excuse me--I NEED to go and find my coffee. Have a good day!

But I really wanted to say, I drink coffee because I am not a morning person OR BETTER YET:

Me and my best friend Lolita have this sign plastered over everything and anything, from facebook to coffee mugs to mousepads, etc.
It is direct and to the point.
There's also the Garfield : "I'd like mornings if they started later"

.. and "Good morning is a contradiction in terms"

Oh and this one for the times when people are really annoying before 10am .. lol

Anyhow, being a Starbucks addict myself I totally get where you're coming from. I started a new job 3 months ago and there's no coffee machine and no starbucks anywhere close by,you can imagine my desperation !
