    Don't know which is the worst part in a situation like this...having to clean off your desk, or not getting to drink your coffee.
     
  4. Probably both... :D It could have been worst:

    Grrrr! Coffee abuse! This makes me sad. What kind of coffee was it? Maybe the pain will subside if I know it was just foldgers via auto drip.....

    (clearly not concerned about your desk :rolleyes)

    I wear sneakers to work, they have mesh around them because they are "breathable". I spilled coffee at work a few weeks ago and where does it land? all on my shoe! Right through the mesh, soaks my sock. Walked around with a coffee soaked foot most of the day.

    24oz? I'd never get that finished while still hot enough to drink. Jim you keep upping the bar!
     
  10. When I lived in New England I had to pre-heat my coffee mugs in winter just so that the coffee wouldn't instantly turn lukewarm upon being poured out.

    It's having to clean up the coffee, without having any coffee in you. I cap my coffee cups at 6-8 oz. I'd rather drink four hot cups than have a lukewarm 8 oz and 4 oz that would probably be stone cold.

    When I was a young my father drove an F100 before they called it a Ranger on his forty minute commute from Mobile AL to Dauphin Island. I have clear memories of him pouring coffee from a green Stanley thermos into a ceramic 6oz coffee cup held between his knees while driving. Only thinking back on it do I realize what a terrible idea that is. I never did see him spill, but I'm sure it happened.

    I use a Thermos high vacuum stainless travel tumbler. have to leave the lid off it for a while so that It can be consumed within the first hour. If I cap it right away, I can't drink if tor a couple hours.
