In the interest of fairness and accuracy, it is my pleasure to report here that the little brouhaha on coffee restrictions in the office have been pleasantly cleared up to everyone’s satisfaction. Our boss clarified that he never issued such a policy and it turns out that it was just some sort of an unofficial advisory from the finance people concerned over the overhead expenses. The boss himself clarified that he’s very much willing to let the staff have all the coffee they want and offered to hook us up on I.V. drip if we want. So that’s that.
After that’s been cleared up, one of the staunchest opponents of the coffee rule found out that she’s pregnant, and so can’t drink coffee anyway. One of life’s little jokes. That, and the five-day workweek.
