Not too long ago, the boss held a staff meeting in which he declared it was beyond his authority to justify staff due for paying for such items as dishwashing detergent. X-mas party is coming up and each branch is expected to contribute a center piece item. He went to pick up something worth $20. Today he haggled his staff to cough up $2.50 because that's what the math comes out to when he divides nu
Ber of employees by 20

Sigh, office coffee should be free in my book. Coffee makes employees happy (not to mention the boost of energy it gives them which equals more productivity), and it's such a small price to pay in the general scheme of things. Giving your employees free coffee would undoubtedly return on the investment in slightly happier employees who don't feel their employer is "sticking it to them."

Well that's my two cents on that matter.

I agree. At first, I only asked for donations. Now i'm asking for contributions. I'm still planning on supplying the espresso pods, but everything will still remain out on the open (the honor system.) I do feel kind of good when I realize the coffee is disappearing without compensation. I pretend it's the result of having coffee with people at my expense without needing to be present. I was never good at asking peeps out for coffee.

Your label makes perfect sense, though I think it only gets use by you and your librarian. I can never remember the necessary steps to make an espresso plus without milk and white mocha syrup it means nothing to me. I'm happy with my instant folgers.
As for the $2.50 I still don't think it's a big deal unless you're using it to justify your charge for espresso.

That's what it seems like. The milk I bring must go sour b4 I through it out. However, I don't expect reimbursement for that, and understandably expect caffein addicts to help themselves to that and the brown sugar. Because transporting gallons of milk is a little difficult, maybe I expect too much from others when I secretly wish they'd participate in the shopping.

As it has been for a while most everyone there buys their own groceries. I buy my own juice, water, lunch, coffee, and creamer. They've asked if they can have a little of whatever I've brought sporadically, never habitually, unless what I've brought has been specifically to share. Why expect, especially with how grouped we all are now, for that to change and everyone to pitch in and share? Idealistically that would be nice, but it's not likely to happen.
