I have several good teas at my desk, but I rarely drink them. I have only one mug at my desk, and I use it for the endless pots of coffee my company provides. So, every time I want to switch to a cup of hot tea, I have to scrub out my coffee mug. I do clean out my coffee mug every so often, but I feel like I have really scrub the thing clean of all coffee taste to enjoy some tea. That’s easy at home, but not so easy at the office.
The ideal solution is get a second mug. I keep meaning to bring one from home, but I never seem to get around to doing it.
So, I rarely drink tea at work.
This morning, our office building management company threw a holiday party for all the tenants. There were doughnuts, bagels and cream cheese, fruit, coffee, and tea.
They had an ulterior motive. They wanted us all to complete a short survey about our commuting habits, so the building can receive a LEED certification.
Everyone who handed in a completed survey received a mug.
I now have two mugs at my desk.
I’ve been drinking hot tea today.
