It seems that coffee and desperation go hand in hand. A quick browse through the social media chatter reveals plenty of people who will go to considerable lengths, simply to get their hands on a cup coffee.

I like the first one, about using paper towels instead of a coffee filter, as I have done the same myself. Ditto cotton handkerchiefs (unused). And, on one occasion, a sock.

My lowest moment as a coffee lover came when I made instant coffee with hotel water from a tap in a hotel bathroom. Truly disgusting.

Here is what I found on Twitter and Facebook.

# Speaking of coffee filters, I made one with a paper towel this morning. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

# Stressing...The Fresh Market Grocers is OUT OF Pumpkin Spice Coffee! How can that be??? The checkout girl had no clue how desperate I am!

# i broke the plunger but was so desperate for coffee this morning that i fashioned a make-shift one using a sieve. take that, bodum.

# You know your desperate when You'll drink vending machine coffee

# On my way to work this morning, I saw a woman get out of her car at a gas station...in her BATHROBE! Guess she was desperate for coffee.

# no milk at home, no milk at the corner store or cvs, so i put whipping cream in my coffee.

# Must be desperate! Drinking instant coffee and somehow enjoying it??? I don't think stranger things HAVE happened!

# I may possibly run out of gas in the longest drive through Starbucks line I have ever been in. But I am in desperate need of coffee...

Instant coffee -- without the water
by: Anonymous

Instant coffee without the water. Turns out that Starbucks Via straight out of the packet is not so bad when flavored with desperation.

Morning coffee wait out

Vacationing, staying at someone's home. Being an early riser I like my coffee first thing while checking emails. Having to wait for the house to wake before getting a coffee is nail bitting
