You hate it with a passion. You can’t live without it. It’s office coffee.

Bad office coffee

Bad office coffee

People are quick to tweet about their displeasure when it comes to office coffee.

Which is not surprising, because we all hate office coffee. We hate the fact that the coffee used is cheap and nasty. We hate making it. We hate the guy who pours a cup before the brewing cycle is finished. We hate everyone who leaves half an inch of coffee in the pot and doesn’t make another brew. We hate washing up the pot and handling the messy filter full of cold, wet grinds.

It’s no wonder people leave post-it notes scribbled with veiled threats. Or that people turn to Twitter and Facebook to vent their frustrations.

This is what happens when you are addicted to something, and the people around you don’t play nice.

Here are just a few of the things people have been saying on Twitter over the last 24 hours.

# cannot decide whether to go to starbucks or drink the office coffee. starbucks = far away, office coffee = awful. what to do, what to do...

# If you're one of those people who empties the office coffee pot and doesn't refill it-you aren't getting raptured tomorrow.

# Not washing your hands after going #2 and then making a pot of coffee the entire office drinks, is not okay!

# if the office coffee machine died, storm into boss' office, demand immediate replacement-no waiting for repair. Mission Critical.

# Sad part of my day: when my good coffee from the store runs out and I have to refill with the swill in office coffee machine. yuck

# Why is office coffee always like sludge? How do you repeatedly mess up coffee?

# Our office coffee tastes like torched pencil shavings.

# Office coffee maker broken. There is no reason to attempt to continue to work.

# I think someone spiked the office coffee with laziness and disinterest.

# sadly the office "coffee" makes my stomach churn b/c it's not normal people coffee, but mutant sales people coffee.

# Sometimes our office coffee machine makes more "breathing" type brewing noise than usual, like it's thirsty and angry at the same time!

# Finally got to the bottom of who bought cheap office coffee I suggest injecting them with rancid Maxwell House into their carotid artery

# Track him or her down, then force-feed office coffee! ... Wait, that might be a tad too inhumane...

Envy the few fortunate souls who have an office with a Keurig Office Pro.
