Small cups from now on

I just spilled coffee all over my desk.

There are two cup sizes over by the coffee machine on my project now. For the last couple of days, I've been getting the larger size to minimize the number of times I go over to the machine. So, of course, it was a large cup of coffee. All over... Everything. Luckily most of it is replaceable and it's only paper. I might get a strange look from the mechanical engineer when I give him back the datasheets that are now covered in a brown tint. I'll just tell him that I kept them so long, they aged on my desk! :)

I'm going to use the small cups again from now on.

I did that a few weeks ago, only it was diet coke and got all over my keyboard. I unplugged it and wiped up as much as I could and waited awhile for it to dry out. Luckily nothing shorted out.

Learning something from the experience, like not drinking close to the computer sounds like a good idea.

I'll tell you where you went wrong. You tried to minimize the amount of times to go over to the machine. In the workplace, it's a well known law, the second law of glutiodynamics, the less time you spend on your ass, the more available and satisfying the coffee.
