Do you know anyone in your office like this?
At the data-entry company where I work, the other operators and I share a coffeepot.
One morning I took it into the ladies room to fill it with water. Then I began preening in the mirror, brushing my hair and reapplying some makeup.
I didn't realize how long I'd been until someone slid a note under the door.
"You win," it read. "Any ransom demand will be met. Just release the coffeepot."
