Fearless Leader’s office is on my way to the kitchen so I wait until he runs his “errands” at lunch time before I go to rinse my coffee cup and refill it with hot water for my afternoon tea.
He’s always staring at me when I walk by his office door, trying to make eye contact, form the slightest emotional bond. I avoid this non-spoken interaction at all costs. AT ALL COSTS.
I’m also very pleased to announce that even though we have a kitchen in our office space, we have no sink. I first need to leave our space and walk to the building’s communal kitchen area to dispose of any left over morning coffee…and…then return to avoid his glances.
We do have a fridge (that I never use), a microwave, and a toaster oven but alas, no sink. Fearless Leader assumed we’d never need a drain of some sort. Because when you have all other major appliances (sans stove), cleaning up is the last thing you’d want to do.
Hinkley Springs brings big bottles of water twice a month because the landlord advises tenants to “not drink the water” from the communal tap.
What about the microwave you ask? Well, there is indeed an upcoming story on that front.
We also have a one foot high garbage can that I refuse to use. All my trash either goes home or to the communal kitchen. Does it surprise you that our can is overflowing constantly because nobody ever takes it out? It shouldn’t but it does explain why I never use it.
