Major upset at the office today when employees learned that there was no sugar for their morning coffees.
“I think the whole building is suffering a shortage,” one man said. “People kept coming over when I was making coffee, and saying, ‘Oh, you guys are out too.'”
Yes, it was pandemonium as the realization dawned that the substandard sweetener, Sweet N Low, would have to be supplemented. Or, in the most extreme of cases, no sweeteners at all.
“Sweet N Low is horrible. It doesn’t even dissolve in your coffee,” another employee is quoted in saying. No, anonymous office staffer. No, it doesn’t. This reporter’s Columbian Supremo was sampled and quickly tossed before hurrying down to the nearest convenience store and purchased some of 7-11’s finest, returning to cheers and proclamations of “You’re my savior!”
Yours truly didn’t think that purchasing sugar was quite on par with dying for the sins of all mankind, but remained silent.
