Dirty caffeine tricks...

Dear cow-orkers,

Kindly do not turn off the coffee machine in the kitchen in the middle of the day. Doing so will confuse the insufficiently caffeinated, who will see the green "ready" light glowing, put some fresh coffee in a filter and a clean pot under the basket, press "start," and walk away. When they return a few minutes later and find nothing has changed, instead of a full pot of fresh coffee, they will be both unhappy and perplexed.

Thank you for your kind attention,
