I’ve been sucked into the computer almost as much as Jeff Bridges. Worse yet my coffee grounds have run out. I almost canceled on the Boy Scouts this weekend but that is a commitment just as strong as my commitments to my clients. And I have one! I have work that must be complete by the morning so I went by Sam’s and bought enough coffee grounds for 360 cups of coffee! (That should get me through the night!) Unfortunately, when I got home and took the lid off, the safety seal was not correctly secured. The tab usually used to open the seal was folded under so this looked like a manufacturing defect. I know bad people have put bad things in products in the past but I really doubt this coffee is tainted so I was tempted to use it. What I don’t know, is how long the product sat in storage and shipping. Coffee deteriorates quickly so I’ll return it tomorrow but man I could use a pot of joe right now!

Update: Folgers is sending me coupons to replace the coffee I purchased. They implored me to disposed of the grounds. Now I have to find something creative to do with the grounds. Instead of returning it to Sam’s Wholesale Club, I am to wait 2-3 weeks for the coupons then I can get more coffee. Hmm. Btw, if you call their 800 number, they’ll happily send you coupons and samples.
