View Full Version : My Crunchy Coffee Mystery....

So about a week ago... I noticed something odd in my morning coffee.. little crunchy bits that aren't normally there. I shrugged and passed it off as creamer that didn't melt, and went about my day. Well this continued for several days. I start to suspect bad creamer or faulty coffee filters or my own lack of washing my coffee mug/pot.

So I go home and wash my mug, wash the coffee pot, and run a cycle of water through the coffee maker.

Next morning, get to work... crunch..... hmmm.... crunch...

Finally I popped open my coffee mug, and noticed a few small black ants floating on top.... Ahh ha... that explains things...

The next morning I make coffee, now on the lookout for trespassing ants... None found in the coffee maker or the pot, and I rinse my mug out to be sure. I fill up my mug, add a little creamer and a shot of syrup, and off to work.

Crunch...crunch.. more ants... WTF? Scoop em out and go on with the morning...

I go home and check the pot, maker, mug, and the creamer. No ants. Where the hell are they comin from?

Next morning.... crunch.... f*ck! Strain out more ants and go about my morning...

I go back home... determined to find the source of this ant invasion. I empty the cupboards by the coffee pot. Clean everything. Scrub the floors. Scrub the walls. Wash the coffee maker again. Check the coffee, the filters, the creamer, and my mug again. I'm ready to pound any little ant I see... No sign of the sneaky little bastards.

Next morning.... crunch.... Sonofa!! Scoop out more ants... not liking this new morning routine...

That night... I finally find the source of the problem....

Next post....

How did you not notice that before? Do you close your eyes while preparing your coffee?

Other than the ants, what's in the bottle?

There are many mornings when yes.... I make coffee with my eyes closed.... my kitchen is also quiet dark in the mornings..

I'm really not a morning person...


It was Almond syrup in the bottle.....

Why would you ruin a good cup of coffee with that?

Pour some antifreeze in there and they'll die.

Finally ...

Let me get this straight. The second time you noticed the crunchy texture, you thought about it before proceeding to drink and chew some more? No wonder it took you a week to find the source.

I pissed in your pot.

We once brought a cooler full of jungle juice on a canoe trip. Needless to say it didnt take the little boogers very long to find that stickyness.

Lucky for us they floated and the spout was at the bottom of the cooler.

They added much needed nutrients to our otherwise three day nutritionless drunken outing.

So after the first few days, you didn't check the one sweet item you put in the coffee?

Two things..
1: How the **** do you not notice that through the glass... especially for many consecutive days.

2: How the **** could you be looking for ants and not think to check the syrup?

Did you notice the words "common sense" or "obvious" or "logical choice" anywhere in my post?

If I would have been using my brain the story would have been much less interesting....

I honestly never once thought to check the syrup.... never crossed my mind till I had to move the bottle to clean the cupboard it was sitting on....

Don't you put things IN a cupboard?

I don't know if you guys have ever seen me make short jokes about Fish. He's just slightly taller than Vern Troyer. Of course he doesn't put things in the cupboard.

Do you not put a lid on the syrup? And how did you not glance in that direction sometime during the week? Perhaps in the frantic cleaning of the coffee prep area....

The problem when you are short is that other people like to put things in the cupboard. On the top shelf. Where you don't realize they are until you need them and are in the middle of cooking. :cuss:

That's it.... you shitheads can pick the ant parts out of my ass....

I'm gonna go make some coffee....

What, do you think it's all fun and games being tall? Among other things, you're constantly banging your head on stuff and short people are always asking you to reach things for them. It's a real pain in the ass to be honest.

I'm not buying that. I still hit my head often. And people expect us to go into small spaces. When I was a teenager I had to crawl into a two-room doghouse after a frisbee because the dog wouldn't get it and I was the smallest person available.

A few days ago my manager was considering mounting some running boards on our side of the counter so he could see over.


And Fish... wtf man?!?!
