The Importance of Coffee Placement

While traveling recently, I was reminded of a hotel oddity that has bothered me for some time. Why do they insist on putting the coffeemaker – and all the ingredients – in the bathroom? What’s up with that?!

I tried to figure out the logic behind this, but the best I can come up with is that they thought it ought to be near a sink, even if the wrong kind of sink. Still, it seems odd to me to store foodstuff (coffee, sugar, creamer) in the bathroom. It strikes me as less than hygienic, even with the little paper hats on the cups.

The whole situation just makes me glad I’m a tea person :)
