Thanks for stopping by and checking out this awesome post about DIY workplace coffee mugs!
It’s been years since I’ve actually worked in an office with other people. I’ve been solo for going on 6 years now, but I still totally remember how irritated I would get when someone in the office jacked my things. If you’ve ever worked with other people, I know you know exactly what I’m talking about.
You place your sandwich in the refrigerator. It has a post it note with your name on it and the date (just in case that one person who wigs out and deep cleans the fridge at totally random times decides it’s a purge day!). You’ve done everything you can, really. But when you go to the machines and grab a bag of chips and head to the fridge you get one crappy disappointment. Your sandwich is gone. And then you look in the trash t see your post it right on top. Looks like I’m having just chips for lunch… jerk.
And coffee mugs are even worse. Everybody brings their own and they sit in the cabinet. And everybody is only supposed to have one in that cabinet because it’s not like we have enough room in this little kitchenette for each of the 80 people in this office to have 2 or 3. But when you start digging around for yours you realize someone has jacked it. What is even worse is when you see the person with it and say “hey, buddy, why are you using my mug?” and it is explained to you that it isn’t your mug it belongs to them often with a nasty tone. Oh, sorry, Dan. I didn’t realize you also had a hand painted mug with cats that says “Allison” on it. My bad, dude.
I’ve gone off on a tangent haven’t I? It’s been ages and I’m freshly ticked off all over again!
At any rate I found these super awesome attack mugs and made one so that every single person in an entire county courthouse will know belongs to RUSSELL. Because if you touch his mug, you’re nuts. See how to make your own at Mom Spark! I promise it’s more tutorial and less rant :)
