Decaffeinated coffee used to make my stomach hurt. They may have improved the process in the decades since I last had any, but I'm not interested in artificially manipulated food. Decaffeinated coffee is like fat free butter, or alcohol free scotch.

I've often wanted to go postal on some of the caffeine junkies in the office. They make _me_ jittery. If you can't function at 9AM without a quart of hi-test coffee flowing through your veins, you're one fucked up unit.

Nancy boy! When you can't drink beer, coffee is proof God loves us.

We only drink decaf at home. Now, my guests usually only drink decaf too, because generally those are the only beans we have in the house.

Interestingly, nobody seems to notice the difference, taste-wise. What they notice is that there is no pick-me-up 20 minutes later.

Fortunately we have a machine which makes our coffee cup by cup, so unless the bean filler fills the machine with the wrong beans, then I don't have to worry about this.

What I do is mix them together. That way, the decaf drinkers get a dose of caffeine and go crazy AND the juicers only get a half dose and go crazy.

I don't drink coffee, and I'm so thankful for that. Hearing the coffee drinkers in the office complain about empty pots is funny to me.

You never want to deprive an accountant of their coffee. Otherwise accidents...happen.

It's a little late to be an april fool's joke so this was a criminal act. Should be a class II felony.
