Just Because You Think I’m Done Doesn’t Mean I’m Actually Done. Ask.
I don’t know where you got the idea that I was finished using my paper cup the other day. When you had asked me if you could have it when I was done, I figured you would check back in with me before going behind my back and just taking it. In all honesty, I thought it was weird that you had even asked to use my cup; because usually by the time I’ve finished drinking from it, it’s lost its original form. You know this, because you’ve annoyingly commented on how much I squeeze the cup every time I take a sip. At first I thought you were just using a clever setup to once again make a stupid comment on how I squeeze the cup when I use it, but then you actually took it once you had assumed I was finished.
Well guess what, Tom? I wasn’t finished. I guess over the years you’ve been too busy criticizing me for the way I drink water to actually notice that when I take a paper cup, I use it three, maybe four times. I go back to the water cooler after I finish, and then I refill my cup. This process helps me break up the work day, and it’s something I enjoy doing. Today, your arrogance ruined this for me.
Despite all of this, I still don’t think you’re a bad guy, and I definitely don’t think there is anything inherently wrong with using my paper cup after I’ve finished using it. I just want you to ask me before taking it. I’m going through a lot and I would appreciate the common courtesy.
