I Have No Problem With You Using My Paper Cup After I'm Finished, Just Ask Me Before You Assume I'm Done, Tom

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.
