I’m not the kind of cool chick who takes her coffee black and sips it leisurely in the corner. No, I’m the chubby girl by the sugar rack who just keeps pouring stuff into her beverage.
At work the coffee is, well, terrible. But sometimes it is needed, so I doctor it up. However, based on my lovely sister’s observations I’ve realized I may go overboard and judgement could come upon me should anyone see the amount of cream and sugar I put in the coffee.
So I discretely put it in my coffee cup, if someone comes in the room I stop pouring and stir until they leave. I know, its silly, but it is a lot of creamer.
All this is to say I have been accused of being too sweet, too kind and too trusting.
When is it too much cream and sugar? When should I put up my defenses and when should I let my instincts of believing most everyone is good if you give them a chance lead me?
Should I switch to no cream and sugar for my work coffee (metaphorically speaking, definitely not literally. That would be gross)?
