The scenario presented in today’s comic strip is ripped from the headlines of my life. I use my travel mug at the office, and I haven’t washed it since I got back to work in September. My theory is this: I only drink black coffee, I finish my one cup of black coffee every day (so it sits empty) and there’s no cream or liquid left to sit and fester in there. Also, I rinse it with boiling water before I put more coffee in it, so it’s not as bad as it sounds in the comic, right?
using a travel mug at the office has been a game changer for me. I am infamous for spilling anything on myself for no reason at all and it really cuts down on that. Also, I used to be horrible at leaving dirty mugs around my desk and now I only have one travel mug!
