Mr. Coffee tried to hurt me

This morning my Black & Decker coffee maker started to bubble over the top. I tried to open the lid and it spit at me! A large glob - part water, part coffee grinds - came shooting out of the flip top and landed on my white tee sheet. It burnt my navel. The wet grinds bubbled over like hot magma and dripped all over all my floor. AHHH!! What a mess! Calgon take me away!

I promptly unplugged the damn thing, cleaned up the mess & residue and changed my clothes. Tonight I will murder the bloody appliance and go directly to a PC Richard's tomorrow and buy a new one. I cannot have any more trauma in my life! Least of all concerning my favorite morning beverage!

I hate it when I get spit at first thing in the morning ... well ... OK ... that isn't always true!

Try a BRAUN next time - simply the best!

Doc said...

Do you have a cat door on your closet there?

The Mountain Cat said...

That is not an actual photo of the coffee mishap but it is a dramatization.

My favorite morning beverage almost always spits at me! *evil grin*

Karen said...

And people always ask me why I take the extra time to stop at Starbucks or Dunkin' Dounts in the morning. I refuse to get in to a spitting contest with my coffee maker in the morning.

MtCat-My condolences on the loss of your favorite appliance. Try Gevalia, it perks directly into a carafe so you can take it with you and stays hot for HOURS!!! Plus, you can get a great deal on coffee from them...simply the best!

We just had that same problem recently. Is it a new terrorist offensive? Cheers!!

SitC,
Ky? I thought you were in Manhattan?

Doc said...

"it perks directly into a carafe"

I guarantee that I have never used this combination of words together in my entire life....

Maybe try a French press.

I've switched over to Green Tea in the morning. You gotta get passed the headaches that come with the withdrawal - but lately I've been feeling great!

Doc said...

Man.... That Dr. Pepper I opened up to drink this morning didn't scare, burn, bubble, spit, slosh, glob, imitate magma, or cause any of the other trauma this coffee spitter thingy did to you this morning. The Dr. Pepper was easy and delicious!

Reason # 63547 not to drink coffee...

Next on Fox: "When home appliance attack!"

I voted for Amy Winehouse on the poll. I figure she's the one with the most talent so that makes her biggest train wreck.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc-maybe not, but the sugar is gonna rot your teeth!

Next on Fox: "When home appliance attack!" ROTFL @ Jay!

Doc said...

Jay... Amy is the one IMHO that is closest to a death watch....and heroin is some bad stuff so I voted for her too....

How sad is it that Paris Hilton is probably the least train wrecky of any of these??

Micky-T said...

Coffee machines that fight back,
thats a bad thing!
I hope you kicked it's butt!

Doc- Dr. Peppy in the morning huh?

Doc said...

Micky - It's usually Diet Pepsi but I was feeling sassy this morning...

Lu' said...

Laugh out loud award MtCat. Thanks for the visual :) ha ha ha!

Lu' said...

Doc you should DR P a call, that sounds like a good commercial. Maybe you could get an endorsement deal?

The Mountain Cat said...

'Plop plop,
Fizz Fizz,
Oh what a relief it is,
oooooooohhhhh.'

As much as I love NY and plan on coming there to live when I get out of school! I am in the city in KY, Don't be laughing... Kentucky has a city! LOL!!! So that means I lived deep in the country!!!

You have a spare room, we could be roomies! That is unless you have a boo? I prefer to live next to
Emeril!!!

Doc said...

Breaking News: NY Governor Eliot Spitzer involved in prostitution ring... Now correct me if I am wrong but wasn't this the guy who was going to clean up ethics??

The Mountain Cat said...

Yes Doc, One hooker at a time.

Doc said...

LOL - Now all of our Google ads are for coffee makers... BWAAHAHAHAHAAAAAA !!

You poor thing, I couldn't survive without my morning java.

The Mama Bear said...

Duh, figures I duplicated someone :)

Becky said...

Yipes! Sounds like you have a murderous coffee maker.

The Mountain Cat said...

So today we went from coffee spit to Governor Spit. LOL.

Hammer said...

I was shopping for coffee makers online and the reviewers all said the black and decker was infamous for doing that.
