There's something worse to forget...
Had that happen last summer when we had that moron working on my office. He did that very thing.

That was the LAST time he was allowed to touch my coffeemaker.

I was trying to fill the sugar container up with sugar once and I accidently poured it into my coffee cup. Thankfully, this was before I put the coffee in my cup...

Least it wasn't something worse, Irv. About fifteen different things that could be found in the kitchen have already gone through my mind, and made me shudder.

coffee flavored coffee (unheard of in a lot of places where he lives I guess).
While a little bit of comic-hyperbole, he's not wrong. Sometimes it can be really damn hard to just get a cup of coffee. I don't want a latte, or a mocha, or any such things (fine, but I don't want 'em). Don't want creamer or milk. Don't want syrups. Don't want anything but the coffee.

Which is why I brew my own pot every morning and bring a thermos to work.

At my hotel one of the brain-dead front desk clerks wanted to re-heat her cup of coffee. How? By pouring it BACK THROUGH the coffee maker! So when I went to make guest coffee in the morning, and started with just making hot water for tea, I got what looked like coffee....And checked the reservoir and found COFFEE! She was all innocent like "ooooo, that's not how you're supposed to do it?"

And it's stuff like that that makes me glad I'm the only person in my house who drinks coffee.

Let's just say the news headline would read "Local Woman Goes Beserk With Coffeepot"

Once, I went to a Moxie Java and asked for a cup of ordinary, harmless, decaf coffee with milk. The woman working there was shocked. She'd never heard of such a thing.

down here those are known as either long blacks, short blacks or flat whites. Don't ask me why. >.>

I prefer a hot chocolate, but will occasionally have a mocha if I need a boost.

I've grabbed the wrong packet in the fridge some mornings, and poured yoghurt into my tea.

I'm also a member of the things-tasting-like-the-things-lobby, and hate flavored teas with a passion. I want my tea to taste like tea, and not like rosehip-and-herring-flavour. And it will inevitably taste like rosehip-and-herring-flavour, which only vaguely resembles the flavour of rosehips and herring.

I don't drink coffee, and usually have it premade if I do. But I have one time put salt on my pizza when I meant to put garlic powder in. Lemme tell ya, that was the grossest pizza I ever had.
Sounds like the Pumpkin Pie they served on my last navy ship one day... First off it was pan-style which... we're use to cos it's easier for them to make it that way.

BUT... pumpkin pie is NOT suppose to be salty.

I was in S-bucks yesterday after work for a half-price frappuccino, and while I was waiting the poor barista was calling out a bunch of overly-complicated drinks (every single modifier, milk type, etc). After 3 of these (and one customer saying "That must get old.") she started saying "tall half-caf skinny mocha blah blah blah." Nobody seemed to notice over the general noise and everyone (that I saw) got what they were supposed to.
