    Doncha hate when this happens??

    so my wife found an amazing deal on Brita water filters - we bought a huge box, so we're set with filters for some time, and we saved a bundle.

    yesterday she took apart our jumbo dispenser to clean it, but accidentally dropped it and the main plastic tray broke into about five pieces.....so now we gotta go buy a new one, to the tune of $40ish.

    easy come, easy go.....

    It didn't happen to me with a water filter, but I broke the pot from my coffee maker, and even though I didn't necessarily care for the model I bought a new pot... about 3 weeks later the coffee maker quit working. So, then I felt committed to getting the same style coffee maker to replace it.

    That one has now quit (about 4 years later) so I bought the same one, since I know I have the spare, plus the one that came with the "new one" I now have a coffee maker with 3 available pots, and I don't like any of them (I always seem to get coffee on the counter when I pour my coffee.

    In 30 years when I die, someone will wonder why I love this style so much, and they'll never know that I actually hate it.

    Speaking of which, is there a secret to pouring coffee to keep from wasting some on the counter (I am not over filling the cup, it just dribbles down the side of the pot) Am I pouring too fast or too slow, or am I just ********??? I should be able to pour coffee since I have been drinking it for over 30 years.

    Leave your wrist relaxed. I find if I tighten my wrist, I tend to lean the pot left or right a bit as I pour, and get spillage. The first cup has to be poured slow. I bet you have a Mr. Coffee, like mine, the thing was made to pour coffee onto counters.

    I think it is just the badly designed cheap pots - we have a Procter silex that does that. The first one is a pain. I pour the coffee by the sink - cups on the edge and the pot over the sink, so when it does its thing, it goes into the sink instead.

    I swear, you fat-cats with your uppity ditch water. When I was young, all we had to drink was our own sweat and urine. The happiest day of my childhood was that one day it rained in 1983.

    You guessed it on the brand... So, relaxed wrist, first cup slow. I'll try that.

    Your comment about it being made to pour coffee onto counters makes me feel a little less dim witted. I may actually be dim witted, but we know self esteem is the important thing.

    Thanks!

    well, I call it a ditch, but it is really just an old septic tank that the cover had caved in on. We used to dream of drinking nice fresh urine, and did not even dream of sweat.

    You were lucky. When I say urine and sweat, I was merely speaking of special occasions. Normally we had to keep hydrated by squeezing moisture out of cow manure and pig dung. We could not have even dreamed of being fortunate enough to have a septic tank for drinking water. We had it TOUGH.

    You tell that to kids these days, and they would not believe you.
