    My dh has learned to just go ahead & make my coffee for me when we're in our RV for the summer. Way too many steps before drinking said coffee, beans in grinder, grinding beans, grounds in the french press, pouring boiling water into fp, pouring creamer in mug, waiting for brewing, brew to mug. I inevitably screw something up!! Bless his heart he knows whats important!

    My DH made coffee one morning with the carafe still in the dish drainer. I came out to coffee everywhere! Don't know why the automatic brewing didn't stop when the pot was missing.

    Sounds like somthing I would do. Last week I put the coffee in , poured the water in the reserve and turned it on. Then I went on the do other things while waiting, heard coffer running over and couldn't figure out why the noise wasn't right. I didn't put the glass pot under the drain. COFFEE every where. I had a mess to clean up and then start over. With the cost of coffee now, what a waste.

    Sounds like stuff a good friend and I do.

    We only tell each other what we do because others would think we've lost it.

    I made coffee,got milk out...so all set, went to get dressed.
    Came back in kitchen & no coffee to be found....no coffee pot! Now I knew I'd made coffee,cause the milk was on the counter,ready to use. UH OH....yep it was & the coffee Pot was in the fridge.
    I don't tell this to too many ppl,

    I can so relate. I was putting groceries away and couldn't find something I knew I bought, I kept looking around and found it in the freezer and the bag of frozen veggies in the pantry...what was I thinking? Fortunately, it was still frozen. :oops:
