Making coffee: Mom vs. Dad
Dad: Dump out (most) of the old coffee grounds from the filter.
Mom: Dump out the old coffee grounds from the filter. Rinse filter thoroughly for two minutes.
Dad: Measure out specific number of scoops of coffee in to filter.
Mom: Dump an unspecific amount of coffee in to filter. Ask seven times if it looks “right”.
Dad: Fill (mostly) empty carafe with water. Pour slightly murky water in to machine.
Mom: Pour out any old coffee from carafe. Wash carafe with soap and water. Fill carafe until it looks “about right”.
Dad: Turn machine on.
Mom: Forget to turn machine on. Check the machine in 15 minutes and wonder why there is no coffee. Realize mistake and tell everyone that it’s just a slow coffee maker.
Now…who’s coffee would you rather drink?
