Disruptive Information Flow

I walked to my boss’s cube to say something when I found several folk having a heated discussion on something.¬† The boss was mid-rant¬† about how they’d have to work without interruption day or night after it was done he asked
Boss: Terry, what did you need?
Me: Nothing really, I just found out the guys across the hall have more variety at their coffee machine than us.
Boss: Why didn’t you tell me sooner!

Note to self: superior coffee and notes on office politicking goes above things marked important enough that he’ll have to work day and night.
