The Case of the Missing Cola

We have a dorm fridge at the office. We keep a few Cokes and ginger ales in there. I drink maybe one a month. Co-worker probably fewer than that. It’s nice to have if you want one and if we have guests we have something to offer.

Not too long ago co-worker restocked the Coke and it seems like just a few weeks later it was down to one.

One thing I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten older is that I have little concept of the passage of time. Sometimes I’ll think of something as brand new and then realize we’ve had it for 3 years.

This week I mentioned to co-worker that we had only one Coke and maybe bring more in. I asked if he drinks Coke when I’m not around because I can’t remember the last time I saw him with one.

He said he thought I drank it all.

At first we thought the cleaning people must be drinking them but it didn’t make sense because if they were going to pilfer sodas, there are probably larger offices where it wouldn’t be so obvious. Plus they would be easy to bust and seems like a stupid way to lose your job.

Now we think maybe it was from when we had a group working on a project in the office and we just lost track.

Keep in mind we aren’t upset about this it was just funny that we both thought it was the other one.

I thought this story would be a lot more interesting when I started typing it but no time to come up with something better. I got to get this day started.
