    So Im sure weve all heard a theres a fly in my soup joke at some point. But how about theres a cockroach in my coffee ?


    We received this complaint letter from one of our customers a little while ago, and I just wasnt too sure how to respond to their cockroach problem to be honest :)

    Just tell em its a new type of bean that cleans up after itself... :o

    Theyre lucky if the roaches were just in their coffee machine. My friends son and his wife and baby had to move out of their rented house in Frankston because German roaches were in everything from the TV, the door hinges and even the babys toys. They had to leave almost everything behind.

    No amount of fumigating helped.

    I would forward it to the health department or whatever authority deals with food related complaints. I used to work for a cereal manufacturer and we got some doozies. The authorities told us on several occasions to ignore some of the letters we got. I think the important thing is to get the authorities on side.

    Perhaps they should go talk to their landlord and say that they arent happy with their office space and that "it" should be impervious to cockroaches and other Vernon.

    Some people just have no commonsense and need to put the blame on someone else.

    I find it difficult to believe anyone could have written that letter and not realised they had a very basic hygiene issue on their hands, roaches and filth love each other. ;)

    Re: Theres a cockroach in my coffee

    Dear Customer,

    When you ordered the machine we assumed you wanted the tiger proof model and that is what we supplied. Im sure you are happy thus far that your coffee and coffee making area is free of both Sumatran and Bengal Tigers and we have found that in other customer trials finding a cockroach was far preferable to being eaten alive during a coffee break.

    Unfortunately, we know of no manufacturer of "dual action" roach and tiger proof machines so we cannot recommend another model at this time however I have copied Dr Jack Kevorkian into this email as he may be able to provide some long term options to this outrageous pest problem.


    [hr]

    On a personal level, Im really curious (errr and worried for their waiting room customers) where this person used the baits and pesticide spray???

    **shudder**

    Youd want to make sure that they dont learn about tiger mountain as then theyll be on your back about tiger coffee in the machine, grinder and rest of the office

    Re: Theres a cockroach in my coffee

    Some people are just stupid and ridiculous, I swear. I have worked for an online publication writing about class action cases, and there are hundreds of class action lawsuits regarding the most insane things! Of course, the most famous of which that I think a lot of you is familiar with is that class action against McDonalds, blaming the fastfood chains burgers and their food in general for causing obesity. Like, DUH, it ought to be a matter of common sense. Of course fastfood stuff is not healthy. What makes them think otherwise?
