An Office Story

Let me preface this story with this. Very few people in my office have taken the time to learn how to make coffee.  It's really a simple process, but whatever.  If someone else will take care of it why should they worry.
This morning I went into the break room to pour myself a cup of warm coffee goodness.  And, as I'm pouring the sweet nectar from the practically full pot I noticed something odd.  The coffee seems to be exceptionally clear this morning.  In fact, it almost looks like water.  It was at that point that I realized that it was, in fact, just warm water.  I thought it rather odd so I poured out the water and checked the coffee filter basket, assuming someone forgot to put coffee and a filter in the filter basket.  Sure enough though there was a filter and coffee in there.  The problem was whomever was attempting to make coffee had put whole beans in the filter, forsaking the coffee grinder which sits on the break room counter.  I almost laughed out loud.
Now, maybe I'm a coffee snob, or maybe I just expect a little too much from people, but really?  Whole beans?  If that person had stopped to think they would have realized the error of their ways. Right?  Am I way off here? What do you think?
