one way valve said the funny thing of the coffee

24 Feb 2018

one way valve informs you, there is an interesting thing happened when I still work at my previous company. There is a vending machine place outside the office, sometime I will buy the instant coffee from this vending machine. But for one day, after I bought two bags instant coffee from vending machine, then taken my cup to pantry to make coffee, and I discover a tall girl filling up her cup with water from water dispenser. Because there is only one pantry for this floor, and I do not pay attention to her. This company is big, but I am not familiar with most of colleagues. Due to this indifferent relationship among people, even we have worked together for several years, and I only remember their appearance.

She was watching me to make coffee, and I do not look at her, but I can feel that she stared at me. And then, I raise my head and smile at her, when I am looking at her, I found she has small eyes, the tall nose, but the eyebrows are beautiful. Then she smile at me, dramatically, she use her eight degree high voice ask me:” Do you love to drink coffee?” However, her voice has scared me at that time, and I answer her “yes”. “I can give some coffee to you, and you are no need to buy instant coffee”, she said. Then she put down her cup, and run out of pantry as like an antelope. At this moment, I was stunned. After a while, she excitedly takes drip coffee and put it in my hand.

“It’s rare to see who love to drink coffee.” She said but without look at me. I just feel that funny, and say many thanks to her, then go out the pantry and come back to office, sit down at the working desk.

Suddenly, I felt this strangeness of goodwill brought inexplicable warmth to me. I do not concentrate for quite a while. It was quickly learned by my colleagues, and someone told me that you did not know she was the person who moved the coffee machine to her desk?

And then I realize what my colleagues meaning.
