“It seems too many people have made love to the office water cooler,” says Lizzy in New York. And some of them, it seems, are getting a little sloppy.

Lizzy says the “Office of Water” thing refers to the fact that “Our office is full of water. Like, the fridge doesn’t have anything but bottled water and Coke,” but I’m not quite buying it. I’d like to think this came from the EPA’s official Office of Water (Benjamin H. Grumbles, assistant administrator).

TO: WATER USERS: Lipstick stains have been noticed the water spigot (the faucet). Please keep your water containers away from the spigot. Also if you notice any stains on the water spigot. PLEASE SANITIZE THE SPIGOT IF YOU PUT STAINS ON IT. THIS CAN BECOME A HEALTH ISSUE. WE ARE THE OFFICE OF WATER REMEMBER. YOURS TRUELY [sic]!!! Also if the water bottle is empty please UNPLUG the water cooler. Thanks

    I think the lipstick comes from filling water bottles at the spigot…if there is lipstick on the bottle being filled and it is pressed up to the spigot, the lipstick transfers. YUCK! It is gross and why I bring in my own water.

      Yes, I noticed that too. I think someone was just proud of learning a new word. The note-leaver clearly thinks no one else will know it, either, since he/she/it gives us a handy definition in brackets to help the poor souls reading it out a bit. Then, the repetition, which I guess is the writer’s attempt to commit this newfangled term to memory through continued use, but I think it has more of a “repeat-until-it-loses-all-meaning” kind of effect and now my brain has melted and I don’t know what I’m saying anymore spigot spigot spigot.

    If people are sucking on the spigot it is ALREADY a health issue. True, a mental health issue, but a health issue all the same.

    On a similar note, it seems that you need new staff anyway. They suck the water spigot, can only be issued CRAYONS to write with and their solution to an empty water bottle is to unplug the water cooler rather than put a fresh bottle on. Perhaps a bout of plague (passed around by all sucking the same bit of dirty metal) would be in your company’s best interests.

    She didn’t like the new water cooler at first. It was pretentious and cold standing there in the corner drawing attention to itself with the occasional glug. In fact, if Dana was being honest with herself, she actually hated the cooler. Perhaps it was because she had been so attached to the old one, an osmosis filtration unit that had so much personality. Over time Dana found herself drawn to the new cooler, it was attractive and the smooth sound of its compressor as it cooled the reservoir of water in its hull was soothing and reassuring. She didn’t want to like the new cooler and her sudden physical attraction made her hate the cooler even more.

    It happened late one Monday evening. Invoices from the weekend had been imported to a corrupted database and the entire financial sequence had to be restarted. Nobody else was in the office except for Dana and that shiny water cooler. Dana tried to resist going to the kitchen but thirst took its toll and she wandered into the kitchen. Dana headed straight for the sink intent on drawing plain tap water, just like she always did, to spite the new cooler but as she filled her Starbucks water bottle the new cooler’s compressor kicked in and her eyes were drawn to the calming whir of it’s electric motor.

    It was captivating. The blue jug was three quarters of the way full and the water danced behind the rigid, ribbed plastic. The narrow neck of the jug guided her eyes down to the console of the water cooler, shiny, white and clean. Dana had never been this close to the cooler before and she could feel heat of the compressor wash over her. The cooler’s hard white spigot jutted from its compact body. And that’s where her eyes settled. She stood there for a second imagining what it would be like to touch it. She closed her eyes and fantasized about what it would feel like to have that cooler’s contents deep inside her. Her thirst turned to hunger as she caressed the cooler’s big blue jug. It glugged and her hand moved down, slowly working toward the spigot. Her fingers caressed it, and she felt the cool moisture at the tip.

    Dana dropped to her knees and leaned toward the spigot, probing the little opening with her tongue. She felt the drop of hydration and tasted the sweet flavor of the fluid waiting for her. She wanted it. Dana wanted to be filled with every drop. She leaned closer and wrapped her lush red lips around the tip of the spigot. She sucked that bashful drop of water out of the shaft and took the spigot in deeper and deeper until here mouth was against the lever. Then she reached up and actuated it releasing a flood of sweet ecstasy. Dana moaned was the cooler glugged away, dumping an endless supply of fresh cool water into Dana’s mouth. She paused to take a breath, and went at it again. She kept working the spigot until the cool water was gone and the room temperature water flowed. The Cooler was spent, and Dana was satisfied. She’d never been so sated. She rested with her head on the cooler considering what she had done and how it would affect her job. Would she be able to maintain her icy distance from the cooler when others were present? She didn’t know. But as she looked down at the cooler’s spigot she was pleased to see that her bright red lipstick had marked her accomplishment. The cooler was impressive. It had filled many cups in its short tenure at the office but Dana had taken it to task. It was a worthy adversary but she was the one walking away victorious.

    She pulled herself up and staggered under the weight of her waterlogged belly. The cooler whirred endlessly trying to cool another reservoir of water but Dana knew it had done all it could tonight. She smiled as she left the break room, but never looked back leaving the cooler with the impression she was finished with it for good.

      Apparently you just outed someone who wished to remain anonymous, as that post is “no longer available”.

    Water bottle people grate on my nerves.
    You’re going to work, not on safari.
    While I’m at it, stop buying giant 4×4′s because the commercial showed the vehicle as a rugged all-terrain vehicle. You will never leave the pavement!

      Yeah, what CB said.

      I’m partial to my Cinderella coffee mug and my 95 Corolla with 105,000 miles.

      So there.

    Lipstick is just a symptom. Think of all the non-lipstick wearing women and men who could be making contact with the spigot without you knowing it! Germs…germs….germs!

    You only have to sanitize the spigot if you put stains on it. Clearly the problem is the lipstick, not the germs!

    Water, water, every where,
    And the office did stink;
    Water, water, every where,
    Nor any drop to drink.

    The lipstick on the spigot, Christ!
    That ever this should be!
    Yea, germy things did crawl the maw
    Where your cup should be.

    About, about, in reel and rout
    The lipstick danced at night;
    The water, like a witch’s oils,
    Burnt red, maroon, and white.

    And some in dreams all thirsty were
    Of the Spigot that plagued us so;
    Five gallons deep he had challenged us
    In the breakroom where it goes.

    And every tongue, through utter drought,
    Was withered at the root;
    We could not speak, no more than if
    We had been choked with soot.

    Oh! water jug what evil looks
    In the Office of Water Remember!
    My coworker put her mouth upon
    The water jug’s plastic member.”

      Man, I tried to get in to the glamorous life led by the brave men and women of the OW, but they gave me a really icy reception. I guess I just didn’t float their boat. They said my argument as to why I should be allowed to work with them didn’t hold water.

      Now that I know about their spigot (the faucet), though, I wash my hands of them. Never again will I attempt to sail life’s seas as a member of their crew. It’s all water under the bridge now. Or, I guess, water under the office.

    My ‘water container’ is commonly called ‘my mouth’. And I will suck water out of the friggin’ taps if I want to.

    I do wonder if it wasn’t lipstick at all, but crystal-light packets. when you dump them into the bottle the powder sticks to the inside of the bottle opening. Then when you put the spigot into the bottle, it transfers to the spigot. It happens all the time. Raspberry Ice is very red.

    You could just bring your own water to work, or get a filtered water bottle, like from New Wave Enviro. Then the water is filtered as you drink it and you can use tap water.

    I got one at
