Earlier today, I grabbed a mug from the dish drainer at work and was the next thing I knew, there was the sound of breaking ceramic and I was left holding nothing except the handle. The thing just separated at the places the handle was attached and crashed onto the tile floor in the back room.
I checked the rest of our mugs right away. It would be a very bad scene if that happened to someone holding a steaming hot cup of coffee. Coffee shop peeps, wherever you are, be sure to examine your coffee mugs regularly!
