This morning, as my Lyft ride from my alignment shop to my office pulled into the driveway at work, the shaking of the car caused me to spill a bunch of coffee all over my right thigh. Oh, and I’m wearing gray pants. Instead of yelling FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK in the Lyft car, I kept it together and sprung into action.

I collected my things, tipped the Lyft driver through the app, proceeded directly to the bathroom, used several wet paper towels to sop up the coffee/saturate that section of my pants with water, then walked to my office, using my bag to strategically hide the wet spot on my leg, and got to work while I waited for my pants to dry.

My pants are now dry, and 100% coffee stain free.

I do have a bit of a lingering coffee smell hanging on me, but I can live with that.
