I Need To Have A Drink Like Every One Else

emailThe day after my last university exam I started my first full time job. I was with this company from 1998 until the spring of 2000 and at some point during my tenure there the "My Cup" email was sent. We called it the "My Cup" email, because that was the subject line.

I won't reveal the sender's name, nor the company's name, but this email became an instant favourite between me and my friends. It was sent to the catchall distribution list that included everyone in the company, from the guys in the warehouse to the CEO. I've held on to this email for the past eight years, but today I'm sharing it for the first time. I've censored one identifying term, but the rest of this email is exactly how we received it.

who ever it may be you did not have a *** mug in the past and from any time this week you have one on you desk or hand right now which you know it don't belong to you or no one borrow it to you, kindly return it to it orignal owner thank you


I still love that email. It's too good to be true, actually. It's right up there with "All your base are belong to us". I NEED TO HAVE A DRINK LIKE EVERY ONE ELSE THANK YOU

My favourite part is:

which you know it don't belong to you and no one borrow it to you
