Does anybody else go to the effort of making a cup of tea/coffee, then forgetting it?

    I like tea to much to do this.

    God, I love tea. In fact, I'm having a cup now. And then I'm going to have another after that. Heaven, for me, would be a big cup of tea, served to me by hot young lesbians. Hell would be a big bowl of coffee, served by Ken Livingstone in a dress.

    God, I love tea.

    Yes, when I do I just zap it in the microwave for a few seconds. Problem solved.

    Same, I'm a major caffeine addict so I am forever making cups of coffee, then I get distracted, leave and come back and it's stone cold/grown a skin. So I make another, and it might even happen again!

    You are totally not alone :five:

    Yeah, but it's when someone else has made it for me that I feel worst. It normally gets drunk by someone else before it gets cold though!

    Yeah, I have done it quite a few times, I have either go into doing work on computer so much that I forgot about it or playing games console, watching tv and forgetting, a couple of times I have drunk half of it meaning to drink the rest of it and forgetting then realising which by that time is too cold to drink, a couple of times also I think I have drunk it then realised I haven't.

    I really like tea too, I can have a lot of mugs of tea in a day but at moment maybe only having one or two a day which I would prefer much more

    Yes, my mum always does this. That's why I don't bother making her tea any more.

    I like cold coffee so doing this just results in a pleasant suprise for me later on when I find I've left myself a lovely treat

    Yes, I do. And I end up either drinking cold tea, or putting it in the microwave, because I don't want to throw it out!

    Yeah! Except once my nana made me a cup of coffee but I forgot about it but I
    drank it cold so it wasn't rude to leave with the cup still full...

    Yeah I've done it a few times and by the time I remember it's gone cold. Or other times I've boiled the kettle and I forget to actually make the tea .

    Nah, but sometimes I forget to actually put the kettle on and just pour cold water into my mug.
