So I finish my soda and I walk to the kitchen to toss the cup (we dump all the food and drink related garbage in the one can in the kitchen to keep any potential pest problem isolated).
On the way I noticed the wiring closet AC was off. The AC unit has a water collection bucket to collect all the condensation. When the bucket is full, the AC unit shuts off.
So I grab the bucket and continue to the kitchen, where I proceed to put the empty paper cup in the sink and dump the water in the garbage.
Only as I was putting the bucket back did I realize the cup goes in the garbage and the water going in the sink.
I need more caffeine.
