I Blame the Lawyers

I gave blood today.  Mass General Hospital always gives out some swag or other when you open your veins to them.  This time it was a stainless steel travel mug.

(There are some things one should never buy:  baseball caps, totebags and travel mugs top the list, with ballpoint pens not far behind.  If you just show up at the right place at the right time, someone will give you a baseball cap, a totebag, or a travel mug, often with a ballpoint pen tucked inside.  Just once I wish I’d go to an event and have someone hand me something I never have enough of.  Like a pair of sturdy cotton socks.  Or a roll of quarters.)

Inside the travel mug was a slip of paper with a list entitled:

CONGRATULATIONS!  HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO ENHANCE YOUR ENJOYMENT OF YOUR NEW STAINLESS STEEL DRINKWARE.

(I will refrain from making fun of the person who made up the word drinkware when English already has a perfectly fine word cup.)

Number 3 on the list was:  Be careful when securing lid as liquid may escape via the drink hole.

Silly me.  I thought that was what the drink hole was for.
