Trial by fire

Danielle Lettering parked her nice copper colored Kia and went into the office. She never thought about her car or her Stanley beverage cup she had left behind, until she had the yelling about a car on fire in the parking lot. Danielle went to look and realized it was her car. She was really, really, upset. Fortunately, the fire department got there pretty quickly and while they had to break the windows to get inside, they were able to put out the fire. This left Danielle with a melted front seat and a big car repair bill. Danielle videoed the entire disaster result and as she inspected the scorched ruin. She realized her Stanley cup was still in the console cup holder and had not been burned. When she reached in to retrieve it she realized the insulated cup rattled. That meant there was still ice inside the stainless steel cup even though her car was seriously and maybe totally burned out.

Danielle’s Stanley tumbler had survived a car fire. Danielle’s online video caption showcased her comedic relief about the situation: ‘Thirsty after you catch on fire? Stanley is like, “No problem, I gotchu,” she wrote while tagging the brand.  “Everybody is so concerned if the Stanley spills but what else? It was in a fire yesterday and it still has ice in it.” The woman’s video has since garnered more than 60 million views.

Stanley’s global president Terence Reilly responded to Danielle’s video on the brand’s TikTok account saying: “Well, we’re going to send you some Stanleys, but there’s one more thing and we’ve never done this before and we’ll probably never do it again, but we’d love to replace your vehicle. Yeah, all of us at Stanley … we’d really like to replace your vehicle. I couldn’t think of a better example of our product’s quality,” he added. The drinkware company’s motto says their products are “built for life,” and it looks like that just might be true!

Coffee cup quips

Someone stole my coffee cup.
Police report states: I was mugged.

A blonde goes into a coffee shop and notices there’s a “peel and win” sticker on her coffee cup.
So she peels it off and starts screaming, “I’ve won a motorhome! I’ve won a motorhome!”
The waitress says, “That’s impossible. The biggest prize is a free lunch.”
But the blonde keeps on screaming, “I’ve won a motorhome! I’ve won a motorhome!”
Finally, the manager comes over and says, “Ma’am, I’m sorry, but you’re mistaken. You couldn’t have possibly won a motorhome because we didn’t have that as a prize.”
The blonde says, “No, it’s not a mistake. I’ve won a motorhome!” And she hands the ticket to the manager and HE reads…”WINABAGEL”

I was on the phone with my wife and said, “I’m almost home honey, please put the coffee maker on.” After a twenty second pause, I asked, “You still there, sweetheart?” She replied, “Yeah…But I don’t think the coffee maker wants to talk right now!”

Instead of water, I put Red Bull into the back of my coffee maker this morning.
I was halfway to work before I realized I forgot my car.
