The Costa Crisis

As Reported by some news agency some where:

Today there was a crisis at Costa Coffee on the 2nd floor of Emirates HQ, when at 9 am local time, the coffee machine ruptured a line and failed, immediately shutting down operations and plunging Emirates management in to productivity. The scene was so dire that people were seen wandering the halls endlessly trying to figure out where their desk they knew they had but had never seen was actually located. One witness who wished to remain anonymous but was verified to work at Emirates on the 3rd floor was quoted as saying:

"I have never seen anything like this in my entire career as an airline manager in the Middle East. For over an hour I witnessed my colleagues struggling to find something other than work to do. It got so bad, one of them even was heard saying "now I know how our pilots feel" Thankfully be was taken out back and beaten till he came to his senses. I really hope this crisis ends soon and Costa is held responsible for this atrocity"

As of the last report, Costa expects to replace the broken machine within the next several hours, but said it could take days to recover the operation due as its patrons struggle to come to senses of what it feels like to actually work, and line up in droves to resume their normal daily pattern.
