After exhaustive research, experimentation, and countless case studies, I’ve concluded that longer delays rinsing your coffee mug – do not always result in increasing cleaning difficulties. There’s a point at which the graph plotting “wait time” and “cleaning effort expended” flattens out – a little something I like to call “The Procrastinator’s Payoff Effect.” This effect is punctuated by the “Oh F&%# It Point,” where the diminishing return on diligence is most pronounced. Studies show that the O.F.I. Point is typically reached anywhere between 18 and 24 hours (depending on atmospheric conditions), when the remaining coffee slurry is almost fully cured.
Once again my tireless efforts have proven the obvious, at almost no expense to you, the reader. No thanks are necessary.
