The water dispensing machine in the new BBC offices is giving me no end of entertainment. My desk faces 'The Blue Oasis' which is basically a place where there are drinks and food machines and stuff.
For the water dispenser you press a button and a cup drops down into a holder, water (in a variety of flavours) is then squirted into the cup by the machine.
This whole process takes exactly 15 seconds, I know this because there is a digital display saying so!
Now the machine is mischievous and every now and again forgets to drop a cup down, instead just squirting water all over someone's feet. It provides me unconfined joy everytime it happens...
