If Kubler-Ross had a Keurig and it stopped working.

Stage 1 Denial

The Keurig can't be broken.  There's no way I could have paid this much money for this thing and it be broken.  It just needs to be cleaned!  Surely that's it.  I'll dig out the instructions and clean it.

Stage 2 Anger

Stupid Keurig.  I hate Keurig.  Who wanted this coffee maker anyway???  De-scaling???  Who calls it that except for pretentious people.  It's removing water scum is what it is.  I hate Keurig.

Stage 3 Bargaining

COME ON KEURIG.  I have cleaned every conceivable part of you.  If you just start working for a week, I promise to de-scale you on a schedule for the love of God. 

Stage 4 Depression

What am I going to do???  I don't think I can live without a Keurig.  Who is going to care???  Hubby was right?!  Noooooooooooooo!

Stage 5 Acceptance

Hubby was right?!  Keurig is over rated.  WalMart coffee makers are okay.  I will drink coffee from a WalMart coffee maker and be happy.

i refuse to give in to my own husband's denial of the keurig as a moral imperative.

Dear friend, I know you've experienced the death of your coffee maker. I don't know what to say! I will avoid you and not look you in the eye and act like it never happened. But know I'm hurting for you!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm not a coffee drinker myself, but I would be heartbroken if my iced tea maker died. Is there a local support group you can attend?

I guess you could estimate the number of cups of coffee you have enjoyed and see if it was worth it ... but six months seems like a short lifespan for an appliance like this -- as long as you are checking the instructions, I'd check for a warranty -- one year would not seem to be unreasonable!

Should I send flowers or donate to a charity of your choice?

My condolences. I'm not a coffee drinker, but as a dedicated diet coke imbiber, I feel your pain.
