Phil, Not exactly part of this topic, but..... I know what you mean... This winter season we installed a coffee/soup/hot choc. machine and had it vend at no charge so our workers could just get it free while they were here. It ended up being considerably cheaper than bringing it in for them in an effort to be nice. Now they come and go to get what they need. Even with them filling up the thermos with coffee (one cup at a time) it was cheaper for us. And, now some of them take soup instead. Come April 1st we'll change it over to 25 cents per cup (their suggestion). It'll still cost us, but the PR is great. And, 100% deductable.
