Our teachers at our school run on pure caffeine. We have a coffee machine in the staff room so that the staff don't have to go off campus to get their brews. Unfortunately, the coffee machine gets so much use that it can overheat or break down sometimes. It's no good for any of us when the coffee machine isn't working and we are all cranky and tired. I work in the office and I organise for the repair guy to come out and fix it when it stops working as well as some ongoing checks to keep it working, so I've gained experience in dealing with appliance repairs. This blog is dedicated to sharing my experience.
