Handling hot coffee

I love drinking Starbucks Coffee at work. We’re quite fortunate that they serve Starbucks in the cafeteria.

There is an interesting personal behavior I’ve noticed. When I go get a fresh cup of Starbucks I have the option of snapping one of those plastic lids over the top. I always fill the cup almost right up to the brim. And I never put a lid on.

I’ve noticed that I never spill coffee if I walk carrying the cup without a lid. And here’s the interesting part. If there’s a lid on it, I spill.

Here is a picture of me carrying a cup. I drank some already so the level is a little lower.
