50 Shades of SysAdmin

Being a sysadmin it's a matter of attitude and shades... for example, let's suppose that the SysAdmin and another guy (any other "professional" in the office basically), walks to the kitchen to get a coffee and discover that both coffee machines are dangerously low in water. Not enough to stop working, but still very low.

$AnyOtherGuy: thinks a bit if the machine could manage to pour out another last coffee before death and then decide for a cup of tea.

SysAdmin: empty, clean and refill both tanks, clean up the waste container, empty and clean the used water container, clean up both machines inside and out, update the firmware and install 8 security patches. Then he get a well-deserved coffee.

...as I said, it's a matter of shades...
