Weird Behavior Evolution

In the morning, I get coffee in the coffee room, and put creamer and sugar in it unless I'm feeling extra-virtuous. This requires stirring. Now, I used to use one of the plastic spoons that we have a box of, and then wash it and put it in the dish drainer for next time (and so that there's a spoon available for anyone else who needs one). But the next morning, it would always be gone. I kind of assume that someone else uses it, and then their auto-pilot of "throw away disposable spoons" kicks in and they trash it.

So now I stir my coffee with a plastic fork, wash the fork, and put it in the dish drainer, and the next morning, the fork is still there.
