: : Got a dialog between two officers:
: : "A: Sobel's a genius. I had a headmaster just like him in prep school. I know the type.
: : B: Lewis, Michelangelo's a genius, Beethoven's a genius.
: : A: You know a man in this company who wouldn't double-time Currahee with a full pack just to piss in that guy's morning coffee?"
: : "to piss in that guy's morning coffee?" - is it some kind of idiom?
: To counter this practise Starbucks was born: now you have no idea whether anyone has pissed in your coffe or not, it just improves the flavor.
I don't know if that's an idiom. I've heard someone ask a grouchy person, "Who p**ed in your cornflakes?" Coffee would work too.
