    You're assuming there's a simple option, like just moving your leg. Sometimes there is, and frankly I wish there was. Then again, sometimes a sacrifice has to be made to stop something even worse...

    In the UK, the mug doesn't actually come into contact with any dispensing equipment. The coffee gets poured into it from above. So, negligible chance of contamination. But if it was really awful,...
