Absence from the Water Cooler

Eric hasn't quite figured out the way things work here at Language Log. He was wondering why he couldn't find any of the senior staff around the water cooler. The answer is, we only go there to gossip. Unlike the junior staff, who actually use it to get a drink, our spacious offices are equipped with bars. Who needs a water cooler when you've got spring water and single malt scotch?
