We do a fair amount of baking at our house, so we keep our sugar in a big tub with a yellow plastic sugar scoop in it.
I think the yellow plastic sugar scoop is supposed to measure out 1 cup, but the handle is broken so I never use it.
This morning I needed ¼ cup of sugar, so I opened the tub, took out the handle-less yellow plastic scoop, and dipped in a ¼ measuring cup for my sugar. I then replaced the handle-less yellow plastic scoop and put the tub away.
Every time I get sugar out of the tub, I take out the handle-less yellow plastic scoop and then put it back. I have never used it!
So why is it still in there?
In organizations, we have lots of handle-less yellow plastic scoops lying around. They are often in the way, so we move them. Maybe we do use them even though there is something better.
Or, maybe, somebody else relies on that handle-less yellow plastic scoop!
As weird as everything is right now, it might be a good time to find some of those handle-less yellow plastic scoops and learn why they are there. Maybe they need to stay, or get replaced, or thrown away.
