You know you are an idiot when you put the cold water in the coffee maker, put the filter in the basket, put the coffee in the basket, turn the coffee pot on perk and fail to put the glass coffee pitcher in place to catch the fresh brewed coffee. Therefore, when you return to the kitchen, the coffee is all over the counter.
My coffee pot has a no leak devise when you remove the pitcher to pore a cup of coffee, but it will not hold if the entire pot of coffee is in the basket. The basket just simply over flowed sending coffee and coffee grounds all over.
I would not recommend this as a way to start your day.
