Here's a fork in the road: You've accidentally bought whole bean coffee instead of ground coffee. You do not have a grinder, and you're moving soon so it doesn't make sense to get one now. What do you do?
Some may buy the grinder anyway. Or return the coffee. Others, however, don't see their kitchen as empty of grinders, but full of possibilities. They open the bag, grab a cloth, and go to town with an ice cream scoop.
This kind of resourcefulness doesn't come around often. Personally, I haven't seen it since the late 90's, when I witnessed carpet being trimmed with a steak knife.
As for the ice-cream-scoop-ground coffee, well, it was a little weak.
