I had a conversation with a woman at a training exercise who was adamant that it was right that we shouldn't have free tea and coffee; but as I get older I'm noticing more and more how every unnecessary complication in a workplace adds to your neural load. Having to figure out the coffee situation anew several times a day through a fog of social anxiety and vague resentment is a problem. Get a large enough workplace with enough weird complicated rules and I suspect you could spend your life just ironing out these little wrinkles and never get any work done at all. Maybe that was what she meant.
