Today, I'm an intern working in a company's reception area, which happens to have a coffee dispenser. As I'm the new girl, every client getting coffee wants to buy me one. I'm too polite to say no. It's 10:26 AM, and I'm on cup #17. FML

Keep letting them buy you coffee. Once you have cup #100 you get superspeed and can save everyone in case there is a fire.

Or just be honest and say I've already had coffee but your offer is very kind thank you

I hope you started getting decaf after cup #5...

$300 worth of coffee that's alot

That happened in Futurama! Haha Awesome

"What was that orange blur?"

100 cups of coffee is actually the lethal dose of caffeine!

Then they can reward her with a nice cup of coffee

#143 That's correct. Fry's "superspeed" moment was really just the pleasant, delirious experience you get when your body has given up and is preparing you for death.

Okay, Philip J. Fry

You need 100 cups for that

FUTURAMA ❤️❤️❤️

Or let them keep buying it for you then give it to someone in the office that would appreciate it more than you.

Just take small sips until they leave and pour it out.

#3 ninja'd you by milliseconds. EDIT: Weird, it said I was replying to #4 before I posted.

I was thinking of drinking it slowly so when others ask to buy you another cup, you just say you're still drinking one.

Let them buy you coffee then discreetly don't drink it.

YDI. Learn to say no to others in a polite manner.

saying no thank you isn't impolite...

I didn't say that saying no was not polite

Or just be honest and say I've already had coffee but your offer is very kind thank you

At this point she is being wasteful and #17 cups of coffee cant be healthy for you. Its just as polite to decline as well as accept as they wouldn't be wasting their money when she has had an unhealthy level of coffee.

insert "17 cups of"

Either OP is extremely shy to say anything, or they get her a coffee before asking if she wants one.

No no no that's just way too logical

just common sense really

25 - To be fair, coffee in France is TINY. It's probably only a few large American coffees. Still obviously not great for you though, especially when OP has the rest of the day left.

Nice catch, #97! I was picturing OP drinking 17 full 12 ounce coffees. That would be pretty intense.

hopefully its good coffee

Why can't you just show them the mountain of coffee you already have? Even if you're too polite to say "No, thank you", I'm sure they'll get the idea if you showed them that. Of course, assuming that they can see the sheer amount of coffee you've been given.

Exactly, just leave all the empty cups out and point to them

It sounds like op has actually drank them all or else they would've seen the cups, or that she still was working on one.

Have you ever considered a job as a bartender?

At OP's rate, she'd be stone drunk before the end of her work shift.

I work at a bar and many people try to buy me drinks. I just keep shots of redbull on my tray so I don't get shnockered.

#38 I think that's the whole point #8 was trying to convey

not a bartender, but there are girls who work for clubs by just getting people to buy more drinks

Just don't drink it!

hey free coffee!

Youre gunna have a heart attack
