zeborah: Four zebras and their reflections in the water they're drinking from (reflective)
From: [personal profile] zeborah
I'd accept hot chocolate if I was offered it, but when the question is 'tea or coffee' it's not safe to presume on hot chocolate the way it is for water. And I'm not going to accept something I hate the taste of if I can help it because then I've either got to drink it (ugh) or leave a full mug behind when I leave (wasteful and exceptionally rude: I'd drink it rather than leave it, but I'd resent you for foisting it on me).

Surely people can't actually drink more of tea or coffee than they can of water. I suppose it's more obvious that you've finished your water because the glass is transparent. Or maybe tea/coffee drinkers naturally start off slower due to the heat of it. Still, I'd think the solution would be that, if the water-drinker has finished their drink and the conversation's flagging, that's your cue to say sincerely, "It's been so great to see you again," at which (with appropriate back-and-forth of course) they can flee in immense relief.
