It's farking annoying.

Put the spoon down and move away from the agitation.

No no no Maryz! If tea has to be slurped in order to be enjoyed at the correct boiling hot temperature, then so be it. Can't blame anyone for avoiding a lukewarm cup of tea half way down the mug.

Has anyone mentioned the "my tea is too hot to drink so I will slurp"-ers?

They are more offensive than the clinky stirrers.

Your accompanists? Do you really need a brass band to cheer you on stirring a cup of coffee? A full meal with you must be interesting...

NeverBeenToMe I remember that bloody song...

I don't thank you for reminding me!

I divorced on the grounds of the stir-stir-stir-chink-chink-chink on the side of the cup.

True story. almost

I like to blow (my drink that is). I have a limited time in the morning to knock back an espresso, eat a crumpet and sort out a packed lunch before leaving the house. Is it OK that I do some blowing so I can get my caffeine fix down me quickly?

<hands out spoons for stirring>

<and grips for getting>

You actually notice how much people stir their hot drinks?

Is it too late for you to retrain in forensics, or something?

dd likes to drink a cup of coffee with the spoon in the mug, which is just rude according to my upbringing. and dangerous, she might swallow the spoon, according to my dm

Lafaminute Tue 12-Feb-13 11:07:53

This drives my dh - normally the calmest and most tolerant of people - bananas!!! You are not alone op

LittleMissFantabulous Tue 12-Feb-13 11:06:51

Plastic spoon left over from weaning days. Can't hear the fucker in the cupgrin

Flobbadobs Tue 12-Feb-13 11:05:44

DH: milk in, stir vigorously. Slurp a mouthful. More milk, stir again. Dunk biscuit. Swear when biscuit breaks off in cup. Fish biscuit out of hot cup with fingers, swear again at burnt fingers...

You'd hate my df. He used to say 34 was the right number of times to stir. I think (now) he was joking, but we'd do it very carefully counting for him. grin

ScarletLady02 Tue 12-Feb-13 10:26:35

I don't have sugar in my tea so I don't stir AT ALL grin

Can I be your best friend OP???

SkeletonButterfly Tue 12-Feb-13 10:23:40

Is that you Chaos? grin

Are you ok?

<head tilt>

You'd LOVE my mum! She stirs a religious 10 times per cup, scraping it hard enough to leave silver swirls on the mug.

Who cares how many times people stir their drinks

Twattybollocks Tue 12-Feb-13 07:15:09

Yabu. I fecking hate it when someone makes me a cuppa, fails to stir adequately and I then have a drink which is not sweet enough at first and then is syrup for the bottom inch. Just stir the bastard drink properly!

aurynne Tue 12-Feb-13 07:11:43

I stir my drinks many times. I play with pens. And I crack my fingers. I always seem to be needing to do stuff with my hands, actually. You and I would be great friends, OP :P

A shorter clip

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Mon 11-Feb-13 23:38:35

have you tried this methodology?

TuftyFinch Mon 11-Feb-13 23:38:02

I dont stir at all. Ever.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Mon 11-Feb-13 23:34:02

DD is a hummer. I quite like it well some of the time. How would she get on chez Gip?

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Mon 11-Feb-13 23:32:36

I bet you're a slurper though OP.

Take a leaf out of Commander Bond's beverage manual and put drinky into shaker to avoid stirrage.
