It's farking annoying.

Put the spoon down and move away from the agitation.

Errm, YABU but I'm nervous about saying so. You're a bit scary.

Yabu, if you only stir it twice the sugar won't melt properly.

Do you really find it annoying? I can't say I ever notice.

No whats fucking annoying is finding that you're drink doesn't taste right because you haven't been able to stir it adequately for fear of upsetting some unreasonable knobhead drinks nazi.

YABU, I'd probably even start over dunking biscuits and then having to fish them out in the hope it would piss you off.

You're allowed three stirs and spoon's out.

I stir my drink a lot and I spoon out the froth. And I play the spoons.

Unless it's hot chocolate, which always needs stirring.

Sugar in Tea and coffee is simply wrong, anyway.

Beverages need different amounts of stirring depending on what is in them.

Inadequate stirring is bad thing. "2 times" may be insufficient.

But as you lift it up and down, that action blends it in as well.

So you can do a bit of stirring and then let science do its bit. Qui. Et. Ly.

My Dad has always done this to excess and it has annoyed me, - I agree that two or three revolutions is sufficient.

GretaGip Mon 11-Feb-13 14:05:24

I am not BU.

I am the saviour of eardrums.


GretaGip Mon 11-Feb-13 14:06:03

Also why on earth do these stirrers feel the need to tap the spoon on the side of the cup.Just stop it please.

FancyPuffin Mon 11-Feb-13 14:06:22

Not only do I super stir the fucker (drink)

I tap the teaspoon on edge of the cup when finished in the style of a pleasing tune.



BreconBeBuggered Mon 11-Feb-13 14:06:37

Dear me.
I hardly ever drink tea/coffee, but when I do, purely to be sociable, somebody is bound to chirrup that I'm stirring it in the wrong direction. I didn't realise there was a limit to permitted revolutions as well. <huffy>

I stir my drink a lot and I spoon out the froth. And I play the spoons.

Here you go: brew


<stirs some more>

It doesn't matter how many times you stir, the important thing is to do it SILENTLY! Other people in the room shouldn't be able to hear it to count.

GretaGip Mon 11-Feb-13 14:09:34

Ooh, I hadn't thought about direction. Think I may be flexible and magnanimousus on that point.

SUPERSTIRRERS - that's what you ritten bea
sts are called. Ugh.

GretaGip Mon 11-Feb-13 14:10:30

Oi, kniddy, that's unknid.

LadyClariceCannockMonty Mon 11-Feb-13 14:10:54

Do you mean your accompanists in the musical sense? Are you a musician, OP, and your bass-player/violinist/trumpeter is a stirring obsessive?

<<stirs up trouble>>

<<sorry about pun>>

TheVermiciousKnid Mon 11-Feb-13 14:11:36

What? What have I done?

Ah, here is your cuppa. brew



I think I must stir mine about 20 times, and I'm a tapper and I slurp the first couple of mouthfuls really loudly because its too hot fancy popping over for a cuppa op grin
