There are 100 million daily coffee drinkers in the US alone. Considering that hefty number, it's no surprise that we as a nation don't function that well first thing in the morning. But no matter how rough mornings are for you, no matter how many cups of coffee you require to really get your brain back up and running, it helps no one to share that sentiment on your coffee mug. Because, we know. We're there too. So just please shut up and quietly nurse your coffee like the rest of us so kindly do.
Some of these mugs you coffee drinkers own are making mornings harder for everyone else. Do the world a favor, and stick with a mug that's absent of words -- and images too, just to be safe. (Unless of course Lionel Richie is on your mug, in that case please carry on.) Your friends, family and (especially) co-workers will be forever grateful.
Here are the 10 mugs making mornings even more unbearable for the rest of the world. If you own one that's on this list, keep it out of the public eye. If you know of another offending coffee mug, share with us in the comments below. Let's all work together on this and put an end to obnoxious coffee mugs that make us want to go off the grid entirely.
