Coffee is to coffee drinkers what petrol is to cars – they break down if they don't have enough.

3. A cup of coffee is in no way a legitimate breakfast.

Breakfast is supposed to be food, and there are so many incredible options it seems criminal to neglect it. Anyone who thinks coffee on its own is an acceptable breakfast needs to go and sit in a bin for a while and think about what they've done.

4. And people who drink it after dinner in the evening make even less sense.

Coffee is a drink that feeble people use to wake up in the morning. WHY WOULD YOU DRINK IT AT NIGHT TIME BEFORE YOU GO TO BED? WHAT IS ACTUALLY WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?

5. Coffee menus mean literally nothing to you.

7. Talking of Starbucks, to you it is just a pointless place for buying overpriced food.

8. And you definitely cannot understand the obsession with pumpkin spice lattes.

9. You don't see why people spend so much money on coffee when it could be spent on food instead.

10. Or on alcohol – because if you're paying that much money for a drink then it should 100% be getting you wasted.

You can buy a whole bottle of cheap wine for the same price as a Starbucks coffee. It'll be horrible, but it'll get you drunk.

11. You've experienced that awkward moment when someone suggests you go for coffee, and you have to explain that it's not your thing.

13. After the initial mind-blowing, they will then inevitably ask: "How do you even function?"

And you'll just kind of shrug and feel slightly smug.

14. "Coffee jitters" are something you will never have to experience.

Why would you drink something that makes you physically shake?

15. That smell that everyone loves, you probably just think is odd and stale.
