WE HOPE YOU’VE had a chance to catch up with some friends and family this bank holiday weekend. And if you did go visiting, we imagine you were offered the usual Irish conversation-opener of a cup of hot tea or coffee.

The thing is – and whisper this – we’re not always in the mood for a cup of tea/coffee.

Is it impolite to refuse a cuppa when offered?

Poll Results:

No, don't be ridiculous (10546)
Yes! Just take the cup! (3154)
Maybe on the first one (1386)
