“I hate coffee—it keeps me awake at work”

"I hate coffee—it keeps me awake at work” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts, caps and mugs. The saying—a twist on “I hate coffee—it keeps me awake at night“—has been cited in print since at least 1999 and is of unknown authorship.

This funny mug says “I hate coffee, it keeps me awake at work”.

It is not recommended that you actually use this mug at work (assuming you want to keep your job).
