What are your favorite coffee shop lines?

Many of us have a routine being constantly worked to engage the waitress and make her laugh. I find it makes for better service and more pleasant time. What are your favorites?

After the waitress has been by for the eleventy-seventh time to offer a coffee refill, I will stand to one side, place an arm around her shoulder and stand pondering. She will always view this procedure with a quizzical expression while I then sit down and say, "No thanks. No more coffee." .

She will always have to ask something like, "What's this about?". I explain that when I have had too much coffee it gives me an overwhelming desire to hug the waitress. :-) Not too often it happens that they subsequently offer me more coffee but if that happens, I will begin to stand and she will rush off, laughing. Never had this taken other than with laughter. I'm always greeted with smiles the next visit. I've watched a waitress hiding her smile on a subsequent visit when in another waitress area. Might help that none of them could possibly take an advance from me seriously. ;-)

Put down the coffee and step away from the keyboard.

The same thing happens to me with beer, but I don't recall ever saying "No thanks. No more beer."

In Ky, putting your arm around the waitress, will often cause bleeding

My usual coffee shop line is "I'd like two large coffees and a table thermos full of coffee, please. And, when you get a chance, could I get some more coffee?"

In CA, putting your arm around a waitress will often cause litigation.
