I don't know about you, but personally, I'm not the easiest person to be around before I've had my morning cup of joe. In fact, the longer I go without coffee in the morning, the scarier I become. (Seriously, I don't even like being around me before coffee.) I've been this way since I started drinking coffee daily as a college freshman, (18 credit semesters + two jobs = all the coffee) and I don't think I'll be giving up my morning coffee habit anytime soon. If you can relate, then you'll probably be thrilled that I've compiled a bunch of gifs that will make you say, "me before coffee." (I have the coolest job in the world — #blessed, am I right?)
If you're not a coffee-drinker, then you may not totally understand the sweet, sweet relief that first cup of morning coffee brings all of us addicts, but you should still scroll on. Chances are, you've been around a coffee addict before they've had they're morning fix — and I'm guessing it wasn't pretty. If you've miraculously been spared from the infamous pre-coffee wrath that most of us coffee-lovers are famous for, then just think of the following gifs as a PSA of sorts. If, however, you (like me) drink coffee like a Gilmore girl, then the following gifs will be all too relatable.
Here are 18 gifs that will make you say, "me before coffee."
