Bad coffee was just a euphemism:

"Don't serve your awful coffee with my steaks."

Serving coffee with steak is a faux pas in the first place. Why are you two even arguing about this?

Marital strife isn't the only thing bad coffee will cause...

How is this sexist? These hard-working men just wanted a decent cup of coffee. Why were these women so grossly negligent in their wifely duties?

Hey, coffee is serious business.

When I was married, we always had the reverse.. I could stand her coffee, but she couldn't stand mine, so she made the coffee. I also liked to experiment with darker and earthier roasts and she just wanted all medium roasted columbian all the time.. which I enjoy.. just like to mix things up sometimes. Gimme some HarHar, give me some kona or a kona-sumatran blend once in a while.

Coffee is still Serious Business.  NSFW, so I'll just do a link:

I love you, Canada.

This seemed strange to me as well. I mean, I'd try it if that's what we're doing, but it doesn't feel right.

This.

Then again, most of those dames were foxy enough that I could overlook the bad coffee.

Waffle House coffee was bad in the 1960's and it's still bad in 2020.  I'm okay with it.  At 3:00 am on a road trip you need to know what you'll get and how far the next rest stop is.  Some things don't change.

I'm not a coffee-drinker, but I once came very close to evicting a roommate on the spot when she yelled at me as I was brewing myself a cup of tea.

/only someone with undiagnosed mental illness would have the requisite poor judgement to come between me and my tea
//she got better

I always figured it was because she used the wrong flavoured jello in the hotdog salad.

Pretty much all coffee was bad in the 1960s, at least in the U.S.  It was cheap, low quality robusta sold in cans.  Look forward to that again in a couple of decades as climate change wipes out most arabica coffee growing.

Every time I see that I can't help but thing she is into it, from her expression. Might be more effective to threaten to not spank her.

Some robusta is excellent. This costs about $3 for 12oz. Very chocolatey with a great caffeine kick.
