Get the Subtle mug.
When you hint at something and it’s easy to understand that you were hinting at it (or not if you’re smart and clever, but you really shouldn’t do that kind of thing because no ones smart anymore), but you technically didn’t say it
It can even be used with facial expressions as long as the person you’re being subtle to has at least 2 functioning brain cells and enough common sense to know not to drink something on a computer. If they don’t meet these qualifications, either their IQ is in the negatives or they’re an ignorant, obnoxious, stubborn asshole and the only person that can successfully talk to them is Trump. For example, if someone walks up to you and you make an annoyed face at them, they think you’re mad and walk away (unless it’s 1 of my friends. Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who understands the concept of “go away” and they’ll just pester me until I tell them), but you technically didn’t say, “I’m mad so go away”. Also a thing literally no little sibling ever has understood until about 18.
