This thread reminds me of a Minister of Music we had in one of Dad's Churches. He was new to the South Louisiana area, fresh out of the seminary, and yes, we were his first church. 

Mother and Dad had asked him to dinner one evening.?Dad went out to the boats, just as they had pulled in. He picked up shrimp and oysters and hurried home. 

Imagine coming home to a dinner of fresh fried shrimp and oysters, with Hushpuppies, homemade cole slaw-The Works. Mother created something special.

The Young Man sat down at the table and looked at the plate that mother sat before him..."Can I have a cheeseburger, instead?" 

No, he was not allergic to seafood. Come to find out, if he didn't want what his Mother fixed, she would cook a second meal, just for him.

40 plus years later, Mother still gets a certain look in her eye when she talks about it....

Goodness, i think, "No, thank you" is perfectly polite! After all, they said the magic words, "Thank you". I'd rather they said no, than took some and wasted it by not eating it.?
And that sure beats the heck out of, "Yuck, that stuff's nasty", or wailing "I don't wanna!". If that's from a small child, it's not polite, but not unexpected. But from an adult, well, yeah, i might not feed them again.?
