Suitable responses to tea ceremony or art student scams?

Posted by mandomikey May 30, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi all... in just under a week's time I'll be embarking on my long-awaited journey to China, and one question remains:   What would be an appropriate way (in Chinese) to respond to invitations from the infamous tea ceremony or art student scammers, while still maintaining some levity?   I'd like to engage these folks in conversation while letting them know I'm onto their plan.  The English responses that come to mind include:  "Do I look like a sucker?", "Puhhhhh-lease", or "I'm allergic to tea/art".  Many thanks!
