    I can't stand people

    who smack while eating and/or eating with their mouth open. It irritates me very easily. I just want to shove all that food down your throat so you would stop making those disgusting noises.

    Does it mean I'm too irritable

    that I hate loud sneezing, coughing and eating noises? What about the fact that my husband is sitting here on the couch flossing his teeth?

    For past few months we have regular lunches

    twice a week with my boyfriends parents. The way his father eats makes me sick. He chews with his mouth opened, always stuffs himself, so that sometimes some food falls out of his mouth and I always pray that we will not be having soup - he slurps like a pig. Mind you - he is a...

    Not only is the sound of chewing awful,

    but how about when they are chewing loud and breathing heavy all at the same time?! It takes all of my self control to not throw their food across the room

    Why? Why do they have to be

    so loud? How does no one else hear them or get bothered by them?

    Especially when people slurp their cereal.

    I heard that's a neurological issue so I guess I'm the crazy one for being annoyed by it.

    This started when I was about 12

    and I noticed my dad chewed so loudly and digustingly. I would feel enraged at him. This continued and got worse as I got older. It got so it was hard to eat in the same room as others if there was any cereal involved. I started turning the tv every time anyone was eating and...

    I like to get away from my desk at lunchtime,

    so I use our lunchroom. A coworker from the shop joins us, you not only hear him chew, but breath at the same time. It's an unappetizing combination. I call it "snarlfulling".

    I feel like I can physically hear every piece

    of the food that people chew and it's just nasty! I always wondered if people could hear themselves chewing and just ignored the sounds. Within the first couple of seconds hearing the chewing sounds, I start to lose my patience. Very hard to ignore.

    It irks me when people eat/chew with their

    mouth open and all you hear is the food slipping around inside someone's mouth while they're devouring the food. Have some common courtesy and manners. CHEW WITH YOUR MOUTH CLOSED!!!

    Yesterday on the subway station I saw a man

    eating a full package of oreos. He was curved and observant as a lonely squirrel in a canadian forrest. His eyes were bulging of pleasure. I am pretty sure he would just rip someone 's hand if a person dared to approach him. He was sweating due to the effort his jaws had been...

    I also don't like to watch some people eat.

    There are those that take too big of bites and stretch their mouths wide open to get it all in. Puh-lease! Take smaller bites.
