    I never knew how much I hated chewing noises,

    until I was stuck listening to the obnoxious sound of my hairdresser chewing gum for more than two hours. I didn't want to make things awkward by saying anything but its a very annoying sound.

    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

    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!!!

    Generally, people chewing around me do not

    affect me. The only time I felt enraged at somebody chewing was when a girl sitting close to me on the couch was eating cottage cheese with her mouth open. She had a cold, and I could hear her trying to breathe through her mouth and eat at the same time. The sound of the cottage...

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

    Noisy Lunch Breaks

    I can't relax at lunch time at all when at work. Everybody, but EVERYBODY eats a packet of crisps or similar noisy snacks for their lunch. If that's not enough, many bring apples too. This is all eaten with various degrees of noise, from loud to very loud. Some people eat them...

    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 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.

    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.

    I hate when people chew loud.

    It ****** me off. I get payback. When it's quiet & i know that person who was chewing loud is sitting in front of me, i usually start eating my Snacks (I always carry snacks) I chew as long as I can right next to that person. I do it when I know it's not time to eat.

    I Want To Lash Out At Them, Hard.

    I don't do movies at a theatre

    for this very reason. Well, this and the people that sit and text all the way through the movie. My wife knows, she doesn't ask me to go anymore. If there's a movie she feels she'd like to go to, she take my daughter. They eat popcorn too, I don't

    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?
