    There are so many different sounds

    that fall into this category. I have my kids trained!!! No smacking, slurping, gulping, chewing, cracking, sliming, slewsing, burping, or talking with food in your mouths. The husband is the worst though!!!!

    So disgusting! It's a great way

    for me to instantly lose my lose my appetite. I'm also bothered by people who chew with their mouths open or talk with food in their mouths. Once your food is in your mouth, I don't need to see and I certainly don't need to hear you talk with food in your mouth.

    I don't know why, I just do.

    .. Especially when it's quiet, and all I can hear is the chewing! We all chew, but it just bugs me, when other people do it!

    I hardly ever go to the movies

    because hearing everyone around me eating popcorn, candy, crinkling bags and slurping sodas makes me insane. I just want to slap the stuff out of their hand. I never really would, but I want to!

    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.
