    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.

    I was eating with my family

    and my sister...makes the loudest chewing sounds...I said "You make the loudest chewing sounds ever." Then she said, "I can make them louder you wanna hear?" I just stood up fast in my chair and went to my room. I couldn't take it.

    My cousin does not know how to eat!

    !! I was hoping he would choke on his food stopping him from chewing like a pig. His lips are always perked out when he chews.

    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...

    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.

    My father chews like a monster.

    I have started to avoid eating with him a long time ago because I just can't handle it. It's so bad that sometimes I used to cry out of some kind of anger that the chewing noises brought up in my chest. And the worst part is that WE TOLD HIM that it's very disturbing and that...

    it's not that I just hate the chewing noises.

    I hate the act of chewing in general. I know it's bad but chewing makes me lose interest in the food all of a sudden I find the food in eating disgusting as soon as I start to chew. it's not that it makes it taste nasty, the food still tastes good. but its boring and it just...

    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...

    That's annoying enough, but when he sat next to me at the movies, he was chewing ice right in my ear.

    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

    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?

    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".

    Honestly, I really truly find it quite

    bothersome. Especially when I am eating at the the table with others I won't eat when I hear loud chewing noises. You can hear the food, mouth, saliva and teeth all at once. And it is not a small noise. There are some people who actually eat like that. You can see the food...

    I can't watch Simpsons,

    because of the gross noise Homer makes when he eats or drinks. My boyfriend has teased me about it a few times and turned up the volume when a scene like that comes on but after I once hit his head with a plate. He stopped lol

    I heard my dad chewing in the kitchen,

    from my basement room once XD funny thing is that we are both the exact opposite: he's loud, witty and boisterous, and I'm quite, deep and cunning. Lol.

    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.
