I Hate Chewing Noises

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 16,524 People

    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!

    In all I hate bad manners

    and impoliteness...not only when talking but also when writing and sharing time with somebody. I also very much dislike the use of certain disgusting words when unnecessary...which is mostly the case. There are many ways of expressing something unpleasant than throwing the...

    This is an actual condition,

    it's called Misophonia. I'm pretty sure I suffer from it. I can't stand to hear people chewing their food or noises associated with eating or drinking. I become irritable and annoyed with the person..

    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!

    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.

    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!!!!

    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...

    When somebody is chewing out loud near me, I can't concentrate on anything unless on ways to end the noise, including violent scenes, such as hit them ahah

    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.
