    Quiet Please!

    I don't hate all loud noises, just noises people make. Whistling, humming, singing (unless it's proffesional), talking, yelling, laughing... Loud or soft, I hate it!

    I'm very sensitive to loud noises.

    Like it doesn't hurt my ears but loud noises make me cringe, annoy me & make it hard for me to focus. I hate when people talk extremely loud. I understand if one has hearing problems but if you don't there's no need to yell when you talk. I also don't like it when I'm trying to...

    I had to deal with loud things all my life

    and I hate it. My town is full of loud trucks, loud music, and loud people. I have a hyper sensitivity to noise and my father would use it to hurt me. He'd stomp around, bang doors, run vehicles for hours... Something slamming a door actually really hurt me, feels like a kick to...

    call startle reflex from Cerebral Palsy. Sudden loud noises make me jump which it's embarrassing. Also, I hate the tv loud makes me anxious the same with loud environments.

    Its funny because in band,

    I am in percussion, which is drums, cymbals, and anything you hit with sticks. Being the loudest instruments in band, I feel like sometimes I need earplugs to block out all the sound.

    My Counter-Intuitive Pet Peeve

    I'm partially deaf in both ears; not legally deaf (though the condition is gradually worsening) but enough so that I often miss something completely if someone is near soft-spoken or there is a mild amount of interference-noise around. I have a highly exaggerated startle...

    I hate barking dogs. The sound of barking dogs

    grates my nerves worse than anything, wakes me up from my sleep. I wish I could live in a neighborhood that has an ordinance against dogs. Smelly, nasty, vile creatures they are.

    Dishes Together

    I'm sensitive to sudden loud high pitched noises. When my wife puts away the dishes, the dishes sometimes bang against each other. It really makes me cringe. My ears move like they want to close. I don't know why, it just is.
