    Yes I'm known to scream this out randomly at those who come into my office chomping on gum or food and if you are on the phone please know that I'm going to call you out on it. Just poor manners and yuck! Don't speak with food in your mouth, as I do not want to wear it or see...

    It just annoys me so much,

    anything that sounds like jelly being mushed around forever kinda annoys me and when I can hear the food in their mouth like if they had mac and cheese I literally cringe and get so annoyed if I hear that

    At the Movies.

    Ever been to the movies and just focused on the ambient noise?  Next time you go, just listen to the masses "enjoying" their damn popcorn.  Oh my GOD! It is absolutely insane how loud people are eating popcorn.

    because they know it annoys me and makes me lose my appetite.

    It's just rude and gross. Dining with someone who does this is a nightmare. I'll immediately lose my appetite.

    I mean if you sit there and smack your lips and chew your food like a cow chewing it's cud, then I will just get up and go elsewhere. I won't sit and eat at the same table as someone who chews that way.

    Friday Dinner

    Is like a cacophony. There should be a conductor - "You - now with the chicken" "Louder on the water drinking" "Violins" and Voila. A bow to the guests, and on to chewing gum. Funny thing - It always comes from the most unexpected people - the classy girl, who washes her hands...

    It's A Cultural Thing

    I sometimes wonder if I've done our children a disservice by influencing them to consider loud chewing deplorable. Have we condemned them to a lifetime of cringing when they are confronted by noisy eaters? In my city, It's not uncommon to hear very loud eating on the train. It...

    Mouths Closed

    I absolutely hate when people chew with their mouth open and/or smack their lips while chewing. Please keep what you're eating and what it looks like to yourself. That is the most disgusting thing someone can do while eating except maybe to be sick.

    Loud And Open

    I hate it when they chew loud and with their open, that's the worse. Also when people are chewing gum too, they're loud and snappy with it and you can hear it all in their mouth. If you have some dental problem or something that prevents you from chewing slowly and with...

    When I was younger and played in little league, I can recall several of my so-called "friends" who sat near me in the dugout smacking their lips together as they stuffed more and more of that "Big League Chew" between their lips and into their mouths. For those of you who aren't...
