    It makes my blood boil. I'm sitting here listening to my
    mum eat biscuits it's killing me. I had to leave the room, urgh.

    Does the sound annoy anyone else??? Agh!

    It bugs the crap out of me too. Especially people who chew gum with their mouth open...

    Chewing doesn't bother me but the sound of people swallowing makes me want to punch them in the face. It bothers me most when they do it needless loud or on the phone to me.

    My roommate has no concept of eating quietly. He smacks his lips and swallows so loudly I'm beginning to think it's on purpose.

    LOL that made me laugh. I don't know about chewing, it makes me also, want to punch people in the face. It's the worst when my mum chews coz she tries to be silent about it, but it's just annoying!!

    Wow. I don't think I ever even noticed the sound of someone chewing. Perhaps you should turn on some background music or something to cover up the sound.

    Agreed, but it's not nearly as bad as when someone's stuffing their face while using the letter "P" alot.

    My jaw pops every time I chew. It's nothing I can stop, so my girlfriend just has to put up with it (even though it drives her nuts).

    I have to turn up the TV or music to be able to eat in the same room with Chris because he swallows so loudly. I wonder if punching him would fix it? :eek:

    Yeah can be annoying if it's loud. What makes me angry is when people chew/drink while talking on the phone, the amplification of this noise on the phone means I tell them every time that maybe we should continue speaking when they are not eating/drinking.

    Having partial hearing lost is a blessing sometimes because I don't hear these sounds if I'm not paying attention. People say men have selective hearing, but mine really is selective. If I am not paying attention to whatever is making noise, I can't really hear it.

    mmm that bugs me SOOOOOOO much.

    the worst is slurping food.

    I hear SLURP, SLURRRRRRRRRP, GULP!

    The only sound that bugs me more is the sound of a vacuum cleaner.

    What's your number, I've got something I need you to listen to.:)

    The best way to get around the noises that bother you is to make as many noises possible that bother the others involved.;)

    I have a friend that chews loud and with her mouth open on purpose because she thinks it's considered "cool" to do that. She is sorely mistaken.

    Normal chewing doesn't really bother me, but the absolute worst is when someone is eating ice. My wife does this and it drives me nuts. It's like there's a microphone in her mouth it's so loud.

    For me it's not just the inability to shut one's mouth while eating, but people whose instruction in proper table manners was completely neglected. Case in point - a few weeks back I'm in an IHOP with some people I know, one of whom orders a steak. At some point during the meal, he abandoned his silverware, picked up the half eaten piece of meat and started gnawing on the bone. If you want to conduct yourself like an animal in your own home that's one thing, but in public and with others present you should show a minimum of respect for the people around you.

    I possess the gift (curse?) of exceptional hearing. Needless to say, I cannot stand the ungodly noises of chewing, crunching, swallowing, slurping, or whatever other unpleasant noises may result from eating or drinking, which are painfully noticeable in all but the loudest restaurants. :eek:

    UGH!! :mad:

    This is my WORST pet peeve! I pretty much have to isolate myself while eating with people who chew loudly. :eek:
