I Don't Want To Hear You Eating!

I was going to start this off by saying I don't have many pet peeves or annoyances, but I don't think that's really accurate, so I'll just start by saying that this is one of my largest annoyances: People....chew your food with your mouth closed and eat with some class!

I'm sitting about 20 feet and one cubicle wall away from our admin, and I know that she's eating chips right now. She chomps them so loundly, and I can hear every.single.chew. just like she's sitting right next to me. It's annoying and gross and she needs to stop now before I go crazy.

But she won't stop. All I can hope for is that the chips are almost gone.

HUGE peeve of mine, too. It's not asking to much to eat like a human, not a cow chewing cud. Want some ear plugs?

OMG - I'm so with you on this! I literally have to get up and leave if someone is doing this. When I grace my coworkers with my presence at work during BOSS..not only chews with his mouth open ...the noise from his lips smaking together AND him talking with his mouth full of food (hmm yeah..spitting it everywhere) totally grosses me out! Guess thats one way to go on a diet, huh??

Try giving them the "look"...haha I sometimes..."GLARE" at ppl when they are doing this..I mean seriously..if we can hear them...don't they hear themselves?? Do you think they actually like that sound??? Sometimes I do it see if I get any reactions.....I know childish but sometimes I jsut can't help it!!

The worst is my husband, who likes to have a snack in bed before he goes to sleep. So, I am lying there trying to sleep and I keepg hearing him chew, chew, chew. Yuck!
