Is it just me or are people who cram massive bites of food in their mouth and chew with their mouth open really annoying? Especially when they don’t put their fork or spoon down while chewing. Then they stuff chewed up food in their cheeks and start talking like the meatball from Aqua Teen Hunger Force?

My dad doesn’t close his mouth all the way when eating, and also smacks his lips. It’s both gross and obnoxious to me, I had to leave the room when he was having a bowl of cereal this morning because I just couldn’t take it at the time.

I get easily annoyed by a lot of sounds but this is something that doesn't annoy me for some reason.

My ex made snorting sounds like a pig when he ate with his mouth open.

Oh and his jaw clicked too.

Shivers.

I used to do that as a kid, but after getting scolded and told enough times how it's bad manners, I stopped. Now I find it gross when others do it.

It doesn't annoy me watching the way someone eats.

When they litter, it annoys me

Plenty of times, someone felt entitled to comment on the way I ate.

For example:

They acted like I was a football game and they were a sports announcer

They found it annoying when I ate the way they didn't like. Some precious lil "people" also found it annoying when I continued living

I found it annoying when they loudly judged every slightest movement I made. I also found it annoying when they talk too much. (Paucity of content)

You can't measure annoyance


Anyone could correctly find anything annoying

However just because someone is not happy, doesn't mean someone violated their "rights"

I never had a problem with others doing that & I almost never even notice others doing it. I'm too busy eating my own food or daydreaming to notice. Plus I tend to do that sometimes & I am usually not even aware that I am doing it. I have bad sinus problems & it tends to be difficult for me to breath through my nose which means that I have to breath through my mouth while I am eating.

I do entirely blame myself for being irritated by it and feel like it would be rude to say anything about it (perhaps in large part because I’m extremely self-conscious about eating, I hate to eat at all around anyone other than immediate family). I did not tell my dad why I went upstairs to my bedroom, nor have I ever said a word to him about it.

It's obviously gross IMO.

I recall one incident where one of my bigoted uncles visited & he ate with his mouth open.

He also made grunting sounds.

I just wanted to get out of the house, but my mom wouldn't let me.
