Default i can't stand listening to people eat!!!

i absolutely hate the sound of chewing/biting/crunching. i have literally yelled at people about it. i get up and leave the dinner table when my parents talk with food in their mouths. i get so irrationally angry when i have to hear people eating, i think it's disgusting and irritating. is this related to some kind of disorder? can anyone relate to this?

For me it's somehow related to my OCD symptoms. They really spark up when I listen to people eat. My reaction is getting really angry, and then having to go wash my hands (typical OCD).

mmm mastication...

I refuse to eat food with anyone in a quiet room. I'll get up and turn the tv on, or radio, anything.

my dad is the noisiest eater ever. it's almost like he does it intentionally. and then the SMACKING sounds, ugh!

god, i'm glad i found these old earplugs.

yeah, it's weird to wear earplugs during dinner but damn it's better than going crazy.

Both of my bros smack their lips when they eat. It's reaaaaaaally grating.

Hmm, I never thought it was related to any sort of disorder.

I definitely feel your pain on this, loud chewing drives me bonkers. I have totally yelled at my mom because of it on many occasions. And she breathes so heavy when she eats and it's just urgh.

haha people are so gross when they eat. rules of food: close your mouth, don't talk, and don't make noise. not complicated.

Yeah I can't stand it either, it's fine if it's crunchy food like chips etc but that sloppy sound...........**** it drives me insane.

Also people chewing with their mouths open turns me right off.

If someone told me I was a loud eater, I'd try to eat even louder. But that's just me.

have you ever had any trauma to the ear (ex: ear infection)? that can make the ears more sensitive to sound.

with that being said, i can't stand hearing noisy eaters as well. i hate hearing people pop/crack their gum. it makes me sick. i left a store once because i couldn't take hearing some woman pop her gum down all the aisles. it was disgusting.

it's even worse when you are stuck in a room and you have to listen to noisy chewing, but can't escape. i've have had lectures that are 3 hours long and have had to sit through a bunch of people chewing gum AND eating. somebody ate a cheeseburger in class once. a cheeseburger???? i also can't stand the sound of people in class opening wrappers. i wish they would enforce the no eating/chewing gum in class rule. how are you supposed to learn with somebody smacking in your ear??? moving seats doesn't help because then i'm just stuck by another smacker.

the only thing that keeps me from yelling at these people is to glare at them. i'm afraid to say anything to them because i have to be around them for at least another year and a half.

why does it offend you so much to be told you're a loud eater that you'd purposely try to annoy someone even more?

It'd probably be because if I'm eating "loudly", that's just how I eat. I don't go out of my way to do it, and I'm probably not going to appreciate being told that.

Yes, I hate this! My mom chews kinda loud sometimes, and usually the TV will drown it out, but then she'll mute it and I feel like killing myself over the smacking. It makes me self-conscious about my own chewing, too.

are you ever bothered by things other people do? if so, do you ever let them know it bothers you?

Yeah I do occasionally get bothered, but no, I don't tell someone else how to act. If I got bothered by how someone ate, I would just leave the area they were eating in.

I am with you. I hate anyone else eating. I know I am not perfect and I make noise but I cant stand it. Well unless it is my so which never annoys me. Not that I have a SO right now.

I joined a fackbook(cringe I hate fb) group called 'if you chew any louder I am going to punch you in the face' That was too awesome to pass up.
