Lip smacking while eating and talking with mouth full. Oblivious to food/sauce around mouth.

I've noticed these eating habits at my school. In some cultures, smacking lips, slurping, talking with mouth full is a signal that the food is good, however it drives me nuts. Just the idea that they do it intentionally is bizarre.

The slurping is so exaggerated when eating noodle soup and drinking. The lip smacking can be so loud, it's like they are putting in an extra effort to let people know they are eating something.

That bugs me too lol

Also people using words like "irregardless" drives me nuts
People who say "good" when they should use "well" bother me
I also don't like when people fail to use possessives when speaking.

I simply can NOT stand hearing crunching. It sends me over the edge instantly. I carry headphones around wherever I go for exactly this reason. I also make sure that any commercial or ad like that, never gets a dime from me.

I'm sure others have similar problems. I met a bartender that has a similar issue, where his ears would bleed to sounds like this. Kind of crazy, but I can definitely relate.

So, what gets to you?
Ill add to your crunching sound you hate

I hate "bag noise" , when people are digging into their bag of chips when your trying to watch movie. Bags of popcorn.

I'm gonna go eat some chips out of a bowl to calm down !

Traffic and lines (I guess they are one in the same) are really the only things that make me want to rage.

Other than that I couldn't care less how many utensils you require to eat your meal or any kind of noises you might make while doing so. Hell if you want to eat it with your hands while squealing like a pig go right ahead, dinner and a show.

I HATE lines and traffic. More lines than traffic. In traffic I'm in my car so it makes me a bit happy

When people abbreviate things to sound cool. Like saying "cab sav" instead of Cabernet Sauvignon. Or "Brussels" as opposed to Brussel sprouts.

I was at CUT in Las Vegas recently. The robots who work there handed me an iPad instead of a menu. It riled me: am I at McDonalds at the drive-through??? I let them know I did not appreciate it.

Perhaps more annoying is that my name is Evan and about 50% of the time that I see someone write it down they write "even". You know what e-v-e-n spells and it isn't Evan. They don't even sound similar. It's four fucking letters and people just can't get it right. It's not like "Kerry" or "Christine" where there are like five different ways to spell it.
Along these lines, "could of, should of, would of." There is no such f**king usage as that!! It's could've, should've, would've or the complete could have, should have, would have.

It really burns me when I see some newspaper or magazine article that quotes someone saying "could've" and prints it "could of."

That 'proper' usage would date to around the time of your avatar pic

people without manners for the most part. maybe im a dying breed, but i was raised to say "please" and "thank you". also ask before taking things, nothing is entitled to anyone.

a few other things are assholes who leave junk and dont clean up after themselves, people who cant chew without letting the entire room know they are eating, airheads who dont pay attention because they too busy reading their twitter, facebook, instagram or whatever then almost walk into you and have no idea what they almost did and just keep on going.

I live an apartment complex and the walls are pretty thin here and I understand people live their lives but I dont know why people let their front doors slam when im trying to relax at night, that just goes right through me. Have some respect for other tennants you dipshits. parents that let their kids do whatever they want when they want.

I'll +2 on that!
I also am bothered by those who do not know when to use "less" and "fewer".
Others that get to me:
Further vs farther
Affect vs effect
People who misuse "irony"
And there are still those who do not understand "neither/nor" and "either/or"


A corporate phrase that I do not like but hear quite often is "to your point"

I always find it obnoxious when someone brings popcorn into a movie that pretty much requires complete silence. Think "paranormal activity." I had the first couple of movies in that series completely ruined because someone inevitably thinks it's OK to munch on crunchy popcorn throughout the movie.

The funny thing is these people are almost always aware that they're being rude and obnoxious. They'll try to show some sort of sensitivity to others around them. During regular dialogue you'll hear "*crunch* *crunch *crunch*"

Whenever the movie becomes quiet and it's clear that there's going to be a ghost appearance in the next 1 or 2 minutes, you'll hear "...*cr...u...nch*..........*crunch crunch* ................... *cr...........unch*"

as though crunching more quietly and between longer intervals does anything to appease other peoples' annoyance.

All the women who constantly flirt with me and can't take "no" for an answer. Seriously - I'm only one man, and there is only so much I can do!



Oh, and I hate VW and VW products. All of them. (Except Porsche)
I mean, extreme range hate.

Feet are disgusting enough as it is. I don't need or want to see them.

Not only is it disgusting, it's incredibly dangerous. Head on collision and you're dead or paralyzed for life. They should be handing out tickets for the person doing it and everyone in the car for letting it happen.
