Help! I 'm on a train and two people in close proximity are eating crisps.Its noisy crisp eating in stereo and even my headphones aren't cancelling it! Oh noooo now it's a Granny Smith Apple! Is anyone else as neurotic as I am?
No, but I have a big head! My school hat was 6 and 7/8. That could be the reason for the echoing! There is no pleasure in sucking crisps! Unfortunately, I think my toddler granddaughter takes after me. Pity my poor husband when he has to listen to a double act.
When everything my now ex DH did irritated me, the worst thing was the sound of him eating toast. He couldn't do anything right in those days! Living alone now means that I can be as noisy as I like, but I wouldn't inflict the sounds on others in a public place.
I can remember silently seething as my daughter sat munching away happily on toast. Then she would look up and say "What?!?!" as she sensed my eyes on her. She would be really indignant, because she was eating nicely, with her mouth closed. It was just that the sound came out of the top of her head!
Anyone eating anything within my hearing radar really cheeses me off. At home we have to have the tv on in the kitchen as soon as anyone eats and if someone sits at the table without putting it on they soon go "oops"!. There's a name for this "phobia" but I just don't like hearing people slurp, munch and chomp. I get hot and angry and have tunnel hearing about it. On a train I'd have to move away from them for sure!
I can't stand the sound of people crunching crisps either. My DH drives me mad with this. When he gets to the bottom of the bag, he tips the crumbs into his mouth from the bag. That drives me mad too and to hear him eating popadums in an Indian restaurant is embarrassing. He's lovely really though
Not eaten crisps for years but I do occasionally eat the ones that come in a tube. What puts me right off them though is seeing OH stuff whole ones in his mouth ?. I, on the other hand, nibble them daintily!
