Mouth Noises

One of the most common pet peeves is mouth noises. Here you are having a nice lunch in a tranquil and serene atmosphere when you hear constant loud smacking and chewing. You look around and eye the person who is making the noise, but it is as if they are clueless about what is going on! Personally the noises drive me insane to the point when I sometimes have to remove myself from that situation and find another place to eat. Now I understand why my mother always tells me to eat with my mouth shut! Loud gum chewers and food smackers stop the noise!


The incessant clicking and popping of gum can be just as intrusive. It's as though these sounds reach out and poke at your concentration, making it nearly impossible to focus on anything else. Even the gentle slurping of soup or a beverage can become a cacophony in a quiet room. What's worse, these offenders often seem blissfully unaware, leaving you stewing in irritation or, worse, forced to speak up and be the 'bad guy' for calling attention to their mastication melody. Trust me, a little mindfulness with our mouths can go a long way in a harmonious dining experience.



I am all for communicating with confident and intelligent people, but when their confidence becomes too overbearing that is when I draw the line. There are some people in this world who have been blessed with a sharp mind that can absorb all of the information in the world. However it is up to those people to be humble about it or to be obnoxious. The people I am talking about choose to be obnoxious! They correct your every word and challenge your every position. It's enervating and oftentimes unnecessary!


Interacting with such individuals often feels like walking through a minefield of unsolicited advice and trivia. They've got an incessant need to showcase their intellect, making everyday conversations a battleground for superiority. Sure, they know a lot, but knowledge without tact is like a library without a librarian – overwhelmingly chaotic and hardly helpful. Even the simplest of chitchats can turn into a lecture, leaving you feeling more like a student than a friend. Let's remind ourselves that wisdom is not just about knowing stuff; it's also about knowing when to share and when to simply listen.


Movie Talkers

We go to movies to escape reality and enter a fictional world, but it is much harder to do that when people beside you constantly talk about nonsense while the movie is playing. You are trying to focus but they keep disturbing you! To add on to those types of people, there are also loud chip eaters and movie texters, who make your movie experience that much worse!


The incessant whispering or full-blown conversations during pivotal scenes can push any peace-seeking cinephile to their limits. To make matters even more frustrating, these chatty folks often provide running commentary or ask questions about plot points you're attempting to unfold yourself. And just when you think it’s over, there's inevitably that one person who feels the need to announce their predictions or spoil the ending, robbing everyone else of the film’s magic. It's enough to make you want to cozy up with a good old-fashioned DVD at home.


Rude Workers

There is nothing worse than being helped by a rude worker. It is as if you are forcing them to do something for you, when it is their job! They are supposed to offer their help and at least look like they are enjoying it. However some workers have no shame in showing how much they hate their job and how much they would rather be doing anything else than helping you!


Encountering a grouchy employee can instantly sour your day. You're there for a pleasant shopping experience, not to feel like a burden. A little bit of kindness goes a long way, and it's disheartening when the person supposed to assist you treats you with disdain. Surely, a smile or a genuine "How may I help you?" shouldn't be too much to ask for. Let's be real, nobody's expecting a red-carpet reception, but common courtesy? Absolutely! It makes you think twice about returning, no matter how much you love their products.


Overuse of Words

One of the things that bothers me most about people is their overuse of certain words such as like, literally,etc. They choose to insert the word 'like' between every word in their sentence! The english language has a myriad of words that can articulately express your feelings, so why resort to just one word 'like'?

Happiness depends upon ourselves.


Leg Shakers and Pen Smackers

Most of you who attend school might agree with me on the fact that there is nothing more annoying than people who shake their legs and smack the desk with their pencil while you are taking a test. You are trying to recollect the material you've studied the night before or calculate some numbers in your head, but it's impossible to do when there is a desk shaking or constant hitting noises!


This persistent distraction invades your concentration bubble, prompting sighs of frustration. Attempting to focus becomes a Herculean task as you grapple with punctuated rhythms of anxiety-inducing tics. It's like an involuntary symphony, where the main instruments are restless limbs and fidgety fingers, each beat further fracturing your train of thought. Whether it's borne out of habit, nervous energy, or sheer boredom, these auditory and tactile disruptions test the limits of our patience, especially during high-stakes moments where silence is as precious as the correct answers. Why must the quietest moments summon the noisiest habits?


Ad Pop-ups

Nowadays every link that you click brings up a pop-ad! Some of them you may notice right away and cancel them out but others you have to search for. There are even times when there are noises coming out of your speakers and you don't know where they are coming from, so you have to look through every tab to locate the source! After a while it becomes very annoying and aggravating!

#1 those people deserve to be CUT.

People who blow there noses at a table. GAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Mouth sounds! Oh god! I grew up in house where we had strict table manners, my husband.... Not so much and his lip smacking is awful! I hate to admit this but one night it was so bad and he had his headphones on at the computer that I sprayed him with the water bottle I use to spritz the cat!

So glad I\'m not the only one who hates mouth noises!!!

Leg shaking is actually a medical thing..

People who mix up Loose/Lose. It\'s so common.

There was this girl on the bus who would whisper along to all of the songs on the radio. It was very annoying. Also, I hate it when people use the word \"wood\" instead of \"would\" and they write something like \"I wood like to go to the grocery store\". Oh God.

@Natalie lol....so true, I can\'t ever understand how people get that wrong. Hearing people chew or crunch on food next to me annoys me. I know sometimes it is unavoidable. However, I\'m super annoyed by it!

Guilty for using the word \"like\" more than I should/want to,and for sometimes shaking my leg.
