There seems to be a lot of people here who can't stand even the smallest, almost unavoidable eating noises. I am not a noisy eater and chew with my mouth closed, however eating will always make some noise. Growing up, my brother decided to pick on me about making noise when I was eating. I was not making any excessive noise, chewing with my mouth closed ect. and it really felt like he had his dog ears on purposely listening for any noise so he could complain about it
. It really drove me up a wall to be criticized for something unavoidable.
Certain words or phrases drive me up a wall simply because I don't like them.
I'll also pod being talked to condescendingly. Most of the time for me it seems to happen by other females (prissy ones who think they are smarter than everyone else).
When somebody comes and interrupts a conversation I am having with another person, changes the subject and manages to exclude me from the new conversation.
Seeing lipstick marks on a glass will turn my stomach. Even if it is on a paper cup which is about to be thrown away, I find it very unpleasant to look at.
Really bad fashion, it makes me want to give the person a makeover.
The fact my work only orders work clothing for men (although women's sizes are available and half the people that work there are women). I hate that the shoulder seam in my shirt is almost to my elbow.
Trying to have a conversation with somebody who only gives one word answers.
When somebody gets *ahem DH* gets competitive or upset during what is supposed to be a casual friendly game amongst friends or family.
Hearing my own voice mail I leave on somebody else's machine. I am so critical of myself that I don't feel I come across natural at all if I know I'm being taperecorded or videotaped.
