I’ve been thinking about this more and more lately because on both TV and radio I have been hearing certain noises in commercials that I absolutely detest. What am I talking about? Its simple: sounds that drive you to anger, even rage, when you hear them. Sounds that are usually deep seated and personal.
For me its the sound of someone pouring a drink into a cup, someone chewing food and beatboxers. No joke. I absolutely HATE these things! >:(. We’re talking radio-punching hatred here.
How about y’all? I know its a silly question but I’m genuinely interested.
People chewing with mouths open. My brother in law is the worst; 50 year old guy who eats like a six-year-old. I hate it.
Crying babies. I know, common, but I’m almost fearful of the internal rage this sound inspires in me.
Clinking cutlery, especially when people tinkle their forks against a glass at a wedding reception (to cause the newlyweds to kiss, a tradition around here). It freaks me out.
Vomiting. One of the very worst sounds.
Good old fingernails on a blackboard. This sound destroys me; whether naturally or because it’s supposed to be horrid, I don’t know. However, interestingly, I don’t mind the squeaking of a balloon; it doesn’t bother me at all.
The sucking-chest-wound sound of an old, cheap coffee-maker splurping the last of the water from the reservoir into the grounds’ basket. Ugh!!
Chickens. Not the crow of a rooster, but the quieter, happy clucking of a contended hen. I have ZERO idea why this bugs me so much!! It drives me crazy, though. I can’t listen to it for long before I have to escape it… difficult, considering we are raising a hundred of the little bastards this year.
Dogs barking indoors, kids screaming, sirens, snoring, steam kettles, medal clanging, glass shattering, clapping, pen clicking, paper crinkling, sometimes the sound that muted TVs make annoy the hell out of me. Doors slamming, bass.
The sound everyone else can hear when you are pumping heavy bass at full volume though cheapo earphones.
the tinny esssss essss esssss essssss noise you are inflicting on everyone else on the bus has got to be the worst noise ever
