We are now eight days into the 31 Day Blog Challenge! Today’s prompt is “Biggest Pet Peeve.”
Something that bothers me so bad is when people chew loudly. When someone is nosily grubbing down their food it makes my eardrums want to explode and causes this ugly skin crawling sensation! This is something that just gets to me so bad and I can’t help being so bothered. I know that there are “noisy” foods like chips, apples and carrots but there are ways to eat foods like this without making sounds reminiscent of pigs! My family used to own two black pot belly pigs so I can honestly make the comparison.
When pigs eat they chew with their mouths open and eat so quickly that they cough and choke and regurgitate their food. Then they gobble it back up and re-digest the slime. I’ve witnessed humans eating in a similar fashion. I’ve literally witnessed someone masticating chips and then they coughed because they greedily chomped away too quickly and then continued eating…It happened in a split second when I turned around…*shudders*
When you eat crunchy food around people (especially co-workers) you should take a bite and then CLOSE your mouth as you chew and enjoy that bite. Then repeat. Don’t chomp down loudly with your mouth open while quickly shoveling the next crunchy food morsel into your mouth. Slow down and enjoy your food in a nice, civilized human-like way.
Do you have any pet peeves?
