    Well.. I do it myself.. but I never noticed it or around my sister who also does it I just never heard it.. I want to stop cause her husband gets aggravated by it and my boyfriend does and it makes me feel bad and I'm trying :( it hurts my feelings the when they ask me to stop in a aggravating why are you doing it way, but it probably sounds aggravating idk. But when i heard my sister do it from him pointing it out it didnt bother me much.. But still im going to learn not to im embarrassed and want to be considerate. And Im 20 bout to turn 21.

    I've been accused of doing it by four people in my entire life, and two of them were recent girlfriends (in the last two years). They claim that it's really loud but I have never noticed it and can't see why anyone would make it an issue (some of this talk on here sounds real disturbing, like the people who complain have some psychological problem). Moreover, I have never in my life noticed anyone else doing it, ever (in my whole life - and I'm 50).

    I can't stand it!! It started with me and my grandma. We were sitting and watching t.v then she got noodles.. I was trying to fall asleep but she was smacking and slurping SO LOUD so I calmly asked her to stop then she said ok but bout 2 min later she started again and when I asked she said srry the noodles are too good so I just left. I was about 11 and now I can't stand the sound I have to listen to music when eating with anyone but then my mom tells me to stop and that it's rude to listen to music. I can't stand school because they allow gum so I sit with my elbow on desk to cover ears but now I got something that makes my hand numb from that but if I don't I might yell at random people..

    This is a perfect example - I think it's a psychological problem that lies with the people who complain about it. You people should talk to a therapist instead of trying to transfer your problem into someone else's fault (the blame game).

    Actually it could be hyperacusis or misophonia. Usually recommended to see an audiological physician or an ENT Surgeon. Therapist may not be able to help. Best not to be so quick to judge something that you know nothing about or have not experienced.

    I don't think it's a psychological problem. There is not purpose for smacking food. You should be able to eat the food with your mouth closed. Really not hard. If you can't hear yourself smacking, then that might be a psychological issue. It's an etiquette thing. I notice it in elderly people. Lazy eating habit. Guess parents should just try to teach their kids not to do it. For someone to say that they can't help it is like saying they have no control over their mind. We change our minds all the time, so that's no excuse. My dad does it too. He says that he can't help it; not too long after i brought it to his attention he limited it. I guess we know where the psychological part falls in place now. Lol Have a great week.

    It literally drives me insane. I usually just leave the room.

    My dad is the biggest smacker in the world--it could be gum, ice, a beverage even. He gets so pissed off when I politely ask him to stop and it even seems he tries to be louder, so I will be a little bit ruder, usually unintentionally, just because it bothers me so much. My mom even started to do it once I pointed out how much it bothers me. Now I notice it around strangers, cousins, and other relatives--I just don't want to seem rude by calling them out like that.

    This is my number one pet peeve. No one wants to look at that or hear that. The most annoying sound in the world..especially if accompanied by finger sucking and sucking of any kind (and chewing and licking and anything disgusting like that) lol..slightly neurotic I know.

    I HATE when people smack and eat with their mouth open. Usually these are the people that stick their tongues out of their mouth while chewing. It's distractive and repulsive. I broke up with boyfriends when they wouldn't change their table manners. Such a turn off!!
  • Charleyxtreme 2008/01/21 04:45:53

    That's so inconsiderate and disrespectful.............I'd love slap the livin' fuck out of you just for saying that.

    what??? Its a poll you don't have to go all cursing....everyone
    has their opinion on here but doing what you did that is wrong and
    disrespectful... how would you feel if someone came on a poll that you
    took the time to make and said what you just said???? you would feel
    bad wouldn't you???learn how to be respectful and use manners and then
    come back but until then stay away from all my polls.
  • Charley... ~TiFfNe... 2008/01/21 16:23:01
    My comment was directed at the guy who said, " No, I do it myself..." What I meant was I wanted to slap HIM for smacking. Sorry for the language, didn't mean to get all ballistic.

    ok then
  • Charley... ~TiFfNe... 2008/01/23 06:08:02
    Yeah, I initially went ballistic because I hate people smacking so much that it drives me to the point of cursing or doing other irrational things. My dad is the biggest, loudest smacker on the entire planet. I've been trying for over 20 years to get him to stop doing it. When I say something about it to him, he simply replies, "Well that's the way I eat" He says it in a tone of voice which leads people to believe that he's doing it on purpose. He also thinks it's funny which makes me go even more ballistic. One time I was eating dinner and he came into the kitchen to sit down and eat with me. Of course I got up and left but I didn't go to another part of the house. I took my plate outside and sat down in a porch swing that was 20 or 25 yards from the house itselt............. My dad was smacking so unbelievable loud that I could STILL HEAR HIM SMACKING !!!!! All the doors and windows in the house were closed too. I hate it so much that I've actually contemplated breaking his jaw so he can't do it anymore.

    that is an on going issue at our house. My 8 year old smacks all the time when he eats. his older brothers can't stand it and yell at him all the time. i tolerate it because it's not that bad. my husband is also a big smacker but he won't admit that he does it so i just stay silent on that one. how about slurping with they drink?
  • Joanne IrishMa... 2008/07/09 01:24:38
    I know, my husband is a big smacker and it drives me crazy. When he sits down to have breakfast (a huge bowl of cereal) i have to walk out, I can't stand it. I also have an 8 year old who smacks but i tell him to please eat quietly (I say it in a nice way, even though i fell like telling him "Shut the F UP")
  • Alex 2007/11/24 07:13:31
    It is annoying..but i cant complain cause i probably do it too!
  • Momz3 2007/11/23 17:12:26
    I never really notice it but it bothers my seven year old son A LOT . He complains about his sister doing it .

    I want to reach over and throttle them. I don't care who you are, chew with your frigging mouth closed.
