For eventually screeching For fucks sake, do you have to EAT like that ??! It's absolutely disgusting.

Which it is.

I cannot even describe the noise he's making right now along with lip smacking at the end, last heard when a pig had it's head in trough interspersed with the odd burp. 😠😠😠

I'm actually surprised by how enraged I feel about this.

I always drink the soupy bit at the end !
Plus I dip cheese and pickle sarnies into it , I am beyond help

It's unavoidable when I do it. Completely unreasonable when OTHER PEOPLE do it.

DP is not allowed to eat apples in the same room as me. I cannot deal with the crunching & slurping. It freaks me out.

It echoes. It fecking echoes 😠😠😠

He's doing it more now that he knows it winds you up. Ignore him.

I just had a mug noodle thing for lunch and misjudged the temperature. I now have a burnt lip ffs, and it hurts. I didn't slurp though.

Yanbu. I cannot bear any food-related slurping.

However you need a slap for the 'reader' nobbyness grin

I imagine I would also slurp while eating a pot noodle, however I would absolutely have to leave the room if someone was slurping one within earshot! I often turn the radio on a breakfast to drown out the sounds of noisy eaters!

I believe you OP flowers

There should be a support group for this sort of shit.

I absolutely cannot bear noisy eaters and drinkers. Crunching, slurping, chomping, chewing like a horse should all be hanging offences in my book. So no, you're not unreasonable at all OP. My DP has been known to eat like a pig at a trough and it makes me want to scream. So sometimes, I do!

Oh I fucking hate noisy eaters, my DH too. Makes me want to Bury a fork in his eyeball.

AddictedToCoYo Thu 02-Jun-16 13:07:50

I've had to leave my food untouched in restaurants before now because of this sort of behaviour. People who slurp and chew with their mouths open and make disgusting smacking sounds make me want to hurl.

Don't EVER go to China.

YANBU OP, i would look up Misophonia if i were you.

I despise hearing people eating unless i am eating too.
I'm ashamed to admit it that it includes my GF, If she eats something i have to leave the room.

Ezzie29 Thu 02-Jun-16 13:10:00

Sometimes you don't realise though! My sister will tell me off for eating noisily but I didn't realise I was! I'm a naturally heavy breather and I don't think that makes for polite eating...

Pinkheart5915 Thu 02-Jun-16 13:12:01

Do people still eat pot noodles? shock

Yanbu, noisy eaters are very annoying

AddictedToCoYo Thu 02-Jun-16 13:12:24

One of my DCs does this and I am seriously on the brink of disowning him for it. It's appalling, God knows how ever gets to keep any girlfriends once he's eaten in their presence. Also my mother (who was previously a perfectly nice polite eater) has started slurping in her old-ish age and if she doesn't stop I'm going to have to have her euthanised.

My Dh morphs into this slurping pig when eating a yoghurt. He has to scrape out the pot with the spoon for around half an hour afterwards. It's all I can do not to ram the whole thing down his throat.

LordoftheTits Thu 02-Jun-16 13:13:49

I have misophonia and DH is the noisest eater on the planet. Seriously, I can hear him eating a banana from two rooms away.

Usually a stern look is enough to make him pipe down a bit but he eats like a horse with an apple!

Believeitornot Thu 02-Jun-16 13:14:25


Make him eat in the shed

AddictedToCoYo Thu 02-Jun-16 13:14:44

I don't think I have Misophonia because I can cope perfectly well around most well mannered people who do not eat like slovenly pigs. It's not me who has the problem, it's the minority of people who can't be bothered keep their noisy gobs shut while chewing who have the problem.

This makes me horrendously and irrationally angry, and also makes me feel sick. I really really struggle around people eating, it's gotten worse since I've gotten pregnant too on the feeling sick front <<bleurgh>> I often have to leave the room partway through a meal with my mother as she's a noisy eater. She also talks through a mouthful of food angry

I was also going to suggest misophonia, I have realised that I have it in some degree, there are other sounds that really make me feel sick too, like growling, which is okay occasionally but I had a gent behind me at the doctors yesterday making a growling sound constantly and I had to leave the room as I started to feel really sick from it. Snoring sets it off for me too.

'if she doesn't stop I'm going to have to have her euthanised'

This is grin but actually, people don't realise how utterly murderous this kind of noise makes you feel when you have misophonia. Its irrational but its just not something you can dismiss as mildly annoying. I honestly wish I didn't care but I DO <loads shotgun>
