To ask him to stop biting his fork

DH has a habit of biting his fork when eating. Usually at the start of a meal when the food is hot. Spag bol today and he bit his fork mostly through the meal.
I've asked him before not to do this and things were ok for a while but notice that it's really bad again.
Not sure if everyone does this - can't say that I've never done it. I think that I probably have a touch of misophonia anyway.
I can ask him again but feel like a nag. Don't understand why you would eat like this. Does everyone do this?

It makes me feel sick just thinking about it. I'd have to say something.

I would kill him.

That's making my back go all cringey

Euww....I'd impale him on it.

No, not everyone eats like that. I'd have said something. Eww teeth clanging on a fork angry there's no need. If his food is too hot then he should leave it to cool.

Christ on a bike, just reading that makes me shudder.

My DH does this also but with spoons! It drives me fucking spare it is horrible when he eats cereal or soup. Spoon hits his teeth on the way in then he grabs it with his teeth with makes a clunk noise.
Sorry OP I do have sympathy but am also glad it's not just my DH!

Plastic. Give him plastic cutlery then he can cut his tongue when he bites down.

He doesn't actually do it with spoons.
I used to work with someone and when he had cereal at his desk, beside me, I'd leave the room. Lots of spoon biting and diving at the food.
That's why I thought that it was me being picky, rather than DH being annoying.

Oh my god this drives me crazy! Shout 'FORK TEETH!!!!' Every time he does it and he'll stop sharpish. Worked a treat for me.

It's awful I have tried the 'just imagine what you are doing to your tooth enamel' moan which works for a bit then back to old habits! I am watching your thread with interest for any tips!! (Or how to hide the body)

If he's done this at the beginning he'd be ex and not DH in my world. No no no.

bumbleymummy Sun 04-Sep-16 20:49:34

Yanbu! I work with a guy that does this. angry

Cutlery and teeth just makes me shiver. I'm covered in goosebumps just reading this. Teeth and cutlery should never meet. Nor should cutlery touch cutlery too much!

Give him plastic cutlery. Or give him only food he can eat with his fingers. If he doesn't do it with a spoon would he do it with a spork?! grin

DH does this with spoons - a la Gregg Wallace. After a couple of mouthfuls I usually end up shouting 'STOP CLACKING YOUR FUCKING SPOON' (without expletive if DS is around).

clearingaspaceforthecat Sun 04-Sep-16 21:01:27

I went all shivery just reading the title of your post!
He needs to stop doing it!

Good point - we're now exclusively plastic or wooden chez peppatax
