WIBU to throw something very heavy at the man loudly eating crisps for breakfast before 8am on the train? (In the quiet coach, as well! 😡) This is after having polished off a Maccy D's breakfast.

BTW for those of you who remember 'Leon chicken satay-gate', I ate my Starbucks porridge in Starbucks before I got on the train so as not to displease the MN population! 😂

Loudly eating anything is annoying. I like an occasional crisp breakfast though.

Maybe he's finished a night shift and it's actually dinner time for him. But loud eating is v v annoying!

Unless its a REALLY big packet of crisps, we are talking about 3 minutes of mild annoyance
However, if they are cheese and onion crisps YANBU
They smell like vomit

Beefy hula hoops 🤮

Can you eat crisps quietly? And does the quiet coach mean absolute silence including no eating? I think I'd rather be in a carriage with someone eating crisps for breakfast rather than something smelly but sensible like a boiled egg.

Cross Post. Yanbu. Beef hula hoops are vile and they stink!

meh.
I just had a pack of strong licorice. the pack probably rustled. so what.

I wouldn't even notice let alone start a thread about this. If I was on a train at this time and hadn't had time for breakfast I would probably be doing tne same esp if my kids where with me.

Like pp said he may well have worked a night shift and be eating crisps in the way home

Unless he's eating with his mouth open, it is hard to eat crisps quietly. Even more so in the quiet coach.

Started thread as I'm bored.....travelling South for work at ungodly hour. Thought it might provide some amusement.

I thought the quiet coach was principally in relation to mobile phone/gadget usage. I don't think it's the "monastic silence" coach 😀

The quiet coach - to be avoided at all costs. I once got bollocked by an old lady for slurping my thermonuclear grade train tea. "It's the quiet coach you know" "Well I do now".

I suspect that a man who eats crisps for breakfast is unlikely to care what you think tbh.

I'd love a 'monastic silence' coach!

I'm with you OP! When I eat crisps alone at home I put them in a bowl because I can't bear the packet-noise. People shouldn't be allowed to eat them in public.

chocolatesaltyballs22 Tue 28-Jan-20 08:19:29

Totally agree that should be a thing @Eckhart!
It's not the rustling that bothers me though, it's the chomp crunch chomp!

It’s only crisps ffs. Just don’t go out in public if you’re that sensitive to your surroundings

Wellhellooothere Tue 28-Jan-20 08:21:56

Hate smelly, noisy food on public transport! Was on a train the other day with a bloke having a stinky cornish pasty for brekkie. He had the nerve to give evils later to the woman opp him doing her make up...

dottiedodah Tue 28-Jan-20 08:22:42

Better than the poster a little while ago ,with the story of woman being told off for eating Hard boiled eggs ! Ugh !

Microwavedtea Tue 28-Jan-20 08:23:00

I get this is in jest but, still, YABU.

It’s a shame, while you have the entire world at your fingertips, that you’re bored.

May I suggest a book....

Or at least start an interesting thread!
‘Man eats crisps on train really isn’t ‘entertaining or amusing’

Hope your day gets more interesting.

He should pop them in his mouth and wait until they go soggy before chewing!!!

I now want a crisp butty for breakfast. Ho hum.

Cambionome Tue 28-Jan-20 08:27:59

I sat in front of someone on the train a little while ago who chomped and crunched her way through a packet of crisps with lots of slurpy finger licking and little moany noises... I almost fucking punched her.

Do NOT eat loudly in public and close your mouth when you are chewing - it is disgusting!!

Oh yes -bacon wheat crunchies to start
Followed by a small packet of smoky bacon and some onion rings on the side
And a packet of vege crisps to add some health

Not sure what your problem is!!
