To want to scream every time my husband scrapes his fork against his teeth

Just that really, the noise of metal on teeth goes through me. I have asked him to stop doing it but he seems incapable of stopping.
And yes, I know there are more important things going on in the world but this is driving me mad!!!!!!!!!

Well, it might mean that deep down you have some other annoyance with him about something more serious and can't find a way to bring it up. Its manifesting itself in an irrational hatred of something silly. If you raise it with him in a jokey manner he's more likely to take you seriously - we blokes have an inbuilt ability to ignore anything which sounds like a serious nag!
And have a think why you're getting so wound up by such a little thing

Oh my god, just reading your thread title made me have that awful shivery tingly feeling down my back. My dm does this and it drives me crazy. Get one of those mini blackboards and scrape your nails down it every time he does it. Oddly, this doesn't bother me but metal on teeth, bloody hell

Even worse. My mum scrapes her fork against her dentures. It makes the most annoying plastic sort of sound and I want to tell her to open her bloody mouth.
My husband slurps his food too. I may well snap and murder him too. I've even spoken to him about it, and he keeps on eating like a pig.

It's amazing the little things that get on your norks but it doesn't necessary mean there's some hidden issue that needs to be dealt with. Some people are just hyper sensitive to shit like that.
My husband licks his knife when he eats.. it really really instantly gets my hackles up. The scraping of the knife on the plate releases an involuntary LAAAAAAALALALALLALALAAA from me to cover it up. Just can't help it. But I love the bones off him otherwise.
