  • Anyone slurping drives me insane!! I can handle young children doing it more so than an older child who knows better. I still try to teach my children good table manners and it's worked so far! lol

  • I really do not like any eating noises made with the mouth open or when people eat with their mouth open. Slurping, smacking, crunching...get some manners! Kids, I just remind them once (please don't ____ when you eat) and the second time I get stern.

  • I don't like any one who does that! My biggest pet peeve is crunching I hate it and I know it is my OCD cause When I hear it I HAVE to dig in my ears to get the sound out.

  • not really - but i slurp and it makes my husband crazy - lol - it's only to let him know, while a group of people are all talking that i would like another drink, without interrupting the conversation!!

  • I'm the same way as agriffinmom. I cant handle ANY annoying sounds people make while eating. Slurping, smacking, moaning. I have to close my ears because i will go mad, lol.

  • Slurping drives me mad when it's someone who knows better, like my almost 6 yr old, but when it's my little girl whos almost 3 i just try to help her learn how not to slurp.

  • No, it doesn't drive me mad... actually I can't help but laugh when my kid does it!!!
