Pet Peeve?

Grrr.... I had Thanksgiving at my dads house. They are the most annoying eaters ever! I cannot eat around someone who chews with their mouth open and smacks their lips!!! It is just bad manners and gross.
It makes me sick.
Anyone else have this pet peeve? What is yours?

  • Yeah, my family is pretty much like that. I dunno how I grew up with good table manners, LOL! I don't chew with my mouth open or burp at the table like my family does.

  • I freak out about the "cow chewing" as I call it. My husband is really bad about it. I almost can't stand to eat with him anymore. He closes his mouth, but makes no attempt to chew quietly, so you can hear him chewing across the room.

  • Yes, I have several. But most of all, I am allergic to everything. What's really bad is when a co-worker comes back from smoking or when they have animal hair on them. I know it's not their fault and they are totally unaware that I am allergic. But it's so difficult for me.

  • You cannot imagine how happy I am to know I am not alone in this!!! Lol.
    My mom raised me with good table manners, but my dad eats like a nasty cow, and so does all of his family. And both my moms husbands after my dad eat the same way. So gross. I hate when either side of the family invite me over for dinner, lol.

  • My biggest peeve is when I get home from the grocery store and the bagger forgot to put something in my bag!!!!!! And it's always the main thing I need at that moment. It drives me absolutely bananas, I check everywhere in my kitchen and my car. I yell at my son who puts the groceries away, because I'm sure he must have put it somewhere. Then if I check my receipt and find that I paid for it, I am furious! And I have to go all the way back to the store to get it! Auugghh!!!!
