thought of the day

Have you ever noticed how if you're eating with someone else while chatting away, that you rarely notice anything annoying? Have you ever noticed how if you are not eating, and someone else in the room is, that it is suddenly apparent to you that the way that they chew is gross, or that they feel the need to hit their teeth with their fork every single time they take a bite which ends up sounding like nails on a chalk board?

Just a thought...

i'm pretty sure you're only supposed to feel that way during puberty and that those emotions should be directed at your parents or sibling...

also: yikes!

Yah, it was the best one I could find online to illustrate the general feeling of nausea that I was experiencing. :)

Nooo... I started to experience this second hand food thing in NYC whilst riding the subways. I know you'll say that Mc Donalds smells gross, but generally if you enter one with the purpose of eating, the smell is fine... if you're on a subway and someone is chowing down on fries and a cheeseburger... the smell is horrendous.

But my first recollection of the gross sounds was when I shared a very small office with my manager, and he would eat at his desk while I was doing work at mine. with my back to him, all i could hear was his chomping and slobbering.. it was disgusting.

My new thing is teeth on forks and slurping soup... WTF. Basic utensil usage folks. It's not brain surgery.
