    And yes! Crying babies are one of the worst noises in the world. I surprise people when I say I dislike babies. Give them to me when they're 3-5 and I'm golden. I like being TOLD what the heck is wrong. Though, now that I think about it, I don't know if it's the noise that triggers me or my own incompetence over discerning their needs.
    I guess children in this area are just spoiled-stupid. My friends daughter, at 4 yrs old, just spat up food she didn't like without a word. When you asked " Do you not like it" she made a "Yucky face" and violently shook her head. Of course I get to hear how smart she is every day.

    The children who scream in public here are anywhere between 2-12. It's pretty pathetic.

    Hehe, at 4 that's pretty par for the course
    Of course, it shouldn't be encouraged though (which also means containing your own giggles or smiles, which make them think their behavior is okay).

    Screaming though? If they're outside playing, some of that is okay. As much as I hate the noise, they do need an outlet. But temper tantrums in restaurants or stores? Take their butts outside, please. DEFINITELY don't give in.

    One thing that get's on my last nerve, for parents, is when they rough house their kid (playing), but then get insulted, strict and punishing when the kids goes up and pops them. Little kids, especially, have a really hard time knowing when it's okay sometimes but not others.
    And parents who tease their kid and then punish them once they finally have a break down

    My ex used to manage to make it sound like he was chewing with his mouth open and swishing his food between his teeth while his mouth was really shut.

    He literally gave me misophonia like it was fucking herpes and I've never wanted to stab anyone more.

    If that's what this is, then I've experienced it a great deal. However I think I'm also guilty of making the same noises, so it's a strange hypocrisy.

    I've become more numb to it lately however, I have to be. Barking dogs and loud (Bengal) cats are extremely piercing to the ears. But to this day I still cannot sleep without earplugs; every little sound makes me shoot up in bed like I've hit a static shock.

    As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.

    I have a teenage neighbor that bounces a damn basketball all of the funking time in the parking lot right outside my bedroom window. I want to shove that funking basketball so far up his ass that they’ll be able to adjust the air pressure through his mouth.

    Does that qualify?

    I’m similar, @Cellmold. I pop my fingers more times a day than should be humanly possible... but also my instep, toes, elbows, back, sternum etc etc etc rofl. With Ehlers-Danlos I MUST pop them or I’m in extreme pain.
    Yet, the sounds of people popping their own knuckles drives me batty.
    I also can’t stand people fidgeting or bouncing their legs. I’m the worst leg bouncer I’ve ever known

    @Tater , why would you torture us like that?! (heheh, thankfully, it wouldn’t load for me so I missed out. The internet is lagging tonight because of the storm)

    Rofl, @Population: 1 yes, that counts. I would be just as grumbly too!

    Anything loud or sudden and I'm known to easily jump at things. Like I can feel it reverberate through my body. And it is most unpleasant.

    Some thought it was because I was easily scared. Lol. I rarely feel actual fear. My female friend hid behind me because of big dogs (like pitbulls) running towards us at night and I didn't care whatsoever. Been cornered by aggressive big dogs and didn't show nor feel any fear. Nearly got hit by cars. Didn't care. I think it's just that I am sensitive to what's unexpected. I prefer some level of predictability.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure I have this. Sniffing, coughing, excessive throat clearing, sneezing, chewing, slurping, snoring, anything like that drives me insane. The worst is the sniffing, it makes me want to throw a kleenex box at the people doing it. There are times where I’ve brought the offending person a box of Kleenex and they refused to use them. I don’t understand it and hate it.

    Church services are often the worst because there are a lot of old people that have the emphysema style cough and the rest are constantly throat clearing. Watching End Game a couple weeks ago was maddening because a sniffer was next to me in the theater for a 3 hour movie.
