Most Annoying Sounds

It's Monday Listicles time again! Stasha asked us to list the most annoying sounds which was an easy list since there are many that push me over the edge.




1. Fingernails or toenails being clipped. I seriously have to leave the room when this is going on.


2. Loud cell phone talkers in public.


3. Shrill beep of a smoke alarm with a low battery.


4. Children (all children not just mine!) tattling on each other.


5. People with a hacking smoker's cough who are trying to light up a cigarette


6. Teeth licking. Those people who constantly run their tongue across their top teeth deserve a special place in the fiery pits.


7.Tongue clacking-especially when the evil offender is within close range.


8. Loud eaters this includes slurping, smacking, gnawing, etc.


9. Water dripping-especially when I'm trying to sleep.


10. Any and all noises which prevent me from sleeping or which wake me up.

Good list. Water dripping is a good one!

Robbie K said...

Thanks.

Kathleen said...

I am so with you on No. 1. That sound really grosses me out, as does No. 8 -- especially when they are chewing with their mouths open. Ewwwww!!!!

AnnMarie said...

Pretty much agree with each one of these. #3 every single morning. Can't stand #2.

Sara S said...

Great list! Completely agree with ya on all of these!

Amanda said...

Yep, number 10 all the way. Now that I sleep with white noise (which is actually an air purifier, so it serves double duty), I sleep a LOT better. My ears just don't go to sleep very easily when the rest of me wants to!

Diane said...

Oh definitely the hacking cough while lighting up. My husband and I have this thing we always say when we see that or someone doing something else stupid while smoking (we hate smoking)...We say, "Well, at least he's smokin'!"

Stacie @ Snaps and Bits said...

Haha, 5 is a good one! I never would have thought of it though!

Delilah Love said...

Oh man, I might have to revise my list to include some of these. It would probably be easier to do a list of sounds that do not annoy me. Haha!

Kelly said...

Great list!

It seems a lot of people don't like nail clipping. That doesn't bother me at all.

Marie said...

Nail clipping and loud eating are frequent themes in these lists! :)

Robbie K said...

It is painful to listen to isn't it?

Robbie K said...

It is as if those loud cell phone talkers want strangers to hear every last details of their boring lives.

Robbie K said...

Thanks.

Robbie K said...

Maybe I need to get an air purifier? I already run the a/c and fan in my bedroom.

Robbie K said...

ha...that's funny.

Robbie K said...

Sadly I've worked with too many people like that.

Robbie K said...

haha! Maybe Stasha will have us make a list of sounds that don't annoy us?

Robbie K said...

Thank you.

Robbie K said...

I have a serious foot aversion and nail clipping is the icing on the cake.

Robbie K said...

Yes and I've seen Calliou on quite a few lists too!

ROBIN said...

love this.... I agree with each and every one of yours

Jill said...

#5! I want to say "Maybe a cigarette will cure your smoker's cough"! Great list :)

Ducky said...

Teeth licking....ahhhh! My ex husband's father would suck his teeth. That whole teeth licking thing finished off with a suck/slurp. Makes me gag just thinking about it!

@dkotucker said...

Haahaa...for some reason "teeth licking" struck me really funny! Ya know that's going to bother me now too. ;P

Bridget said...

Smoker's cough is the worst. Did I ever tell you about the guy with no arms who was coughing all over me at Olive Garden? I felt bad until I saw the pack of Marlboro's in his pocket. Ick.

Mamarazzi said...

i am not a fan of any noise that wakes me or prevents me from sleeping. i have a fan going for white noise just to block it all out!

Ado said...

Loud cell phone talkers - YES! Hate that! (-:

Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms said...

#5 is a good one. I mean bad one. Ellen

Robbie K said...

Thanks for reading and agreeing!

Robbie K said...

no kidding!

Robbie K said...

Ick i have goosebumps reading that description...get outta my head.

Robbie K said...

You will now notice teeth lickers everywhere.

Robbie K said...

oh geez...that is utterly repulsive.

Robbie K said...

I have a fan too but it just isn't loud enough. I need a sound proof bedroom.

Robbie K said...

Makes you want to grab their phone and throw it across the room.

Robbie K said...

Thanks. I mean no thanks. I don't know what I mean.

Stasha said...

Never realized one can make that many annoying noises with mouth ;) great list Robbie.
