    What are your top-5 most annoying sounds?

    My pet peeves are:
    1. Talking with your mouth full
    2. Chewing with your mouth open
    3. Belching
    4. Scratching
    5. Teen Girl Babble wink

    Let's see...it may be hard to limit it to 5.

    1)  gum smacking, or chewing it with mouth open.
    2)  deep loud base on someone else's music.  You can't hear the music just the booming base and it really makes me anxious like my heart is pounding.
    3)  incessant dog barking
    4)  a dog licking its feet with their jowls smacking
    5)  any country music.  I used to love it but for some reason it seriously depresses me when I hear any of it.

    1. The train at 4:00 am. That's what happens when you are from the wrong side of the tracks.

    2. The siren from the volunteer fire department. They even sound it when they are out of alcohol.

    3. Joe Biden saying anything.

    4. Teen girl babble. Although I'm quite adept at ignoring it, especially when the teen girl is babbling that I really need to give her some money.

    5. The sound of my ex-wife's voice on the phone when she calls me. Like yesterday. Yeah, make that number one.

    1. Nails on a chalkboard!
    2. Bratty little girl's high pitch scream
    3. Talking with your mouth full
    4. Chewing with your mouth open also annoys the hell out of me too!
    5. Dog licking or cleaning themselves loudly

      I totally agree with the Bratty little girl's high pitched squealing.  Babies crying in a fit of rage and kids having a tantrum are the worst noise to me.  Keep them away from me!

    1) A sharp load squeak like machinery which needs oil.

    2) A cricket chirping nearby when I'm trying to sleep.

    3) A dripping spigot breaking a complete silence.

    4) A smoke detector going off because of burnt toast.

    5) An alarm clock's alarm ringing in the early morning.

    Sounds can have a tendency to drive us batty, can't they?   There are a few that annoy me....I'll list them beginning with the most annoying...........
    1.  Sirens....hate them.  They annoy me, frighten me and deafen me!
    2.  Hateful and insulting words being screamed by someone.
    3.  Babies crying when I'm not in a position to comfort them
    4.  Cars that need a new muffler
    5.  Background music of a Horror flick.

    1.) whining of any kind from any person; 2) nails on a chalk board; 3) Gum popping; 4) I guess I really only have 3.

    Currently, a bird who wakes  me up every morning before it gets light  which is around 4.45am ( on a positive, I have not needed an alarm clock for the last few weeks).

    People making a noise when they eat - drives me crazy.

    Burping / Belching

    Listening to heavy metal music

    Sandpaper on wood or any other surface

    The worst of the worst are babies crying when they are angry and just cry to be heard.

    Kids taking a fit.

    Smoker's cough

    Barking dogs

    Rap music
