I went to get a haircut today and there was almost a 2 hour wait so I came back home and will return a little later. While waiting I noticed a woman, maybe 5 years older than myself, chewing a wad of bubblegum. She was smacking and cracking and very loud. It was so annoying. I wasn't about to wait that long wait listening to her as she had her hair dyed, cut, etc. Does this type of gum chewing about drive you half batty?

That must have been very annoying. I know it would have annoyed me. I think a place like that where you are around a lot of people is just NO place to be chewing gum, any gum for that matter. People like that are so inconsiderate of others. Makes you wonder if they were raised to be that way. I'm surprised the beautician didn't ask her to throw it away.

Hello dear carol bee. I can understand how annoying you feel when one is chewing something so loud. I once had a similar experience, but it was someone who was eating opposite to me at the same table in a restaurant. I avoided hearing his annoying chewing noise polluting the ears by moving to another table though I could still hear it. So you are not alone there, dear friend.
