"I Stopped Watching The Programme 'Cos He Was Eating Gum!"
May 8, 2011 7:51pm CST
This is what my Mum told me when I asked her about the Shadowlines (I think that's the name of it) drama on telly the other night. Mum was describing the opening scene that just so happened to have a copper in it chewing gum. I must say it was very difficult to hear what he was saying due to this gum-chewing but me and John persevered and ended up thoroughly enjoying the rest of the hour it was on..and we have another 6 episodes to go. As for Mum, she turned it over after 10 minutes so she won't be able to pick it up now. I just knew the gum-chewing would get on her nerves, I can read her like a book, even 100 miles away lol. On Tuesday night I had to explain away the last 5 minutes of a three-part drama to her because the Sky+ pause didn't work properly due to the memory being full. She thought it ended with this particular scene and said, "What a funny ending!" and I said, "Noooo, there was other stuff that happened after that!" and had to explain it all. By the way, can you understand anyone that chews gum in your face when they speak to you? Personally, I'd have to wear ear-m*ffs sat next to Alex Ferguson in the Man U dug-out. My God, he must keep Wrigleys going with all the gum he's consumed over the years!

Depends on how fast and loud they chew because sometimes people look like they want to chew their entire mouth with the gum on how fast they can chew. I am one who does not like to chew gum. There are some though that can actaully chew slowly and will stop a lot, in between their conversation. Those are the ones I can't understand why they chew gum just to save it in their mouth? lol
