Grown adult men who ALWAYS need and use a straw. It's a cup, pick it up and drink it. You aren't two anymore grandpa.

Loud chompers that chew so hard it sounds like they are breaking their teeth.

People who scratch on the plate with forks and knives....sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard and sends shivers down your spine.

Poor people who eat mac & cheese, PBJ sammies and soup etc...at home.....then complain about their HIGH END meal in a restaurant. Oh, you are a fine consumer of fine dining now. Sheesh, it's most likely the best you had in months. No you aren't getting it free, shut up and eat it!

I have a few more, but I can't recall them right now.

Same with hourly blue collar employees who get 30 minutes lunch including travel time both ways. You learn to get it down, and get it down fast.

I'm not amused to be finished for 20 minutes and ate three times as much while still waiting while they piddle with their (small portion) food. Some people will make you even wait up to 45 minutes on them.

Come on, I want to get out of here before the week is over...I'm in a hurry!

I'm not quite sure why any of the people here would ever want to go out to dinner with another person. I have a couple of quirks that bug me too, but wow! I can hardly believe it bothers someone enough to write it here whether or not grown man drinks something through a straw. My dentist actually encourages that so that sweetened drinks don't wash over the teeth like they would if you drank straight from a glass.

Some people have far too little of a life that such unimportant things bother them that much.

I mean there's rudeness at the table and that's one thing, but most of these things people object to are all unimportant benign behaviours that any normal person would not be bothered about in the slightest.

"Open" glass (not McDs or others with a lid from the drive thru) sitting on the table. No hands (hand on thighs or under the table) as he leans forward to hit that straw like a crack pipe. He even sticks out his tongue as he "swallers" it down. Looking around with big eyes and proud of what he has just done.

He looks like a fruitcake to me.......

Men pick that sucker up and take a pull!!

I love using straws. It reminds me of another of my favorite activities.

this should be true,,,,and may be if witnessed once,,
but

I go to many business lunches

ive noticed,,, and its actually quite comical, a young business exec, we will go out to lunch, she is all professional,, and easy on the eyes,, hair done well, great teeth, make up, clothes,,
and then the food comes... and she sounds like a hungry basset hound over a bowl of beef stew.

i thought she was going to lick the plate at one point.


I just dont get it...... well, im sure no one along the way had the nerve to critique her.
