It's not really annoying--just "peculiar"--but this woman I work with has to smell anything before she eats it. She gets this skeptical look on her face as if it's some foreign substance. I'd understand if it was some strange dish she'd never tried, but she does it even for granola bars, doughnuts, even food she cooked and brings to work for lunch. She doesn't even know she's doing it. She's the only person I've seen doing that so consistently. I also dated a guy in college who was obsessive about the food on his plate always staying separated--that is, no food could run over into another as it sat on the plate. My reaction ("But it's all going to get blended together eventually") made perfect sense to him, but he still wanted everything to have its own place. He would of course take forkfuls of one food or the other in separate bites. I'll bet he loved those compartmentalized plates they use in school cafeterias.
we had a food-sniffer at the office once, very feline - ish, her name was cathy, we called her cat,
she would approach her food like a cat, very peculiar to say the least, she was a food nazi, would always critique someone elses cooking, never a compliment.

Howard Hughes was known to do this.
It's a common trait with those dealing with OCD.

The worst eating behavior of all is WASTE! There are people in my town (and yours) who could live on what we throw out.

I agree. It's one of the reasons I make a lot of soup! Beside, I love soup

What eating behavior's irritate me the most? I'd say eating certain foods with your hands rather than with your fork or spoon. I also might get irritated if someone didn't finish their food.

Which "certain" foods? There are quite a few foods I eat with my hands.

My father-in-law invariably ladles a massive amount of salt all over the food I just cooked, without even tasting it. I suspect he has ruined his taste buds and can only taste salt.

There is one behavior that I sense is somewhat rare, but it has driven me to a breaking point.




And I am confident in saying that I think the foundation of it is based on a degree of severe mental illness:




When somebody orders something with French fries and the restaurant (usually a bar) has ketchup inside of a plastic squeeze bottle with a small opening at the top that the ketchup can be squeezed out of. . . . . . .




And the person literally applies a line of ketchup on each single French fry before eating it. One fry, after fry, each one getting a line of ketchup on top of it. Over and over, and over. Like seriously, how freaking mentally ill does somebody need to be to do that. They need to be hospitalized and medicated.

My son has done this in the past and he was definitely not mentally ill, or require hospitalization or medication. He was like 3 and had just been given the OK to use the ketchup bottle himself without parental help.
