I’m so relieved I found other people sharing my same, say, “disorder”!
I can’t stand people sniffling, chewing with mouth open and sucking soup or noodles.
I’m coping with this problem since I was about 15 yo (and I’m 36 now) and I often exploded with insane anger with the “culprit”, parents, friends or whoever.
Then I moved in Japan 2 years ago and it’s even worse than before: here people NEVER use tissues, at least until snot drips from their very nose, and ALWAYS suck noodles, ramen, udon, soba and whatever is poured in a soup-like dish. I usually wear headphones with relaxing music, at work, on the train or in cafeterias, and avoid restaurants offering ramen and the like.
Gosh, I really can’t stand it!
