My dad and I chew gum like cows. It desensitized me. When I was younger I couldn't stand anyone's chewing, but avoiding it made it worse. Now I can tolerate almost any chewing, yawning, scraping, whatever. Exposure therapy really does help, that's my only advice. So, get with a friend, parent, spouse, whatever, and go chew some gum along with them, trust me--it's hard at first, but it really desensitizes you quick.

I hate when people chew with their mouth open. It makes me want to smack the crap out of them.
I also don't like how television commercials exaggerate crunchy food noises.

I eat like a seagul, do you see a seagul ever chew with it's mouth closed. I rest my case.

Personally, and no offence to the member in question, but I have my doubts as to whether working next to AugustusMasonicus would be better considering all those cocktails and fancy food threads I've read of his....
