Interestingly lots of people suffer from it. I read some workplace blogs and it's recommended if you suffer from it to let HR know and invoke ADA accommodations. Some solutions given are moving your cubicle or moving the offender in the office.

Sorry to hear you are afflicted!!

Misophonia isn't just being grossed out or annoyed with the sound of someone chewing. This type of thing could certainly be improved with exposure. Misophonia, however, is much more severe and neurological in nature.



(Snipped for this quote)


Very true. Maybe I don't quite understand the degree of sensation a real misophonia sufferer endures. It sounds like it's completely horrible after reading the rest of the thread. At first I thought it was just an "unusual" annoyance with those sounds... but I guess it's a lot worse than that.


I'll have to do some more deep research on the subject!

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....


It would be. Plus I chew with my mouth closed and don't slurp my drinks.


Please excuse the failed comedy attempt that lacked the punchline which I have meanwhile forgotten. Somewhere between my brain and the keyboard a good portion of the words had fallen away and the rest was just...other words that didn't quite get to the point I'd forgotten. All that without cocktails Thank Dog it's Friday

ETA: After some thought, I do remember it was supposed to be a fart joke. Yeah...

All great comments and feedback! Maybe I will speak with HR and get my own office!

Meanwhile, there was a girl on the train this morning that I wanted to toss right out the window! She was sitting there eating her overnight-oats and making clinking sounds with the spoon in the mason jar, AND she was slurping and smacking her lips. It was all I could do to sit there and not punch her directly in the face!

Do you have a problem when people drag the fork against their teeth when eating? It makes me homicidal.
