    Eating noises - mainly saliva, munching, chewing with mouths open. Crunching isn't so bad, but saliva my god! I want to lash out and punch the person.

    I used to sit next to a woman who ate an apple every day and the sound of it used to make me really angry. The crunching and then the chewing...ewwwww. It got to the point where I would have to leave my desk when she took her first bite, or I'd end up agitated and cranky.

    I hate the sound of chairs scraping on the food court floor. Drives me insane.

    I hate the radio or music on in a house , I will have it on in the car but not too loud.

    I detest the tv being on unless I'm watching it.

    I loathe music being on too loud at restaurants and you have to talk loudly to have a conversation, I just want to leave.

    I don't really have any unusual ones, but at the moment I really just can't stand the sound of my 4yo son and 3yo daughter fighting. They've always been so in love, they are best friends, and I've also always been a very patient mum who doesn't let the little things get to me, but lately they are fighting a LOT lot. Lot lot lot. And yeah, I realy can't stand the sound of it at all anymore.

    Chairs scraping
    Plates bashing together or cutlery on plates and bowls etc (I use plastic cutlery cause I just can't cope with the noise!)
    Anything being put in/taken out of a freezer - the ice scraping noise *shudder*
    Nails on blackboard
    The bass on someone's music if they have it up loud - any kind of rhythmic thumping noises just makes me feel sick instantly.
    The high pitched noise they use to keep owls away from shops in the UK. (Also supposed to stop teenagers hanging around outside them which is why they use a certain frequency). Haven't heard it as much here.
    Dripping noises - any leaks or drips have to be sorted immediately because I will tune into them and feel sick until they are gone. The roof on our old house would always drip onto the roof of the conservatory every time it rained so I ended up throwing a load of towels onto the conservatory roof to stop the noise of the drip hitting the roof.

    There's probably a lot more lol I'm not great with quite a lot of noises. Just have to remove myself from the situation pretty much straight away.

    Lots of these but one that hasn't been mentioned, when people snort/suck the mucous up from there nose/throat. That weird noise that should not be made, you should just blow your nose!!

    I actually told off a dr at work before I went on leave for doing it and told her to go get a tissue. She turned around and said to me, ok mum! Oops, but it is seriously feral!

    And I can't stand the 'glug glug glug' sound of liquid pouring out of a bottle into a glass. Makes me crazy!!
