10 Annoying Sounds You Need to Stop Making
First, here’s the link, http://theweek.com/articles/462196/10-annoying-sounds-need-stop-making
I’m going to skip to one sound in particular. It is the sound someone makes when they suck air through their teeth. The French call it “kissing your teeth” or “le tchip” and has been banned in French schools. Apparently, this sucking act is a very offensive gesture indicating utter contempt.
4. Velar-ingressive linguadental fricative
“Sucking your teeth.” Often this is to the side, not right in the middle. It can signify something like “Stand back, I’m thinking — can’t you smell the smoke?”
I couldn’t even make it to the next post without being thoroughly disgusted by the abhorrent noises emanating from the colossal buffoon masquerading as homo sapiens sapiens when in truth he is a bit below slime mold on the evolutionary depth chart.
Not to be outdone, even by himself, this pseudo human also shows up again on this infamous list:
10. Loud long low back vowel with advanced tongue root and full oral opening
“Moose-call yawns.” Not exactly a speech sound, but a sound that deliberately obtrudes and takes over the environs. It takes a simply bodily function — yawning — and turns it into an announcement, an excuse to dominate everyone within earshot for a moment. I had a roommate who did this all the time. He thought it was funny. Maybe if we had been in a frat house… but people are expected to get over reveling in bodily noises and using them to dominate the conversation once they become adults.
I might have to move to a place like France where they have the decency to ban this behavior in classrooms. I would one or two steps further and actually criminalize these acts. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/11651574/French-schools-ban-teeth-sucking.html
Whew! I had to get that off my chest. Of course, he probably suffers from some form of Orofacial myofunctional disorders so I should feel really guilty about it, but I don’t – that’s how annoying mouth breathing troglodytes are.
