Chairs being pushed on a stone floor under the table.. triggers me from past events.

Too much chatter / noise in a restaurant.

Car alarms, especially if the owner is away from the vehicle, and they go off for any length of time. But the noise that irritates me the most at the moment, is my DVD player. For some reason, when it's playing, it will periodically make a loud sort of vibrating/whirring sound, and it really interferes with my ability to enjoy the film :curseyou:

I really hate noisy restaurants too.

I also hate lawnmowers. I always associate it with spending days in bed with migraines as a child. Dark room, window open, all I could hear was people mowing their lawns. Irritating.

I also really hate the noise that HGV's make when they go past my house, and the way the house rattles.

I also hate the noise that fluorescent strip lights make when you turn them on, that tinkly/crackly noise and then the buzzing afterwards.

Aeroplanes, helicopters, sirens, loud music, people arguing and shouting, fire alarms, drilling, malicious laughter, balloons popping, the back gate banging, motor vehicles, the washing machine spin cycle, reversing vehicle warning noise, auto-tune in songs and metal cooking utensils scrapping against metal cookware to name a few.

Any noisy crowded place, makes me panicky. My hearing isn't 100 per cent so a noisy restaurant is impossible, I can't hear what people say to me, and I can't hear the music above the loud talking enough to tell what song they are playing. It is just loud confusion.

Drilling, building works nearby that go on and on. Dogs left home alone all day barking.

Eww yes. For me, people talking while they're crunching on something is worse though.

My youngest son used to grind his teeth really loudly in his sleep. That sound really gets to me.

That squeaky sound from polystyrene is another that makes me seethe.

Any sort of constant hum, like from the heater in the car, a fan oven, extractor fan, or an engine left running, especially HGVs. Also snoring, loud television, constant barking, and noisy excitable conversation.

The cats fighting at 3 or 4 in the morning. :D I am so jumpy now from the anxiety and panick disorders I jump and my heart skips a few beats at anything sudden and unexpected. The wirrrrr sound of my sons computer fan and the constant whine of my tinnitis in my left ear are particularily irritating.:(

Haha, I get an odd sense of satisfaction out of that noise. I know i'm weird.

-I don't like noisy eaters either.
-KISSING NOISES... ewww vom vom vom. It's not that i'm a jealous bitter singleton - I actually find kissing noises incredibly intrusive.
-Any sudden, loud unexpected noise.
-Those stupid little hairdryer-on-wheels-mopeds that seem to be so noisy.
-Car horns.
-Excitable/loud conversation.
-Any music that's too full on, and I don't mean volume, more like when there's just too many layers of sound.

The list could go on, to be honest..
