Why Do People Chew With Their Mouth Open?

Wed Feb 06, 2008 3:50 pm

I want to strangle them when they do that. Please, for the love of all that is good and holy, don't chew with your mouth open. Thank you.

It's disgusting and shows lack of manners. I'm really not interested in what the food looks like after being mashed 15 times.

In my family, my sister and my dad were horrible at this and it used to make me sick to my stomach.....I havent noticed sis doing lately but I dont know about my dad....Hes dead....

Its just very sickening to have to sit thru someone chewing their food and to hear that smacking sound...
Uh-oh, I think that Im getting dry heaves just thinking about it.....

Whats even worse if people that speak whilst eating and food flying out in tiny peices.....Oh yeah....for sure now I am gonna puke....

As far as I can tell, the only semi-acceptable reason to do so is if your nose is incredibly stuffy and you can't breathe through it while you chew.

My step-dad's jaw would click when he ate, and he chewed with his mouth open. After a few meals, I decided to not eat in the same room as him.

Even then you can do it subtly. I just tell people if it pisses me off, I'm not going to sit there and get annoyed in silence.

Maybe I should do that....between the open mouth chewing and the screaming in my head there's a good chance I might (in)advertantly hurt someone.

Add to that someone eating potato chips (or anything crunchy for that matter) next to you on a stressfull day...especially if in a crowded place or a bus. That just makes me want to beat them to a bloody pulp  fight

I hate listening to people eat and talk at the same time. There is nothing so urgent to say that you have to say it with a mouthful of food.

I personally don't like to be around open mouthed chewing, slurping, lip smacking..., but I have found in my travels that in some countries (especially in Asia) it is considered the norm.

For the most part, and almost always for those people who consistently do it, it is disgusting. However, from personal experience I have had to do it occasionally:

- Sometimes the food is at such a temperature to be just about hot enough to burn the inside of the mouth. Having the mouth open can help cool off food enough to swallow it before it burns. Of course, after this happens once, the best thing to do is just wait a bit longer until it cools down more. Definitely don't keep eating the hot food in that manner.
- Similarly, putting too much food in at once can cause this, but the wise thing to do is obviously eat smaller bites.
- For some reason my dad and I both have big problems of biting our lips and cheeks when we eat chewy foods. I don't know why this is. Sometimes, if the food is real chewy, it gets so bad that it is hard to consciously avoid biting, because it seems like every attempt to chew the food brings the cheeks or lips into the path of teeth. It drives me nuts. But whenever that happens usually trying to eat with the mouth open avoids it.

However, in both of these situations, the incident is isolated, and most of the meal is eaten with the mouth closed. Also, most importantly, if I have to do it I will cover my mouth with a napkin and/or hand so nobody has to see it! And it is never on purpose.

OMG.....MaverickM11, you are too funny!

I HATE it when people chew with their mouth wide open.....or talk with a mouthful of food. Dam, it is such poor manners.

I work with a lot of females that chew their food off of a spoon taking little bites off a chunk of blubber and bones, then push what they don't want back onto the spoon so they can eat it once they have swallowed the first hunk. They don't even take the spoon away from their mouths.....some cultures just do that. It's almost as if it is their last supper!!! haha They look like camels having their last meal. It sure makes me sick!

My roommate is so loud that he's woken me up at 5AM smacking on a hamburger. As soon as he mentions eating, I put on my headphones.

It's so bad that I have a hard time talking to other people while he eats. How the hell do you get so many decibels just eating a fricking burger?

My roommate also claims that I eat "slow." He doesn't seem to realize that he finishes his dinner fifteen minutes before everyone else because he's practically vacuuming it in. And just as loud too.
