You know that loud, sharp noise when you drop the toilet seat from full height?  If I hear anything like that, I try to snap the necks of anyone within reach.

Hope that was all in fun. There are zero marriages where one person doesn't do something that annoys the shiat out of the other. The sooner we all realize that the sooner we can appreciate our spouses for the things that don't annoy you.

The sound of nails on a chalkboard does not bother me but teeth on a fork does.


/That being said, the sight of a hand running across a chalkboard is extremely cringe worthy.

Difficult for me to judge on the context of a short news story.

He could be a total ahole who deliberately provokes his wife hoping to get a response, or is insensitive to how much it bothers her.

She could be a controlling shrew who uses her condition (or perhaps "condition") as a tool to manipulate. Or maybe she married a handsome boor and her plan to class him up has not worked as planned.

Given that she resorted to public shaming of her spouse, I am leaning towards the second paragraph. but I also think these two deserve each other. Water finds its own level where birds of a feather are flocking.

I know misiphonia is real. I have not been formally diagnosed but certain sounds are majorly irritating to me in a way others don't grasp.  I didn't buy $300 Bose headphones for the audiophile sound but for the noise canceling.

However, I also know more than a few self-diagnosed people who use their malady like a weapon in wars of attrition with family.

Spanky McStupid: That freaking Benefull commercial where the "dog" narrates while eating makes me want to punch the Pope.


There was a woman I worked with that would be eating on EVERY farking conference call she was ever on. I think she ate every single minute of the day. She would sound just like that dog. There were times I would just drop because it was making me climb the walls.

She was also that person that would microwave fish and burn popcorn too so...

The Mrs. used to blow off a little steam by complaining about me to her friends. One evening she complained with me sitting there. Two of them offered to swap her their ex husbands.  Immediate and permanent change in her behavior.

My son has misophonia but unfortunately the sound that sets him off is caused by my daughters and my TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders) which cause our jaws and thus mouths to make noises as we move things so that we do not feel pain.

When it started I would just play music as we ate, then he was on the other side of the table, and eventually upstairs.  If I am around him I clench my jaws and speak that way as he does not hear the noise that bothers him.  If we are in a situation where it is hard to hear me, if I am shouting from a distance, or if as I said above my jaw does not move he is fine.

Misophonia sucks.

How do people with misophonia survive some asian cultures with the slurping noises?  From my limited understanding some people just are wired for this issue, but I have never seen a cultural breakdown of this issue.  I have a Chinese co-worker who is the loudest eater I know and cultura

You know those occasional stabbing rampages you hear about from China? I assume this is the cause. I know it would be if I had to listen to smacking and slurping with no escape...

He is now 16, started to bug him at 13-14 but it was at first get the music volume up, then get him a bit away (he was now always behind me in the back seat of the car), then it was could I clench my jaw and eventually he gave up and went upstairs at dinner and would wear headphones in the car.

Now my wife says my daughter and I make noise as we talk and eat that she can hear (it is apparently a a click, click with a smack, smack).  I have never gone in for treatment but my daughter has and while it has helped her jaw to be more comfortable (especially important as she is a musician) is has never totally removed what has bugged my son.

We are all working on it, believe it or not if we talk LOUD it makes a difference for him, I guess our jaws and mouth act differently.  Eating still sucks but we spend other times together.  So now we shout a lot at each other, but very happily.

I wish contemporary law allowed me to murder the 2 young boneheads that gun their motorcycles at ridiculous speed and volume up and down the strip of road outside my apartment as an extension of their masculinity and personal virtue.  It wakes up my niece and nephew when they're sleeping over without fail and makes extra work to get them settled again.  I want to yell out the window:  "Yeah, rev it bro!  We're all impressed!  Holy crap, how cool are THESE guys?"

There was a kid who sat at my lunch table who would quite deliberately chew loud just to annoy people.  I don't care about eating sounds but that guy annoyed the hell out of me.

I got him back when I started leaving specks of food on my face, and refusing to brush them off whenever he pointed them out.

Come to think of it, based on everyone's reactions, that bothered them far more than the loud chewing.  Well tough shjt everyone, you should have took my side when I complained about the loud chewing.

When the specialist they send you to says "I have never seen this before" it is time to say "farkkkk......"

That sounds like my wife, she has a form of Myasthenia Gravis that her current doctor who is a nationally recognized researcher says no one ever has...and she has it (I do not know it he finally ended up publishing her case).  You do not want to be this patient, EVER!  You want to be boring, you want to hear "here is a shot and/or pill and call me in two weeks if you don't feel better".  Good luck to your Dad, I hope they can find a treatment (my wife has been doing reasonably well for almost a decade now).

Married even longer after living together for a while, and I agree this is not teasing this is both of them being purposely mean to the other all as a "joke".  This is far from a healthy relationship.

My wife and I tease each other, for example I'll sneak a pinch of her butt or quickly hug her from behind and put my hands over her boobs when no one can see us just to hear her squeak.  But the thing is I respect her boundaries, I never do this in public or in front of the kids, I don't do it if she is tired or feeling sick, and I know that as much as sometimes she wishes I didn't she is also happy that I do because it shows her how much she still turns me on if that makes sense.   We tease but it is always something where it make us both realize how much we love the other.  This couple is just nasty, they are not teasing they are showing how much they hate the other.

My father died of MSA 10 years ago this week.

Getting it diagnosed took several years. He had already resorted to going to Rochester, but then got referred to Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. The specialist there started ticking off questions about symptoms, yes, yep, that too, etc., symptoms that were handwaved away by previous diagnosticians, except the *one* symptom that fit their favorite diagnosis.

Here's one to try.

Wear a shirt with a breast pocket and a light jacket over it. Get a spool of thread of a colour that will stand out against the jacket and a needle. Pull a bit of thread through the jacket, back to front near the pocket. Cut it, leaving a small bit of thread outside. Leave the rest of the thread on the spool. It will look like a bit of thread is stuck to your jacket. Drop the spool into your shirt pocket.

Now wait for someone to try to pluck the stray bit of thread off your jacket.

Wow, my Dad died 9 years and 11 months ago and I know how awful it is when it happens and how awful it can still be all this time later.  That had to be so hard, and I know anniversaries like that are really hard (especially the "big ones") from when I was younger and was not dealing with my Mom's death.

You take care of yourself, let people close to you know if they don't so they realize why you might be off, and don't do anything stupid like I used to because I refused to admit I was upset (I almost blew things with my girlfriend now wife when we were in college because I didn't even realize what was happening when it was the 10th anniversary of my Mom's death).

Which is as old as history.  The difference now is that social media instantly amplifies personal grievances for the bandwagon-hungry, with all the resulting fallout and misdirection, very occasional justice, and more often increased confusion.  Whether this is a societal benefit or hindrance is contextual and a question probably better left to philosophers.  I feel bad to have been flippant in a thread that has turned pretty serious, but that's Fark for you.  If I'd been serious, the thread probably would have turned flippant.

Phelon Hardtimes: DoctorCal: Phelon Hardtimes: interstellar_tedium: Phelon Hardtimes: interstellar_tedium: My son has misophonia but unfortunately the sound that sets him off is caused by my daughters and my TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders) which cause our jaws and thus mouths to make noises as we move things so that we do not feel pain.

When it started I would just play music as we ate, then he was on the other side of the table, and eventually upstairs.  If I am around him I clench my jaws and speak that way as he does not hear the noise that bothers him.  If we are in a situation where it is hard to hear me, if I am shouting from a distance, or if as I said above my jaw does not move he is fine.

Misophonia sucks.

How old is your son?  Just curious.

He is now 16, started to bug him at 13-14 but it was at first get the music volume up, then get him a bit away (he was now always behind me in the back seat of the car), then it was could I clench my jaw and eventually he gave up and went upstairs at dinner and would wear headphones in the car.

Now my wife says my daughter and I make noise as we talk and eat that she can hear (it is apparently a a click, click with a smack, smack).  I have never gone in for treatment but my daughter has and while it has helped her jaw to be more comfortable (especially important as she is a musician) is has never totally removed what has bugged my son.

We are all working on it, believe it or not if we talk LOUD it makes a difference for him, I guess our jaws and mouth act differently.  Eating still sucks but we spend other times together.  So now we shout a lot at each other, but very happily.

I'm glad you have worked out some of the querks and wish your family the best.  I was not familiar with this unique disorder so I have learned something today.  Best to you.

My father has a rare condition called "MSA"  Multiple System Atropthy.  It's so uncommon that that Johns Hopkins has had him in for studies.

Apologies. I neglected to extend my ...


I have been reading on MSA, and that is a really tough one that I never heard of before which scares me (why are there some many things I never heard of?).  Like you my Dad was my best friend and for almost a decade it was just the two of us against the world after my Mom died and before I went off to college, and I can't imagine how hard this must be for you.  You hang in there and remember sometimes the doctors are wrong, and in the meantime spend time with him doing whatever you can together and make memories (really, my last day with my Dad pre-stroke we cut down trees and cleared the pond on the family land and I cooked us dinner, wouldn't trade that day for anything).

'I don't want no money he is FREE.

So, the headline is correct.  She does want money for him.  But then she goes on about him being FREE in what should really be an entirely different sentence.  I can only assume by that she means that he is emancipated or otherwise unencumbered.

Then again perhaps she is just a semi-literate twat.

Thank you and I am sorry for your loss as well.  I quit my last job so I could be closer to my Father after he was diagnosed with MSA.  I didn't understand how important your family was until I was around 30.  Now my family is everything.  Like you, now I spend all the quality time I can with my Father and appreciate every minute of it.  Sometimes I get upset it took me so long to enjoy those times.

You sound like you have things together.

My Dad and I were apart most of the time from when I was 18 until I was in my 40's and he was in his 80's.  It wasn't anything except I went to school, started dating and then lived with and finally married my wife, had kids, got jobs, and just felt that there was always more time.  Now I would visit for a week or 2 every summer and occasionally more than once, and it wasn't like he didn't have my step-mom (aka she who will not be named), and I called him a lot but still...somehow we had drifted apart, but after the kids were born we visited more often.  Now fortunately I started spending a week and a half with him and just him just before he had his stroke.  It is funny I learned more things about my Dad in that bit of time than I think I ever had before despite the years we had spent together, although sadly I learned many more after he died that I wish I could have talked to him about.

I really envy you, I wish 30 or 40 year old me had been smart enough to take that time.

interstellar_tedium: You take care of yourself,


Sympathies and well-wishes appreciated, and returned.
I'm good. The intervening decade has been rich and eventful, so the recollections are now nearly always joyful.

That is good, I am glad to hear it.  Give him one toast for me, I will toast my Dad in September with a Vernors Ginger Ale which is what we used to drink when we went fishing.

abhorrent1: Thong_of_Zardoz: abhorrent1: Misophonia, if you didn't know, is a sensitivity to certain noises. Teresa can't handle listening to people eating loudly.

I totally have that. I CAN NOT stand eating sounds. I've had to get up from the table and leave the room to go eat my myself more times that I can remember. If we're at my house, I usually have a radio or TV on for some background noise, but sitting silently at a table listening to people eat makes me murdery.

Same here. Corn on the cob is especially troublesome for me.
I don't know that there's any particular food for me. It's chewing/smacking sounds, heavy breathing and especially swallowing noises.

If I see a commercial for like Gatorade or some other drink and they use glug glug swallowing sounds as they show them drinking it, it makes me want to stab a baby.

And if you scrape your teeth on your fork, I will farking set you on fire.


So I guess messy oral sex is off the menu?...

Yeah, there's no such thing as misophonia. It's even less real than the mid-life crisis. What you actually have is "I'm an intolerant whiny coont" syndrome.
