 There are so many sounds in the world, some pleasant like the sound of rain, nice music even ASMR to give you tingles. Some sounds just make you grit your teeth and cover your ears! According to a 2017 article, these are 10 of the most annoying sounds that bother people:

  1. Whining
  2. Eating, chewing, and slurping
  3. Snoring, sniffing and loud breathing
  4. Mobile ringtones
  5. Alarm clocks and car alarms
  6. Polystyrene rubbed together
  7. Nails or squeaky chalk against a blackboard
  8. Clicking pens
  9. Dogs barking
  10. Mosquitos and flies

  I agree with all of those, especially that alarm clock. I would also add scratching on certain textures like bricks… I get the shivers just thinking about it. What sounds bother you the most? Read the whole article through the link below.
