Bibble. You know those people in your favorite restaurant who drink and/or eat noisily? What they are doing is referred to as bibble.

AND it is one of my biggest pet peeves.  I feel very strongly about eating a lot of food while at the same time doing it quietly.  I can now tell someone to please stop bibbling. So much nicer than shuuuuuttttttt upppppp!!

I am not alone in this eye-rolling activity.  Loud eating makes it to the top 10 of hundreds of top pet peeve lists.  Trust me on this.  I googled it and sure enough, to bibble ranks on nearly all top 10 lists as one of the biggest pet peeves for a very large portion of society. If google says it, it must be true.  It’s nice to not be alone.

“Good manners: The noise you don’t make when you’re eating soup.”
Bennett Cerf, humorist, publisher (1898-1971)

I hate mouth noises of all kinds – chewing, swallowing, gum smacking, heavy breathing. S.E. Cupp

“Mr. Jesmond made a peculiar noise rather like a hen who has decided to lay an egg and then thought better of it.”
Agatha Christie, ‘The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding’ (1925)

“….the noise from good toast should reverberate in the head like the thunder of July.”
E.V. Lucas, ‘When Toasters Disagree’ (1906)
