What sets your teeth on edge???
« on: 03/04/2009 10:54:55 »
We all jave our 'things' that sets our teeth on edge, that we cannot stand no matter what!

Mine is wet wool....!!! I don't mean sheep in a field so you are safe Neil!  I cannot stand the feeling of wet jumpers/cardigans etc when they come out the wash! Just the thought of it makes my teeth go numb and my toes curl!
You should see the performance I have when doing the laundry, if there is someone else about, I will always ask them to remove offending wet wool item out of the washing machine, or ask them to hang it up on the line. If no one is about, I have to wrap both my hands in a wet t-shirt or towel, and then pick up the wet woolly thing!! Trying to hang it up on the line is interesting, with both hands wrapped up!
It doesn't even have to be pure proper wool, acrylic has the same affect!

I also hate knives and forks being squeaked across the plate, or saucepans on a gas hob, when you move them sometimes they squeak on the metal rack....arrggghh!!

So whats all of yours???  :)

Ah yes. Knives and forks squeaking across a plate or simply being rubbed together. Even the thought of it makes me cringe.

Well that confirms me as being a fruitloop then....

One of my friends has a thing about cotton wool, another has a real problem about wet wooden spoons!!!

One of the punishments we had as children at school was to be made to have a wet sleeve. [:-'(]

LOL..LOL I hate that feel of fabric which snags your fingers it gives me the creeps.. but noises would still be a record being scratched.. can't think of much else except a dog chewing one of those pork fat rawhides when they get really slimy and the sound in the dogs mouth as he chews and gags trying to swallow it is so gross!

Well, it was recommended by Dr. Beaver. He told me that he wore it ll the time ans he said it was quite comfortable. He sent me a pair of his and he even sent me the name of his haberdasher - something to do with Fredric's of Hollywood. But I didn't like the lace on the pair he sent so I ordered some without lace - one only.

Hated it. And I won't trust the Beaver again - ever.

I have heard the banjo described as "a musical instrument for the antisocial", but this one is far more deserving of that title.

Drying up wooden spoons; accidentally squeeking your teeth with an apple; that funny muffly feeling when you slowly separate pieces of cotton wool; coins or tops that wroing wroing wroing wroing for ages; David ****ing Gray, Micheal ****ing Bolton and James ****ing Blunt.

Blunt. Ha!
