What sounds drive you nuts?

barking dogs (like nails on a chalkboard)
rap
train whistles too close to your house at 6 a.m.
people loudly sniffling repeatedly
loud motorcycles
cell phone conversations where they dont belong (stores, etc)

CELL PHONES:
I was in a bar yesterday and two middle aged women were sitting having a drink. I was there for about half an hour and one of them was on her mobile to different people for about twenty minutes of this. She spoke sooooo loud I almost told her to shut the whatever up! :(

Welcome to WebmasterWorld. Speaking of loud cell phone conversations - here's a funny video on how you can make these people aware of their being annoying: [youtube.com...]

My car engine made a sound last Friday. A new engine is going to cost several thousand dollars. Talk about annoying sounds.

Hands down, crying baby. We're wired to be annoyed by it.

Second in line: the sound a nut, bolt, washer, screw or other tiny one-of-a-kind part makes when it disappears into some black hole in an engine compartment, gone forever. Corollary: these disasters always occur after 6 PM on a Saturday, when you've no hope of even trying to locate a new one until Monday morning. Awful sound.

Third: Screeching alternator or air conditioning belt, because I know a new belt and an hour's time will make it go away and save a ton of money.

Fourth: this one is very specific but other RC heli owners will know it, fear it, nay, dread it. The (VERY EXPENSIVE) sound an RC heli makes when it prematurely meets the Earth, it's moving wings making a flapping death rattle noise like a dying dragon. <shudder>

I think that's what he meant.

Why do faucets only drip at night when you're trying to sleep?

Tired? No.

Broke? Yes.

Looking for a good price on a built 5.4 liter. That would be music to my ears.

Many noises annoy me,I agree about rap or to use it's proper name "C"rap and here are just a few others in no particular order:
Country and western music
Anything sung by Elton John
Northern Irish accents
South African Accents
(I'm not a bigot I quite like the people, I just find their accents unbearably harsh and sometimes difficult to understand)
Morons who pronounce words that end in "er" or "or" as though they ended in "a" e.g. Teacha, Docta, cola (colour/color).
White kids who adopt a cod ghetto "gangsta" patois because they think it is clever.
People who end every sentence on a rising note as though it were a question. (the Australian soaps can take most of the blame for this abhorrent trend)
Whistling without using the lips (a sort of horrible rythmic hissing sound)
The word "innit" (e.g. as used by some of the London looters on a tv news bulletin "it's because we is getting back our taxes innit")
The orgasmic grunting noise made by women tennis players.
The whimpering of my victims as they beg for their worthless lives. (joking)

Old Honky you're the man! Good ones. About that "innit" thing - I also dont like the way Londoners say "chube" instead of tube.

That's what makes it so annoying . . .

For me the sound of leaf blowers at 6 am Monday morning.
Also the sound of the phrase "you know what I'm saying".

True, but I will take "went" over the latest cancer of the English language that started with bubblegum chewing teenybopper Valley girls, and has spread for some foolish reason to supposedly grown, sometimes educated adults, including men! and that cancer is "I was like...and she was like...."

Kids of any age, though the older they get the less they annoy me!
The neighbors poor music taste made obvious when he's got the volume up too loud.

I can't believe this has not made number one yet (it has got to be): car alarms, duh!
Also any sound made by Tim McGraw. Talk about babies crying...

The sound of a gun as it is being cocked, just before the thug yells, your wallet or your life.

The sound of bones breaking as my motorcycle is plowed down by a car.

As mentioned above; the sound of a putter as my car engine dies.

The sound of an air plane engine going out, followed by an emergency landing and spending the next 36 hours in a hell hole airport in Honduras where there is space for 20 or so people yet the 100+ that were on the airplane have to live in because the outside of the airport was even more un-inviting than the inside.

The sound of pouring rain while I hitchhiking through the country side; knowing I will not get a ride if I'm soaking, and many miles from anything.

The sound of some animal stealing my poncho which I left out to dry, knowing I'm going to spend the next 3 days up in the mountains, a very intense 8 hour walk away from anywhere remotely near, and likely at least another hour or so in a car to get to a place where they would sell another.

The sounds of non-stop vomiting because of eating/drinking something you didn't quite know the origin of in a place which you didn't know well.

The sound of a knife as it sinks into your flesh.



Those sounds annoy me. I guess I like adventure, but that also helps me be above most normal 'annoying' sounds in day to day life.

Use of horn even when the road is pretty clear and empty. No crossing ahead.
