I'm usually a pretty easygoing person, but this is one thing that I just can't seem to get over. Am I the only one with this weird pet peeve?
I think it is gross when people chew it obnoxiously, but it can be fun to blow bubbles sometimes. I used to love all flavors, but now I only like sugar-free mint flavors.

But I'm chewing gum right now! Mmmm. Altoids Peppermint gum is my current obsession, but I don't like the artificial sweetener, so I need to find a different one.
Of course, my daughter likes it . . . but I do ask her not to chew it around me because it just disgusts me. :Puke:Puke:Puke

But yea, i also hate the smacking, the popping, and the nasty stale breath people get from chewing gum for a while. Ugh.
Small PSA, if your breath stinks, chewing gum (or sucking a mint for that matter) just makes your breath smell like *insert flavor of gum or mint here* WITH bad breath. You need to brush your teeth or floss, gum never quite gets it, imo.
I used to share a studio with some people, and when they went smoke-free a couple of people who smoked while they worked started chewing gum instead. I think I was the only non-smoker who preferred the smoking to the gum.

My DH chews gum on his commute. But, since he's in the car, by himself, and spits it out as soon as he gets home (he says it helps keep him awake for the drive), I can't really complain.
