Our expert says:
The examples you quote seem to be of badly brought-up people with lousy table-manners and a selfish disregard for other people. Eating with an open mouth has no particular advantages for the sloppy eater, but is usually unpleasant for those compelled to watch and hear the performance.
So to be irritated is not surprising nor abnormal. The real issue for you may be why you find these situations impossible to evade, why you react so strongly and with more distress than they deserve, and why you think of more violent interventions, rather than simpkly speaking calmly to someone saying something like : "YOu know, when you eat like that with your mouth so open, it looks really ugly and puts other people off their food. Have you thought of maybe doing that differently ?"
If these people are in your family, does EVERYONE else do it that way ? And don't other family members also find this unpleasant ?
