]Just wondering what sounds is it that people can't stand? For me it's a freezer the sound of ice rubbing against ice is just painful for me. Other people get the same or other sounds?

Babies crying and people vomiting are the worst sounds for me. I have to try and find a quick way out of the situation and, if I can't, I get really anxious and irritated.

I really hate the vacuum, that's a horrible sound but overall, just loud people in general, I really hate especially when they show no consideration for anyone! :evil:

What about sounds people actually enjoy listening to? I personally adore the sound of rainfall. I could listen to that all day! Although, I would probably need the toilet a lot! :lol:

I hate the sound of somebody writing with chalk on a blackboard and sometimes of people writing on whiteboards too particularly when they flap them around. It sends shivers up my spine. Not sure about sounds I like actually. Although I quite like the sound of rain too.

any 'sharp' sounds. Like a fork scraping on a plate etc.

wrapping paper, and selotape. I despise these sounds, they make birthdays and christmas really bad. I think I'm one of the few people when I actually want to save opening presents till last because I can't stand the sound it feels like physical pain.

I think the only sounds i like are music. I love pianos and all matter of instruments. I especially love musicals. Music is one the few load noises I can actually listen to. I quite like rain now that I think about it.

lots of sounds for me :(
