We all eat, and most of us will eat with other people around us, but apparently we don’t necessarily enjoy that company. That’s because a lot of people have some bad eating habits, and for some they are simply unacceptable.
A new survey conducted by OnePoll and commissioned byFarm Rich finds:
- Bad eating habits are so unacceptable that 60% of Americans would end a date or break up with someone if they had a food habit they found annoying.
- That’s true for 42% of men and only 25% of women.
- Interestingly though, men are more likely to admit they are guilty of the same bad food habits.
- Overall, the most unacceptable food habit for people is talking with your mouth full.
- 68% of people say it’s the worst food sin, although 28% admit they are guilty of it.
- Other annoying eating habits include:
- Chewing loudly (64%)
- Open-mouth chewing (63%)
- Slurping food (52%)
- Double dipping (44%)
As for how most people handle such food offenses
- Gen-Z is apparently the most tolerant, with 73% saying they’d just ignore the annoying habit.
- Millennials though aren’t so tolerant, with 61% saying they’d ask the person to stop.
- 48% of Millennials also say they’d end a date or relationship over such an offense.
