Modern Manners Monday: What Would YOU Do?

File:Chewing gum stick.jpg

You've a day shopping planned with a good friend.

The two of you decided to head to an outlet mall nearly two hours away.

She's driving.

About 15 minutes into the ride, she pops a piece of her gum in her mouth.

She proceeds to chew it such that it sounds like firecrackers are exploding in her pie hole.

You can't possibly tolerate this for another one hour, forty-five minutes and thirty seconds.

What would YOU do?

  3. In a humorous way I'd let her know it's driving me crazy. I'd keep it light, but I would gently ask her to stop.

  4. I find gum chewing slightly vulgar. Even silent gum makes me nuts. My friends know better than to chew-chew-chew in front of me. Beecause they love me they abstain to humor me and my son does it to make me crazy (we are in those oppositional teen years).
    I agree with anonymous that I would keep it light, laugh and ask her to stop. If she didn't I would have to seriously reconsider our friendship for the sake of my sanity!!!!
    My apologies to the gum chewers of the world for offending you but TBS asked....

  6. OMG......My co-worker who sits right across from me does this almost everyday. UUHHHGGGGGGG
    It dives me CRAZY. And in the office even!?!?! I just stare at her until she says ..opps sorry. So I would do the same thing, just stop talking and stare at her until she asks me why.

  7. I'd sing off key.....and when she asked me to stop I'd tell her I would if she'd stop with the gum popping.

  9. I would ask for a piece of that gum. It's kind of like garlic. If everybody has it, nobody notices.

  10. Tell her you are SO sorry, but that is one of your BIGGEST pet peeves and ask her if she would mind not smacking!! She probably doesn't even realize she's doing it and will gladly stop.

  13. "Dang girl you killin that gum"
    if that didn't work I'd turn the music up really loud and tell her I'm trying to drown her out

  14. Well, if you're a true friend you would tell her to stop and besides it's not polite to chew with your mouth open. LOL!

  15. I think all of these suggestions are great. I dont chew gum much because I have no gum manners. So I was chewing the other day and the girl looked at me and said, "Gum Good?" My famous reply, "Wat Dat?"

    I stopped. Spit in out and kept going. Goid friend/co worker, but she made me realized what I didnt know.

  16. @Anonymous. That's hilarious. If I were driving, I'd take the car from 50 mph to 80 mph while driving like a mad woman. And when she asks why I'm going so fast, I'd tell her I think someone's shooting at our car...I keep hearing bullets. LOL I bet she'd stop popping and cracking then!
