THIRK Thursdays are things-that-irk-me Thursdays. There's a different little annoyance or pet peeve each Thursday.
I absolutely cannot stand it when someone talks with a mouth full of food - or even with a little bit of food in the mouth. It's gross and it's terribly impolite. Of course, there's an exception: if there's a fire, go ahead and yell, "Fire!" Otherwise, don't talk with food in the mouth.
The second one is smacking. That's a little annoyance as well.
I read about a company executive who always took promising job applicants to lunch. He made his final hiring decisions based on table manners. He probably didn't like these two habits either.
Do these bother you?
