List #36: 10 noises I could live without hearing

Pretty sure he was snoring when this was taken...
Stasha's Monday Listicles topic for the week is annoying noises:
    1. Trucks engine-braking in front of my house. I don't live on a highway--WTF?
    2. Snoring. (Unless it's being produced by a baby or a cat. Then it's adorable.)
    3. My neighbour across the street squawking in imitation of the crows when they gather in the trees. 
    4. The click of the enter key when I hit 'publish' too soon by accidentally.
    5. The skrick when I bite down on a grain of sand in my food.
    6. My neighbour's ridiculous car stereo. Does it really  need to be loud enough that our windows rattle?
    7. A really large fly trying to get out through the glass of the window. Bzzrrt. Bzzrrt. Bzzrrt. Bzzrrt.
    8. Teenagers calling each other 'faggot' on public transit. Accusing someone else of being gay shouldn't be the worst insult in your arsenal, you homophobic little brats.
    9. Small dogs left outside in their yard to bark. Yes, another neighbour.
    10. Cheap earbuds blasting the latest, greatest pop drivel in public places. iPod headphones in particular seem to produce more 'music' for other people than the wearer.

    Why Monday lists? Reading the lovely Chloe's blog, Tea Swamp Park, I found an idea I had to 'steal': a list of all her Halloween costumes, with quite a few photos. She got the idea from Hula Seventy's List Project. I've decided to do the weekly lists for a year that Hula Seventy is doing. 

    Tea Swamp Park & Hula Seventy are not the only ones doing lists, however. Click on the Listicles badge to the left to check out NorthWestMommy's list & 'assignment' for next week.

    1. You have a neighbor that sqawks like crows? Oh my how funny (for me. for you, not so much!). Fun list!

    2. The sounds of air breaks drive me nuts too.

    3. Okay, now my neighbor's incessant leaf blowing doesn't seem all that bad. Seriously, you have a neighbor who squawks with the crows?! I'd snap.

    4. I would be VERY tempted to bean the crow squawking neighbor with a small rock and sling shot. Of course I would enjoy that immensely. We have a rat yapper out back. Sigh...I LOVE animals, don't get me wrong, there are days I'd like to shoot that one!

    5. Yippee barky dogs are no fun at all!!

    6. The grain of sand is especially annoying if you're not at the beach. ;P

    7. Very, very strongly agree with #8!

    8. Holy onomatopoeia! "Skrick" perfectly captures the sound of biting down on sand. Ellen

    9. Yappy dogs are just plain awful. So true about snoring, with babies is it adorable!

    10. i totally agree with you on the snoring thing. whenever my 7lb chiweenie snores i die laughing, adorable indeed!

    11. Oh, ick. I hate the feel and sound of the biting down on sandiness in food.
