In a recent conversation...

... a friend of mine indicated that one of her pet peeves is something she has termed "unnecessary noise". I was amused as she indicated that drumming fingers, tapping fingernails, clicking pens, humming and whistling all drive her crazy.

That was until I was exposed to the spoon clinker. This individual is convinced that the only way she can dissolve sugar in her coffee is by stirring it a minimum of one thousand times making sure that her spoon clinks her cup every single stir.

This unnecessary noise is in no way melodic, it is not akin to the tintinnabulation of wind chimes. It does evoke the homicidal maniac in me.

Spooners, beware!
