I’m not particularly irritated by either of these, tbh.

(Although I am a loud sneezer, so it’d be hypocritical for me to be irked by that).

I wish I could I could control my painfully loud hayfever sneezes. I really do. Hate drawing attention to myself like that in public but when it’s hayfever season I am SNEEZING.

But some people are really engaging the vocal chords. You have to make effort to engage the vocal chords to really enunciate the AAAARRRETCHOOOOOOOOO

Slightly off topic, but the worst sneeze is when you’re in the middle of eating cereal :confused:

WAAAAAA-CHOOOO!

Oh, excuse me.

To qualify… Small burps can’t be controlled. Those massive gross ones can.

Even a small burp I think you can just close and cover your mouth.
Burps - rude
Farts - funny
