I agree with ear buds. This is more a sensitive thing to me. You're more sensitive to noise. Best way is to block it out with other noise.
Don't forget that you also have some habits and noises that annoy them. Don't escalate it to a tit-for-tat feud.
It's incredible what seemingly simple things can annoy other people. I spend a lot of time on another forum and a thread regularly crops up entitled "Things workmates do that drive you mad". Amazingly one of the most common ones is people stirring tea or coffee for too long in the kitchen! Obviously other things like getting coffee granules in the sugar, stealing your milk or food out of the fridge, which are totally reasonable, but, stirring your brew??
when i hand over my note to the teller, i'm certainly not going to SIGN it! why then wear a mask?
Doh! You don't have to sign YOUR name!!!!
i think we've solved the OP's problem.
This may help but probably not....
When I was learning yoga there was a very noisy bunch of people in the hall. The instructor suggested just incorporating the noise and not have it interrupt your thoughts.
Works for me (sometimes) if someone is talking in a movie theather etc
I have worked in a couple places with serial throat clearers. Like every 15-20 seconds. It is the pinnacle of intolerable.
We had that guy...who also sang (loudly) and made crude jokes (constantly). His voice had just the right timbre to resonate the entire damn office. And, he had this weird smacky thing he did with his lips/gums. I developed minor misophonia from working there...
My solution was a promotion to a position with an office I have walls and a door. The only time it gets noisy is when my neighbour is doing a teleconference on speakerphone... then the headphones come out for me. I don't mind though... she's an awesome person so I'll let her have a few noisy times.
I spent some time in a co-workers cube last week and was amazed that the amount of background noise from informal discussions, phone calls, keyboards, etc.
Being around close family eating doesn't bother me. But that and some other noises, particularly in some settings which should normally be fairly quiet (such as a work environment), is fairly annoying. Noises from food wrappers is sometimes annoying as well. I suspect it may be a condition known as misophonia:
Yes, I was thinking about misaphonia, and we have a member of the family who is affected. One problem is that this can be quite a severe disturbance for some yet it is only just being acknowledged as something more than just irritation.
I happened to notice that Kelly Ripa complained several times on-air that the monitors were too loud.
I initially took it as Diva-ish or unprofessional, after all what soundman wants to be chastised openly and repeatedly on national TV ?
The wiki page mentions that she has misophonia.
