Some of the World’s Most Annoying Sounds

Some of the World’s Most Annoying Sounds

The world is full of beautiful, soothing sounds. It also has its share of annoying, alarming and disturbing ones. What annoys you?  Here are a few of the sounds most of us could probably do with less of.

The Alarm Clock

Even if you have an alternative type of alarm instead of a traditional buzzer, a morning alarm clock, just by its very nature, is annoying. You know what’s not annoying? Sleeping in on a Saturday.

Ice Makers

At home or in a hotel, ice makers make it nearly impossible to sleep, especially after a night of using lots of ice. Even during the day, that clunk of frozen water can get on your nerves.

Squeaky Anything

Doors, cabinets, shoes, floorboards…anything squeaky will likely put many on edge. WD-40 has built a billion-dollar industry on squeaks.

High-Pitched Laughing

Alright, we know laughing is good, healthy and even healing. But some people have such high-pitched laughs as to make them intolerable. You may not know who you are…but we do.

The EAS Test

This is the Emergency Activation System that radio, TV and Cable systems use to communicate about weather and other emergencies. The multi-tone signal is designed to activate alerts and notifications in its network. Its weekly and monthly tests, however, emit a sound that is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Fingernails on a Chalkboard

Thanks to whiteboards and digital screens, we will soon have a generation who does not know the agony of the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard. They will not know what they missed.

The Dentist Drill

If you’ve ever experienced the sound of a dentist’s drill on your teeth, no explanation is needed and one would be unnecessary.

It is one thing to be uncomfortable. It is another to suffer severe financial loss. Auto, home, life and business insurance is designed to protect you from these painful losses. Contact us for your no obligation insurance quote from our independent insurance agents today!
