The Quiet Sipper v. The Loud Sipper
There we are enjoying a meal and sipping our favorite cocktail with friends, when out of the blue there is that unmistakable sound. The ear-piercing sound of someone who is having difficult consuming their beverage without the whole world hearing. Yes, we have all been in those situations when all we really want to do is ask someone to drink softer or slower for that matter!
Are you a loud sipper? Do you tend to attack your beverage? Whether it's a glass of wine, a cup of coffee or a glass of soda? Many time people have no idea that their loud drinking habits are irritating the person next to them. We are always worried about which fork to use or whether we are cutting our meat correctly, but slurping a glass of wine can be just as rude as chewing with your mouth open.
So take a moment the next time you are enjoying that frothy latte or intoxicating skinny martini to notice if you are one of those people who are making others cringe. Remember that change only comes from within yourself. Become the change and it will spread to others.
