This has got to be one of my all time biggest pet peeves as they say, people chewing gum!
I will tell you right up front, it’s disgusting and it makes you look bad.
Let me break it down, you look like a cow when you chew gum, yes, a cow. It does nothing to enhance your image in any way, shape or form. Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror when you are chewing gum? If not, you should, and brace yourself, it’s not pretty 😉
In fact, the other day I was shopping and noticed a mother and daughter together from the back, the mother was very nicely dressed, the daughter as well. And then they turned around, both of them chewing gum, ruined their whole look. And I’m sure they had no idea.
I don’t even get what people get out of chewing gum? If it’s to keep your breath fresh (which I totally understand), there are mints, a toothbrush and toothpaste, mouthwash, peppermint leaves, certain oils and many other options. If you tell me it’s to curb your appetite, I would say, find another option. To not smoke, ditto.
And, how about if you’re on a date and you want to kiss someone, how does that work if you have gum in your mouth? See, there’s just no upside to it from where I see it.
Ever had a conversation with someone and they are chewing gum, and all you can do is look at their mouth, not even listening to what they are saying? And in your head you’re saying, ‘I wonder if they realize they look like a cow chewing grass?’
And then there’s the other issue of people who chew gum, once they are done with it, they dispose of it in all the wrong places. How many times have you stepped on a piece of gum? And don’t even look under tables at restaurants, gross! It shows up everywhere.
If you don’t care how you look to the world, keep chewing away. But if you do care, toss the gum!
