I’m disgusted by my co-worker’s noises

DEAR ABBY: I have a colleague with whom I share an office. We are cordial, but not friends.

The problem is that most of the day she chews gum with her mouth open, and occasionally she lets it go. The noises she makes are extremely disturbing and disgust me. I’ve started wearing headphones and listening to music as often as possible to muffle her sounds, but it feels a bit rude and isn’t practical for all day.

I’m about to snap at her. Is there a friendly way I can alert her to the problem without disrupting our working relationship?


BEST POP: Have a nice chat with this colleague and ask her to let you know when she’s going to take a piece of gum so you can put on your headphones. It’s better than letting your cork pop out in frustration.
