The rustle of newspapers never used to be annoying to me even though I could still hear them. However, I didn’t hear with quite the crispness I now hear as a result of access to the higher frequencies – and now the sound is so annoying! 😉
I remember at some point in school, I would rustle my school papers and not think they were creating an annoying sound. However, they annoyed people in the classroom, but I always thought that was because some people were more sensitive to sound.
That’s funny to think back to!
Sorry to all those that I annoyed with shaking papers, etc. I now understand your pain! 😉
