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! 😉
