Rachel Moore on the noise nuisance in cinema...
High up and rising in the ever-shifting league of life's irritants are the mature adults who can't manage a 90-minute film in a cinema without noisily munching sweets and snacks.
Rustling, tearing and shaking sharing-sized sweet packets when others are trying to follow a film centimetres away is selfish and inconsiderate.
It's also a bit pathetic that grown-ups need sweets like a baby needs a dummy.
But it's the noise they make with their giant bags that really galls.
