My entire life I’ve hated gum. Chewing gum. Bubble gum. All of it. Yuck!
Whenever I would bother my sisters, they would chew gum then put it on their finger and chase me with the gum.
I hate the sound of someone chewing gum. I hate the smell. I get very disgusted.
One day I was riding in the car with my friend. He accidentally cut off this woman and she was very mad.
She began tailgating us and laid on her horn.
This chase went on for a good minute.
She eventually caught up to us, rolled down her window, and threw a piece of chewed up gum at me.
I screamed so loud, (seriously, it was loud), that my friend who was driving thought the lady had pulled out a gun.
He thought it was hysterical, that I was deathly afraid of gum.I don’t know where I got this aversion to gum but I know I hate it.
Many people have a fear of dentistry.
When you ask these people where they developed their fear, usually they can’t recall where it originated. All they know is they hate going to the dentist.
