Can you hear me now?

After much thought and self evaluation, I've come to a major conclusion: I am loud.

Nothing I seem to do is ever quiet.

I talk loud. I sneeze loud. I blow my nose extremely loud. I type loud. I answer the phone loud. I even walk loud. I put my heels down first then my toes which makes this pounding noise when you run upstairs and makes a loud clicking noise in heels. (My mom does the same thing so it must be genetic.)

I even manage to put things away loudly. Every morning, when I'm trying really hard to be quiet and not wake the BF up, I seem to knock something over. EVERYTIME.

If I'm putting away the tooth paste, I accidentally hit the deodorant which falls, knocking over my face lotion that creates this domino effect of noise in my cabinet. It's even worse when you accidentally cause this domino effect and it sends your new perfume flying and crashing onto the bathroom floor.

Glass + falling fast + tile floor don't mix well. At all.

WTF! How is that possible? Or, I open the bathroom door which is so close to the flat iron cord, pulling it off the counter because the cord gets stuck on the door stopper and it sends the flat iron crashing onto the tile floor. (If you want to purchase one more often, keep doing this because pretty soon the paddles will come out. Chi loves my clumsiness.)

I'm a klutz or as the BF says, a bull in a china shop. He sometimes lovingly refers to me as Sammy the bull.

The Lady Friend is the EXACT same way. I think girls have so much to do to get ready that they get in a huge hurry and it forces them to lose all motor skills. Even opening and shutting doors is louder. It is part of your chromosome.

Oh yes, I also slam doors and cupboards too.

Oooh, I too am a genetic stomper. This is something that really used to bother me, since my mother did it growing up and it was irritating, but I've come to embrace it...after all.

I'm loud and klutzy, too. I don't know why, it's not intentional! My sister says I even chew loudly... and my mom calls me Grace, for my lack of it.

Ashley - me too. I used to get so annoyed with my mom and her stomping.

PomJob - me neither. I just keep knocking things over.

People often tell me that they knew I was coming to their office because they heard me walking. On carpet. Awesome. So much for 11+ years of ballet. Still not light on my feet, I guess.

this made me laugh because my boyfriend is the "bull in the china shop" in our relationship. And I always call him that! Seriously - he scares people when he sneezes and neighbors must think there is an earthquake when he stomps down the stairs.

I'm a heel stomper too...Big Man is always like: Why can't you just walk soft like other girls???

I have no idea why I do it, I just do.

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem...

Nice work 'Sammy'... I'm proud of you!

I'm glad I'm not only one but I think in my case it's because I'm deaf. When I don't have my hearing aid or cochlear implant on I'm EXTREMELY loud (according to the Hubby & family).

I am loud too. I can be quiet when getting ready but my upstairs neighbor is super loud. She can't even pee quietly. And I know this because I hear it!!!

Smash said...

I am a very loud person too! It used to embarrass me, but now I embrace it :) My laugh is extremely loud in particular.

Loud is the new black.

And I think whenever you TRY to be quiet, you tend to just knock everything over and make a crazy loud mess.
