cell phones, kids
Anything that makes a noise - crunchy foods, rattly wrappers, slurpy drinks and so on. They could leave their appetite for junk food at home.
Any food that has a strong odor.
Their buddies who they cannot resist talking to.
Their obnoxious laughter
Big hair-dos
Little kids to R rated movies

Overactive hormones (we came to watch the movie, not you making out - or worse)
