despicable sounds

One of my favorite scenes from the animated film “Despicable Me” is the exchange between the not-so-tough villain and his irrepressible victim Agnes. Her badgering him with the “Does this count as annoying?” phrase has me thinking the script writer had personal experience with one or more small Agnes-alikes. See if you agree

That exchange entered my brain when I spotted this on the Smithsonian website: what-is-the-most-annoying-sound-in-the-world

This piece not only gives you a list of disagreeable-to-despicable sounds, it gives you a listen. And while I still find the fingernails on the blackboard right there at the top, this is one vote I’m willing to lose.
But I’d truly like to know: what sound sets your teeth on edge, your nerves on tilt and your brain scrambling for the door?
