What does her being pregnant have to do with anything?

^ I think OP is praying said pregnant lady swims in the fishbowl and will catch the subtle hint. As for help, I would've thrown a chair by now, OP. So you're already more patient than I.

OP, she's pregnant--not made of glass. Am sure she can handle a polite request to lose the gum, if it's really that loud. If she refuses, you have every right to ask for HR's help in getting her to see her gum-smacking isn't appropriate.

I mentioned she is pregnant because I'm actually serious about wanting to do something about this and don't want to confront her incase she gets upset or emotional ya know. She won't care that gum is bad for the baby she pops open a soda and fast food daily. I guess I'll just turn the music up higher

What’s your thought on a male colleague’s pursuit of spending more time with family given that (i) he’s in his twenties; (ii) he has a newly borne baby; (iii) his wife is a foreigner and does not have a salaried job. He decides to leave my current firm and if he does, his entire family will lose insurance. I personally found it very irresponsible but was told being wrong. So I want to know why I am wrong. This has bothered me for a while.
