Conducted by David Ormerod Hearing Centres, the survey, aimed at finding what drives the English mad, found that 51 per cent of Britons were most irritated by people who didnt hear their conversation.
The second place in the list of the nations top ten frustrations was grabbed by car alarms, followed by un-tuned radios, novelty ring tones and the sound of a baby crying.
The survey, also found that people were less likely to put up with a bad smell in the house, a toothache or a flickering television.
