Why am I completely unable to stand the sound of someone chewing gum?

I do not find the act itself repulsive and am not particularly squeamish, but the sound makes me want to get up and leave the room. I can handle other icky/biological sights and sounds perfectly fine.
Is there any explanation for this? Bonus points for answers that will help me avoid punching people around me in the face over this.
