Does anyone else get shivers when they file their nails?

Asked by arnbev959 (10906points) May 28th, 2008

Whenever I file my nails or even hear the sound of someone else filing their nails a weird tingling shiver runs up my spine and through my body. Does this happen to anyone else? Why does it happen?

YES! I hate that feeling. Not sure why it happens, but it has the same affect as the nails running down the chalk board.

as soon as I read your question, I got the shiver down my spine. I don’t file my nails just because I get that horrible feeling just from the thought! Nail clippers all the way!!

I’ve never used a file and never will. Anytime I hear that sound, I shiver an wince in pain. Its horriable. Files should be destroyed!

Hahhaha this is crazy that you asked this question. I was just arguing about this with my mother the other day. We were having a discussion and she randomly started to file her nails. I was aghast ! I felt like the blood was draining away from my face lol. I finally couldn’t take it and yelled “STOP IT STOP THAT NOISE”, and she looked at me TOTALLY clueless. She was like “what noise??”. She couldn’t hear it….....and I couldn’t believe that, so I kept going “sshhh listen…....!” But she just looked at me like I was crazy. One more reason for her to think I am a nut job haha.

I can’t stand the sound of packing peanuts rubbing together, either (or any similar material). Same effect.

No, but I do get the shivers when I hear the flaps on corrugated cardboard boxes rubbing against each other.
