Why do people suck on there teeth........?

Why do people suck on there teeth after they eat? Can they still taste there food? Do they think it is some form of cleaning the teeth after eating?
All I know is it drives me crazy!!!! Around this time everyday. there are 2 guys that sit pretty close to me in the office that do this for probably about an hour each day.
Maybe its an age thing. Both of these guys are over 50. Oh, and my GF's mother does it also. As if she doesn't already annoy me enough.
Can anyone enlighten me on this matter?

I've found myself doing this unconsciously before when I had something stuck in my front teeth. I just started carrying floss around with me to work.

The only time I find myself doing this, after raspberries.... damn seeds. But I agree it is a VERY annoying habit a lot of people have.

I don't believe I do it. But people do it to get food out of in-between their teeth.

Re: Why do people suck on there teeth........?

How is that full of win lol? I mean, all I did was answer a useless question with another useless question. If you want to go there though; I didn't realize that this was an etiquette forum? People that suck on your teeth drive you crazy? Well people that mess up "there/they're/their" or "your/you're" drive me crazy.

PS, I didn't say you spelled it wrong (you spelled the word correctly actually)...I said you used incorrect forms of that word. So your misspelling sarcasm is full of fail technically (aside from the obvious). Although, I guess I'm now arguing with someone who fails to comprehend/implement something simple that is taught in middle school.
