The most annoying noise in the world

It emanates from my kitchen.

It happens when a bowl or plate kept in the sink gradually accumulates water from the drops that keep leaking in through the tap.

It sounds like this:

PLOP

I've finally hit upon a permanent solution to the problem: I'll cut off water supply to my home.
