    Farting in Public

    So today, I was in the library rushing to complete a paper and there was this guy on the computer beside me. Out of the corners of my eyes I saw him move as if he was just stretching, and then it happened, the loudest fart I have ever heard in awhile. He had his earphones in so I assume he didn't realize just how loud it was. I was a bit shocked, because I have never heard someone fart so loudly in the public.

    Have you ever farted in public? Do you think there is anything wrong with farting in the public?

    PS. I cringe everything I have to type fart, it is such a vulgar word to me.

    Hi Shanz,


    HaHaHaHa, This got me laughing but it was really disgusting. I don't blame you for being shocked because I would've been shocked if someone farted loud next to me and it could bring so much attention to the two of you. I've never farted in public because that's disrespectful and nasty. I would feel embarrassed if Ii did by accident which is why I always try to go outside where there is no one to pass gas. While I'm sitting, I would hold it really tight so it would get it lol. Wow, I feel so weird talking about gases and I'm sorry he did that near you.

    Thanks for the forum and have a great day!

    Hi, ha ha that reminds me of the commercial where an older person has headphones on listening to music and had to fart, so thought he would fart to the sound of the music; but he forgot that no one else could hear the music and so he was farting away to the rhythm when he looked around and realized everyone was staring at him!

    Hey Shanz!

    I've farted very loud in public, but only in areas where no one is. I think there's a time and place to fart, especially around certain areas, but I don't think it's awful if it's by accident. If it's intentional and you're trying to stink up the place, then yes, farting is not okay.

    Funny story: I was walking out of lab around 6 PM on a Friday (everyone is usually off campus by this time) and I had my headphones in and I started letting out a lot of gas. I turn around after I let it all out, and I realize someone's been walking behind me the entire time! I was so embarrassed and I ran straight to my car and drove off hahaha.

    Hey Shanz,

    I don’t believe I’ve farted very loudly in public. I try to avoid it all together, even in front of my girlfriend. It’s just something I was raised believing but at the same time, I obviously understand it’s a human function and don’t judge anyone for doing it.

    Like previously stated, there’s a time and a place. There’s also accidental and indifferent/intentional. If you’re inconsiderate doing it, that’s the only time it bothers me.

    Hey Shanz,

    Hahahahaha, wow okay that guy was very comfortable in public. Unless it was an accident. The tragic news for me is that I physically cannot fart loud. Don't get me wrong, I fart, I just can't do it loud. Burping on the other hand, that's my jam. I'm freaking awesome at it and, yes, I do it in public. I don't think there's anything wrong with either, aside from being culturally/socially unacceptable. Personally I don't see a problem with it.
    When I burp loud, my brother tells me, "This is why we can't take you nice places."
    So there's that.

    Shanz,
    This is hilarious! What kills me is that my husband has taught my 2 year old daughter to think farting is funny, so if we are out at a store, she will stop and say "mommy" and then fart really loud and laugh. It's so funny and obviously I don't want her to hold it in and hurt her tummy, so I roll with it and hope that I can teach her relatively soon to not fart "loudly" in public.


    Thanks!

    Re: Farting in Public

    This post is so hysterical in general for the concept but more specifically because all day I've been listening to one of my co-workers yell at the person in the office with her: "Jeremy stop farting!"

    Everyone farts in public, it's not possible to hold in gas all day. Especially if you have an upset stomach. It's best to be courteous about it and maybe go outside or stay in your seat for a few minutes after you pass gas but it's definitely not good for you to just clench your cheeks all day and deny your body it's natural processes.

    Re: Farting in Public

    Hey Shanz,

    I don't think it was appropriate for the guy to do it next to you. I mean he could have gotten up and went to the bathroom. I either go to the bathroom or step outside when I have to pass gas. I mean its natural thing so if someone does hear, it they shouldn't be offended. Burping is also natural and shouldn't be associated as wrong to do in public. I mean there is certain places and times to do these things but if there is a slip up we shouldn't think anything about it.

    Thanks,
