I’m kind of embarassed to post this so I created a second account.
This is kind of stupid, but here goes. I wasn’t feeling well today at work and passed gas at my desk. It smelled pretty bad, but my neighbor thought it was another woman. I went into a friend’s cubicle to ask a question and I was told that the other woman had farted. They then said, “oh my gosh, the smell moved over here, I can smell it.” I think they figured out it was me.
Is it weird for me to be as embarassed as I am? If you were the girls who smelled it, would you think differently of me?

I wouldn’t everyone has passed gas in public before. Sometimes it just happens. My old boss right at the desk next to me. He just said sorry excuse me and went on like nothing happened.

I wouldn’t look at someone differently at all. Its natural, in happens, no biggie.

Honestly I would probably laugh, but that is it.

I would have a giggle and forget all about it 5 minutes later.

Not a big deal. You know that little kid book “Everyone Poops?” Apparently they’re coming out with an “Everyone Farts” book too. haha. One of my mom friends told me that the other day.

I think its so funny that girls are always worrying about “bad smells” and then the guys give high-fives for the smelliest fart!
I wouldn’t worry about it. I had to sit outside a CFO’s office and like clockwork every day after lunch and his walk he would be tooting in his office with no shame.
I wouldn’t think any less of you 🙂

I would have a giggle and send an email to my girlfriends saying “OMG someone totally farted” and that’s about it. I wouldn’t think any less of them, happens to everyone! In fact I think you should have a giggle and file this away to tell later as the story about the day you farted and everyone thought it was someone else 🙂

I’d be WAY more concerned about you passing out! Gas is nothing…but why did you pass out? That is not normal, even if you weren’t feeling well.
I’ guess if I were you I’d be glad gas is all that came out. Hope you feel better!!!

BTW, (just remembered this- shows you how important it was)
I was at a conference of women once. There were about 12 or so of us in one particular class. The woman leading it was someone we all knew by name- she was very well known in the organization we were in (thousands of women). She ran out of the room in the middle of the class. When she finally acme back she WREAKED. She had had a sudden bout of diarhea. She was so horrified, and told us that she had had rectal surgery to remove a tumor just a couple of weeks before and her dr. had warned her it could happen. She was so upset…and told us she only came back because she was so concerned that we would really worry about her.
All of the women in the room were SO understsanding. The poor thing! It could have happened to ANYONE. So could what happened to you.

@menobride: She passed Gas, not out hehe At first glance I also thought it read ‘passed out’

well my cube is next to the men’s bathroom and i hear lots of graphic poopy sounds all day, so i probably wouldn’t think twice about a little squeaky fart.
