My female co-worker burps alllll…day.
Honestly, no exaggeration, at least 20 times a day. Out loud. She doesn’t even try to muffle it. And then she says after every time “oh! Excuse moi.” in a French accent. She’s Indian. The French accent doesn’t make it less gross.
It’s disgusting. No one hears it but me because we are the only 2 in our office! And sometimes, she even passes gas. Lucky me.

Sounds like one of the attorneys I used to work for. Except he is a guy. But he would burp all the time and pass gas. It was terrible.
He never even said excuse me.

Ermahgerd. I can totally join in on this thread.
Work in an office of 4 —
Male attorney talks on his cell phone in the bathroom, flushing noises and ALL.
Part time secretary I work with has digestive issues and while I sympathize her getting up and RUNNING to the bathroom and then telling me about it after…. ICK!

I currently live in the passive aggressive state of MN… bring in a thing of Febreeze or other air freshner. And spray it every time she does it and say, “Gross.” lol

I work in a cube farm so there’s everything from loud smacking at all hours to fingernail clipping, constant sneezing/burping/farting/loud yawning to the incredible smells of 5 microwaves running at once with last nights leftover tilapia. I have learned to just stop listening and trying not to smell things

@Mrs_Amanda: OMG. that’s INSANE!!! I HATE the smell of microwaved seafood!

@Sunshine09: I had a coworker who did the EXACT same thing. Loudly, constantly, gutturally. She kind of owned it though, she wouldn’t try to hide it and she always excused herself. She had GERD and after a while, I got used to it. She kept saying “hey, if I hold them in, they’ll come out the other end” so…thank you, I guess?
I also had a co worker who ate sardines for breakfast. She would open them up in the break room, put them on bread, and leave the oily, unrinsed container on the top of the trash can. It was so disgusting that someone finally contacted the hospital (i worked in a non-clinical area of a hospital) environmental safety people who asked her to not eat them any more…citing possible fish allergies of other coworkers.
Seriously. Sardines at 6:45 in the morning??

Gross and rude!! You should talk to her about it.

@howtobeawife: I would do something far more dramatic. Have a trash can and just VOMIT. That will make everyone sick. “Oops I’m sorry. It’s just the smell.. you know..”

Darling Husband burps a lot and it really bothered me.
Now that I am pregnant I have to burp… constantly. I can’t help it, my digestion went wild. Is she expecting? Or she just thinks it is cute? Maybe she can’t help it…

I work in a small area and we have two very large ladies who gross everyone out. they both spend hours a day in the bathroom, one hardly showers and has #2 on her clothes in the bathroom. the other has had gastric bypass and is a diabetic but you couldn’t tell by the way she eats anything and drinks diet pop all day. she constantly farts at her desk and has even #2 in her pants also. we have developed a roach problem in our office b/c these two “ladies” hoard food in their cabinets. it’s really nasty and none of our management seem to care. i work in a highly recognized company too and we have began calling ourself, the “island of misfit toys.” nobody wants to work here.

that’s absolutely disgusting. the only gross-ness i’ve had to deal with is bad breath, but i’ve had to deal with lots of “annoying” habits.
