Fiance and I have quite a few arguements about manners. I’m a stickler for manners, and he’s uh….not, to say the least. He feels that you don’t have to say excuse me after a burp, especially at home, and I feel you say it after every burp, home or not. To me, it’s like saying “you’re welcome” after someone says “thank you”. It doesn’t matter where you are, you still say it.
My question is, does your SO say excuse me after burps? If so, is it all the time, or just in publlc?

@Mrs. Bear Cheese Pie: I don’t think he does… and I don’t either, lol., but I think we both would if it were in public!

Always in public, sometimes at home. I always excuse myself personally because I believe in manners the same way you do, but I’m not going to project them onto my husband. He gets to decide what level of conduct is right for him.

At home no, he doesn’t because I don’t really see burping as a bad thing or a breach of household manners. In public I’m sure he would.

One of my exes burped all the time because he thought it was hilarious (yes, he was SO mature) and he would never say excuse me.
When Fiance burped in front of me the first time, he didn’t say excuse me and I let him know that I’d appreciate if he did and he’s said it pretty much every time since then. I think it’s gotten automatic for him now.

No, he hums. That’s right, he turns it into a “song”. I think it’s a riot and it makes me laugh every time. But if he’s in public or around someone with actual manners, he’ll say excuse me.

I have no idea. I know that Darling Husband never burps in public. If he burps at home, I dont care whether he excuses himself or not…he is HOME 😀 But, I would say he probably does, I will have ot pay attention next time LOL

I put ‘other.’ Fiance is a special guy…when we first started dating he brought up that when you burp, it often smells like the last thing you ate or drank. He said he thinks it’s rude to make other people smell it, so after he burps he blows the burp away from others (kind of like blowing away smoke.) If we’re in public, he’ll try to hide it. Now I’ve picked up on the habbit and we both think it’s very rude when people don’t “blow it away.”

Update: Fiance just burped and immediately goes “Much love” and I laughed and he goes “oh, excuse me” causing me to laugh all over again.

It is mandatory, to be in my presence, (for my Darling Husband to say excuse me) so he does NOW, but I had to TRAIN him to do it. Sometimes I still have to remind him. He used to burp and talk (hides face with hands in horror!).
He knows now that is never ever acceptable.

Always in public/with family, but only sometimes at home (with just us)!

It is funny, because I don’t mind farts, picking noses, or other things at home but for whatever reason… his burping I cannot take!

he never says excuse me. instead, he says something along the lines of “yeah baby!” in an attempt to be funny. It sometimes is, actually 🙂 . Men, and their fascination with bodily emissions…..

Somehow we fell into the routine of me saying “Bless you” when Fiance burps, to which he responds “You’re welcome”. Even we can’t figure out how it started but it’s tradition for us now – the ‘excuse me’ is implied.
He tries to mind his manners in public, but occasionally we get caught having our weird post burp exchange.
