EllyAnne :  LOL well no farting and burping aren’t supposed to be funny. If they are meant to be funny, it’s crude.

I understand that sometimes things happen unexpectedly, but I was always taught to excuse myself when that happens. Likewise, as others have said, there is no reason a person usually has to burp loudly. Many burps can be expelled like a breath, with no noise whatsoever. And unless there’s a medical condition making holding it impossible, it IS rude to pass gas in public. “Natural” or not, it is rude.

I’ve seen and heard this more often, too. It’s unfortunate. But I can tell you for sure that if my date ever belched loudly and laughed about it (as I’ve seen happen) in a movie theater or whi;e out to dinner with me, I’d be finding my own ride home and he’d never see me again.

I’ve been taught in school not to burp/fart in public (and if you do, excuse yourself at the very least). And to this day, I am still forever thankful to that one teacher who taught me these basic manners. I find it rude and gross whenever someone farts or burps in public. Some of my very close relatives used to burp all the time whenever s/he enters my room and it annoys me so. damn. much. Like, why couldn’t you burp before entering my room?! You can fart/burp discreetly, but when you do it all the freaking time when you very obviously could control/hide it, you’re just plain gross lol. Same with picking your nose *facepalm*

gatsbymermaid :  I’m sure everyone has accidentally dropped a burp or fart in public before so I don’t judge if it happens. When people let it rip on purpose then I do give them a side eye.

My grandfather was hearing impaired in his old age and had digestive issues. Poor guy must of thought he was a brilliant stealth farter because he couldn’t hear his own farts. We never said anything because he would have been so embarrassed if he knew he was actually making noise and everyone but him heard it. 😂

***also are you sure you are not being played and end up on a YouTube video with those people that fake burp and fart in public to film reactions.

gatsbymermaid :  It’s just gross isn’t it!  I sit opposite a man at work who burps and it makes me want to punch him! It’s horrible, especially when I am eating.

I don’t think it is appropriate to do on purpose while out in public, but I understand that sometimes it happens accidentally and that’s ok! I know I personally have a lot of GI issues, and though I never burp or pass gas in public, I can see how maybe for someone who does have medical issues like me, it could be hard or even painful to not release it.

I’m the kind of person that would rather someone burp or fart in front of me instead of holding it in and making them uncomfortable. Why should my comfort be any more important than theirs? I would genuinely feel bad if someone was holding in gas uncomfortably because I was there. I would want them to make themselves feel better 🤷🏼‍♀️

The body just functions this way. I agree. You don’t have to force this stuff out. Cover your mouth if you burp. But I am not going to be in pain because Becky in the next aisle over doesn’t like my fart or my burp. It’s uncomfortable to hold it in. Bodies are gross. Its just the way it is.

Sometimes these things are controllable but you’ll never know if someone has disgestive issues or isn’t feeling well so overall, it’s best not to judge and not be overly sensitive about it. I think it’s even more rude to give them looks or call someone disgusting when they might be ill.

gatsbymermaid :  I’m a lot less appalled after some friends & family were diagnosed with IBS and other gastro issues. Some people really can’t help it. Even if it’s a stranger, I give them benefit of the doubt and assume they’re doing the best they can to not impact others. If it’s super gross I still cringe inwardly but I wouldn’t say anything or make someone feel bad because there’s a good chance they already do.

 I agree with the other posters that it’s a normal bodily function . However,  peeing and pooping are too and you don’t see anyone squatting in the supermarket aisle. Yuk. Have a little class I say, and take it to a private place.  I don’t want to hear or  your gasses.

The practice of talking through burps gets me. For crying out loud, just turn your face away keep your mouth closed or at least mostly closed, burp and then turn back to me. Just politely excuse yourself and then carry on talking. I do not want your stomach gas in my face!

Well everyone sounds very grown up. I don’t much like burps, , but the odd involutary fart is sometimes quite funny.  If it’s not mine, that is .
