steny03 :  agreed! It’s a lot of natural bodly functions that, if you can help it, should be done in a more respectable descreet manner. Just because it’s natural does NOT mean it should be done so openly. I feel that we should be taught those clean habits at a young age, I was. Sneezing and coughing are natural too, but in order to prevent the spread of disease and germs they should be done in a safe/clean manner.

steny03 :  Completely agree!

I’m a physical therapist and I’ve had a lot of patients accidentally fart when doing therapy.  I’ve also had a lot of patients not try to hold it back and have no problem blasting the entire session.  Those are the people that annoy me.

I’m not quite as offending by belching but I still give people the side eye when I hear them do it on purpose.  Just because they’re natural functions does not mean others should be subject to smell your shit.

gatsbymermaid :  I know this post is 8 months old and has recently been revived; however, if I were in a public place and someone ripped a loud, obnoxious, unapologetic fart—I would probably piss myself from laughing. Just the sheer nerve to do such a thing is hilariously comical to me lol

happiekrappie :  I actually first heard that term when I released a SBD (that’s “silent but deadly” for you prudes!!) at a party and someone yelled “who ripped ass?!” πŸ˜‰

gatsbymermaid :  I only judge when people don’t say excuse me after. I work in the medical field and I understand that sometimes people have illnesses that don’t allow for them to have the time to find a more discrete place to break wind or burp.

Surprise bodily functions sometimes just happen to the best of us. I’m sure most people here have had a situation where something they ate repeated on them or where you’ve bent over to pick something up and the action has caused pressure on your bowels and a fart you didn’t know you had to do just escapes. πŸ’¨

burping im ok with in moderation, in some cultures its even polite to burp and apart from a quick sound (similar to a hiccup or sneeze) it doesnt subject anyone to anything (well my fiances does but he the only person I’ve known to emit a smell, possibly due to his reflux).

farting is different, I dont need or want to smell the inside of anyones ass (more akin to taking a dump) so if everyone else can control it then you are expected to too (unless your physically incontinent).

And just fyi….farting is hilarious. Of course, you know, don’t let them rip at a funeral or a wedding. And not in a car…or small spaces. Like PP said I don’t want to smell your insides. But, at the end of the day, farting is hilarious. I always laugh at farts. And if you don’t think they’re funny…get the stick out of your ass. No pun intended.

I was in the bank once when a woman soiled  herself, then proceeded to shake a chunk of poo out of her pant leg, so I’m unphased by gas in public now.
