I’m so terribly sorry about this! It sucks bad, but try and tell yourself that every single person in that room farts too! And I’d bet they’ve farted in front of people at some point in their lives as well. The best thing you can do I think is act as if it never happened, and resume your good work ethic. Methane doesn’t make you a bad employee, and I highly doubt your coworkers think that way. 

Revisit this post in about 5 months, and hopefully it will be funny to you.

Oh man, that’s rough. I say take up drinking. Laughing Pray for an office scandal? IDK, the embarassment will pass with time.

OMG I am sorry, hopefully they all behave like adults and forget about it.

Oh wow, I’m cringing for you. I’m SO sorry that happened! I agree with JulesSchnooks – this will not seem like nearly as big a deal once a little time passes. Keep your head up and remember everyone has been there and this will pass and be history before you know it.

@ticatica:  Maybe plant some false evidence of something scandalous, and people will have something else to chatter about. But seriously, I wouldn’t worry too much. The classy thing to do is not talk about it (be it the farter, or the fart-hearer), and I bet your coworkers are classy people.

Oh you poor girl!  This is a fear of mine ๐Ÿ™  I say a few drinks after work are definitely warranted!

LOL! I’m sorry, but this just made me burst out laughing. I’m not laughing at you….I’m laughing with you? ๐Ÿ™‚ I think your best bet is to just put it behind you. While somebody might not out-fart you tomorrow (tee hee!) this WILL pass, and you’ll be able to look back and laugh about it!

The same thing actually happened to me in a course that I was taking. The room was silent, and I don’t know where on Earth the gas came from, but the loudest, highest pitched toot ever somehow escaped my body! I was so embarrassed I started to giggle uncontrollably and the poor guy sitting beside me must have been mortified for me, because HE turned bright red. After class, I talked to my friend and she thought that he did it because he was so red! Ahh, too funny. Don’t worry—this too shall pass! If it makes you feel better, you made me giggle ๐Ÿ˜€

I would have giggled, because I am immature like that.

You will be fine, don’t worry. I am sure they will forget about it.

Although one time I had my friends over for poker… I don’t remember what I said that was so funny, but apparently it was funny enough to make my girl friend laugh extremely hard and fart in front of everyone. Even some new people that I just introduced to her! We all laughed though and then she started laughing some more. Yeah… we are classy… but I still remember that night…

I could NOT contain a giggle when I got to the “out-fart” line.  But seriously, they’ll all forget about it long before you do.  Act totally cool at work tomorrow.  If you act awkwardly, they’ll feel awkward.  Don’t look the least bit shy, pretend you already forgot.

Oh, this makes me sad for you! As someone with a precarious stomach I totally know! At our engagement dinner, with my family and FI’s family, I farted during dinner while laughing and chatting. I was sitting beside Future Mother-In-Law. I was mortified!!!! 

Its not the end of the world- it’ll blow over.

I think all you can really do is laugh about it yourself before anyone else laughs at you.  If you laugh it off, then people will forget about it in a day or two and move on; if you get sensitive about it, then people will never let it die.

One of my co-workers forgot his phone wasn’t muted during a conference call with like 60 people… and flushed the toilet!!! D’oh!

@fishbone:  At least it was a conference call and the toilet flush is anonymous. ๐Ÿ™‚
