  • My Hubby does it as he's walking by me, then I look like the guilty one! lol I don't make an issue of it though, I have learned my lesson on that one!
    btw, yes it's rude and gross!!!

  • Not really sure if it's rude, but it can really be gross. I think it also depends on where you are.

  • YES! And so embarassing! I could just die. I walk away real fast and hope nobody knows it was me. Ewwww.

  • Yes, if it is intentional.. kindly excuse yourself to the restroom!
    If it is an accident, it is not rude if you say "excuse me."

  • yeah, I'm sure it is, but sometimes you just can't help it. I hate it when it happens at work! LOL! I let a really nasty one and right after that my boss walked right through it.. She didn't say anything though. I hope she didn't notice it.

  • It is bad manners, but I still do it, as do many other people I know.

  • Yep it's very rude and it's not fair to the other patrons! It bothers me because whenever somebody farts in public I always find myself in it. Ugh! Now everybody thinks I did it. I could run, but then I will look even more guilty so I hold my breath and slowly walk away in hopes of not stirring someone elses fart. Ewwww..It's reasons like these that make me feel better about being a homebody.

  • how can you STOP it?! thats what i dont udnerstand...people think its rude but for some people you dont know its coming till its too late...some people actually have a condition that makes it IMPOSSIBLE to hold it back, and they are probably as embarrased having it happen as the people having to smell i dont consider it bad manners...
