Difference between smoking or farting next to someone;)???

Ok, just for fun, what's the difference. I've always wondered. Even if you're a smoker, think about it. How does one feel when that little old lady goes by with her excrutiatingly strong perfume? You're left gasping for breath and hoping YOU don't smell like that after they walk away. I never have the right "ammo" to go stand next to someone smoking and just start passing gas... but I think it would be kinda funny.. I've experienced having to enhale they're toxic gases;) w/out my consent. Just wondered what their reaction would be to mine. Especially when you're at events where my children and I will be there for a while, it's an interesting situation.

I'd like to note that I never make a scene. Depending on the brand or something, sometimes we can stay and sometimes it's just too strong or the wind is blowing right at us.

  • i always politely say,
    "excuse me. could you shift over just a little bit? the wind is blowing your cancer in my face. thanks."
    they always do. Just don't be rude about it.

  • While both are unpleasant one is really bad for your health leading to possible disease although if you have allergies perfume can be quite harmful too!

  • Any one farting is just gross. I don't know why, but I always think "If they just would say excuse me when they do fart it might be better." But when you think about it, it doesn't lesson the smell one bit...

  • They're both unpleasant but smoking is just more socially acceptable. I don't know which is worse though, they're both gross.
