How disgusting is farting in public?
Have you ever had the odd experience of someone either close to you, or in a public place or public transportation fart whether knowingly or unknowingly?

Sometimes, people don't really have control over when such happens while some are forced into such situations because of what they ate which isn't good for their stomach.

How do you feel when such happens? Do you get aggressive in cautioning the culprit or just ignore the person?

I know how it feels when you fart in public. So, I choose to ignore when that things happen. I don't want to be humiliated and I don't want others to be humiliated too. I remember a friend of mine, everytime she felt she is going to fart and there are people around her, she will run all of a sudden to a place where she can fart.

Well, that's a ctually a good act for her. I know people who just wants to fart in public and just let people know because they just want to be real. But, what they fail to see is how it stinks and how the smells affect the vibe of the people.

Hahahaha ruining the air as we call it around here for the people that are near you is always disrespectful since you can never predict the level of foulness that the smell will reach once the gas is out of your system.

Farts can be embarrassing. It is not hood to embarrass other people then. Just ignore

True when someone has done it near you it is possible that they might have some limited control and they just have to let it out.

when one is burdened by the gas in their system sometimes the best way to let go is just release and just like that some pressure is eased and you are free to go about with your day. However, doing so in public is always disrespectful of those that are around.

Oh no, it's really embarrassing if you fart in public places, especially when there's a sound and when it stinks. Sometimes, I fart when I know it's just sair and I make sure that no one noticed it by distancing myself a little bit. Haha

Farting is normally louder if one tries to compress it. Usually, it forces itself out, rubbing at the sides and producing lid sounds. Quite embarrassing.

Hahahahaha. This is a trick that always works when you want to get yourself out of the blame zone. The one big embarrassment is when the fart makes a huge or uncontrollable bad noise. This notifies the people around you that you are the one who did it and you can never be out of the blame.

I think it can be unhealthy for both the person and the reception end of the people. Farting goes to show that the person has a stomach issues. And he is kind of in a pain of some sort. And he needs to take care of the health. Another thing is that farting some of the time can be bad for the people around no matter how smell is strong there as well.

I heard somewhere that fart can actually ignite if you set it ablaze. Do not try it lest you burn your behind.

Does it really mean that you have a problem with your health and the digestive system for that matter. It seems to be a natural way of getting rid of excessive gas especially after the metabolism so one has to get rid of it one way or another.

Holding in your farts isn't good for you. It is a naturally insurance. That's be like telling someone they're not allowed to sneeze in public. And ginestly, sneezing spreads a lot more germs than a fart ever will. But for some reason people say sneezing is cute and farting is disgusting. Society is confusing.

Sneezes do not smell but fart smell bad. People should desist from farting in public. Maybe if they are pressed much.

Hahahaha, that point over there about sneezes has hit the nail on the head. It is always about the norms that have become acceptable in the society over time and people have normalized them even without considering the effects.

This topic made me laugh! It is gross when you get a whiff of something that smells like someone pooped themselves in public. I do think that adults should have some degree of foresight and not need to do that in a public place. Sure, if you’re sick that might be a different story but should you be out in public places if that’s the case?

It is a disgusting. But, at the same time, it is a natural phenomenon. That moment when the foul smell emits and the people around you feel uncomfortable is just unbearable. I try to control my farts most of the times or atleast hold them for a time and let them out when no one is around.

I usually just ignore the person, hoping they did it because they really couldn't control it anymore, and not just because. Farting is quite disrespectful, especially if it is loud and smelly.

When in need to fart, you could always excuse yourself and go far away to let it out. That has been the practise of many people I know. In this case, farting has been considered irresponsible and disrespectful. Especially knowing how much of a stench it makes. It would be torture to do that in a crowded room. So it is better to hold it in until you get the opportunity to be far and in an open space to let it goo...

I ignore it. What can I do? If someone farted, it already happened. What can I do? The best thing to do in such unpleasant situation is to ignore the person that did that. They probably did that unintentionally. People are often ashamed when they fart in public so the best thing to do here is to simply ignore it. That is the best thing to do- ignore it. But if I saw someone who intentionally farted, I would be very angry at him/her.

Yes, it is really disgusting. You can do it in private but please not in public. It's very unethical. I get annoyed with people like this who would fart in public. It's not funny at all.
