Farting EtiquetteIt's becoming increasingly clear that there are a lot of men
(and maybe some women, although I've never experienced it) who are unfamiliar
with the etiquette of farting. Most men are repeat offenders when it comes to
such transgressions. I've seen (heard? smelled?) men farting in grocery stores,
in elevators, on the street, etc. It needs to stop.
Here are THE RULES of
farting etiquette for those of you who are still unsure:
STRANGERS or IN PUBLIC PLACES
There is no farting allowed. You will hold your
fart in until you locate a public restroom and enter a closed stall. You may not
fart in the main lobby of the restroom.
If you should be suddenly seized
by a painful urge to fart that forces you to lose control of your will regarding
the matter, you must apologize embarrassedly and profusely to all those around
you who might have been offended.
If you should be suddenly seized by a
painful urge to fart that nearly forces you to do so, but not quite, you may try
to get as far away from any people that might be nearby and *try* your best to
squeeze out the minimum amount of air that will buy you time until you can make
it to a rest room.
2. AMONGST CO-WORKERS or CASUAL
Again, there is no farting allowed. All the rules of #1 apply,
except more strongly because these are people you will usually have to be with
again. You don't want them to form an unsavory opinion of you. If you fart in
front of one (or more) of them, all but the most open-minded of them will always
see you as Fartman in the future... Especially the women.
You may fart under certain circumstances.
First of all, you must
know your friend's stance on farting in general. For some people there is no
farting allowed in their presence at any time. If you are close enough to this
friend to know that farting is seen more as a humorous thing than a shameful or
repulsive act, then cautious farting is acceptable.
circumstances you must make sure you are well away from your friend, at least as
far away as the length of your sofa, but farther if possible. You must make sure
that the mood is right for farting. Farting can be seen as disrespectful if you
do it while there is a serious or somber air in the room. The mood must be
light-hearted and pleasant. You want to make sure that conditions are favorable
for farting. After you fart, you might want to gauge whether your friend(s) was
offended or amused by your gaseous emission and either respond with an apology
or a joke/laugh.
If you don't know your friend well enough to understand
their full fart belief system, act accordingly with #1 and #2.
This all depends on your family. In some families farting is frowned
upon as a filthy and shameful habit. Some families can't even bring themselves
to utter the word "fart". In other families farting is great fun and a source of
many family jokes and much laughter. Only you know for sure which category your
family falls into. Please don't try to shock your dear mother by intentionally
going against family fart policy.
5. AMONGST LOVERS and OTHER INTIMATE
Usually you may fart while in the presence of your very closest and
intimate friends and lovers. These people love you and will not stop loving you
over some noxious hinal emissions. Usually. There are strict rules for such
farting, however, and these rules can make or break a relationship.
you must never fart while having a serious discussion of any kind. I don't care
if it's a discussion about bills, weekend plans, your sex life, etc. It's
disrespectful to interrupt such conversations with a fart.
You must also
never fart during a moment of tenderness. Sweet talk, billing and cooing,
foreplay, sexual intercourse, etc. must never be marred by a fart. This is a
small rejection of sorts. Even if you don't mean it that way, it can spoil the
You must never fart during an argument. If you fart during
an argument, you will lose the argument. During an argument you are no longer
granted "lover" or "intimate friend" status. You must revert back to the rules
for #1 and #2 for the duration of the argument. Your full privileges as
"intimate friend" will usually return after the argument has ended.
never fart with your back facing your friend (unless you are joking and you know
that your friend will find this humorous).
You must never fart as you
walk past your friend. You could have farted in the other room or you could hold
it until you get to your final destination, so why fart right when you pass your
friend? It will seem like you are disregarding your friend's
Never fart in the car. This is a most repulsive situation that
will linger far too long and cause much discomfort to any passenger no matter
how close you are.
In order to ensure safe farting practices, discuss
your feelings on the matter with your loved one. Establish your own rules for
farting humor. If you feel you MUST fart due to some unexpected gas pain and you
are in a situation that forbids it, please apologize in advance if possible and
then again after the deed has been done. Explain that you are not feeling well.
Among close friends this should be explanation enough.
Some people find farting to be the most humorous thing in the world. If
you are this type of person, please don't assume everyone shares your
sensibilities. Ask questions. Experiment with farting stories before attempting
your own sonic boom. Watch facial expressions. Make sure your fart is actually
humorous. There's nothing funny about a big wet fart that stinks up a small car
for fifteen minutes while your grandmother holds a hanky to her face. Well,
there is... But sometimes it's a tragicomedy.
