AAArrrrgghhhh....Why can't people.........

Just let me Fart in peace

on 3 or 4 occassions I have let rip in the comfort of my own surrounds and where my office area is...........

And virtually straight away I have had HR director visit me this morning handing me revised employee handbook...

Then Mech engineering manager....

Then when I thought ahhh a bit of peace....to let one go....within a minute I have a salesman coming up asking for permission to show visitors the test control room

Why can't I be allowed to fart in peace and to enjoy the essence ON my OWN!!

Didn't you know? - farting is, in fact, an incantation which summons unwanted visitors.

Just trump up whilst people are there ... you might find you start to get less visitors

Memories of yaers ago when I was nightshift in the cop shop and I dropped one. What a stench.
The female station assistant never batted an eyelid and carried on as if nothing had happenned.
So being a decent sort I went to fingthe air freshener which was kept exclusively for the prisoners in the station ,and I sprayed it in the area to disguise the smell.

Well at this she screamed jumped up and ran out of the office.


Apparently she was allergic to aerosols (Had to be careful spelling that).....No one tells you

But as JTL says where ere ye be let yer wind gang free...or end up with sore guts

Re: AAArrrrgghhhh....Why can't people.........

Freedom to make a stench, in the trench, is recocognised as a right. But from whence that stench cometh, must be identified, otherwise an orderly will trouser sniff to identify, just to be sure it's not just one selfish person, continually at it, but freedom for all.:

Re: AAArrrrgghhhh....Why can't people.........

Be happy with what you have.

I can't even burp in my office as
the French concider it rude and disgusting.


(As opposed to ****ting and ****ing anywhere
but in the toilet and then not washing hands after,
which is perfectly acceptable. )

Re: AAArrrrgghhhh....Why can't people.........

I used to work in an office populated by mainly women, so I used to build them up for when I went to the toilet. It's very satisfying doing a 20 second fart

Maybe not very lady-like but I think that's hilarious

Re: AAArrrrgghhhh....Why can't people.........

OK - can someone explain to me why farting is so, apparently, hilarious?

I don't find it disgusting, interesting or noteworthy. It, to me is the same as, for example blinking. Substitute blink for fart and that is what I see in all of the conversations about it.

"Who blinked in the lift"

" I work in an office full of women - so I didn't blink 'til I was on my own"

I worked with a guy that would blink in a busy office then leave for 10mins !!

- hilarious eh?

Sorry - just don't get it.

Re: AAArrrrgghhhh....Why can't people.........

Farts are great especially if your sat down they sometimes give your balls a good tickle! Apologies for being crude I dont get out much

I think it was Johnny Vegas that said " farts are like children, you hate everyone elses and treasure your own" True!

Paul.
The comedic value comes from the irony of someone not finding amusing what everyone else does. Not the act (in the case the expulsion of flatus).

It's a joke that works on two levels. Noisy fart for the kids, ironic mystification for the rest.

Try and see how unfunny igniting flatus, is on the above mentioned site.

Nice try - but totally unconvincing.
