Does anyone else get angry when their SO does disgusting farts in communal living areas, such that you cannot approach them without feeling you have the taste of human sh*t in your mouth?

DP thinks its hilarious, and is a little baffled about me hurling the child at him and hiding in the spare room.

Jerk.

Ah....there goes my theory then lol! There obviously is a school of thought that farts are hilarious....I mean Benny hill is (was? Is he still alive?) a rich man on the strength of all his flatulence hilarity !

Urgh I fear I will be outnumbered soon by territory marking males, DS already worships DP and he can do no wrong in his eyes.

My eyes, on the other hand, are watering...

DH actually drove the kids and I out of the house this morning, he dropped such a foul odour.

Even DS who was sitting a good 20 feet away was grossed out.  sick.gif

I think there is an inherent funniness.  You can unlearn this funniness, as pooks is doing right now.  Innocent dd has not experienced the sort of fart described in the op so it's all giggles ATM.

haha one of my friends calls it the "fart and dart" when someone does a really SBD fart but then runs away....

After all the rich food yesterday all the bowels in our house sound like the wind section in a orchestra!

However we do tend to keep to toilets and private areas.

Except the two year old and four year old.

It's hilarious to them!

When DH and I started dating (centuries ago) when we were in the car he used to always pull the old "can you smell petrol?" .....it is almost an involuntary reflex to sniff when someone asks you that! Got me every time....

DH does that with the kids too.

He usually saves his stink bombs for the car or the bedroom  sick.gif

Right about now I am very thankful that DF's do not smell at ALL.

Unless he is sick. It's kind of how I can tell he is sick.

DSDs are only just now learning not to pull his finger hehehe Though DSD7 STILL thinks it's hilarious.

I don't have a problem with them....just a normal bodily function...
but what I do hate is people farting at meal times.  It is disgusting...I don't care that it is better out that in....better for you but horrible for everyone else.

Everyone does it here.  Whoever dealt it usually gets it fanned back in their direction with a cushion.  We do however excuse ourselves.

He drops absolute rotten eggers, layer upon layer, says nothing and then when I walk into the "zone" just sits there innocently.

Sick, sick b*st*rd.

Haven't even married the bugger yet.

He reckons he'll really, really let go if we do.

I hope they never start emissions taxing individuals or we are in trouble.

I'm of the opinion that farts are hilarious, and it's a free for all in this house. If you can't beat 'em OP, join 'em biggrin.gif

In our household I'm the one who has taught DD the pull the finger trick. ph34r.gif She thinks that it is hilarious.

When we catch her doing a fart and ask her if she just did one she will cackle with absolute glee. In our house farts are funny.

I grew up with a dad and 2 older brothers who could produce some truly hideous odours. The sort that could and did clear a room. That was gross. At least in my own little family (DH and DD) we have the courtesy to warn each other if there is a need to avoid entering a room.  

As I type this DH is changing DD's dirty nappy. I'm so glad that I still don't have all of my smell back yet after having a bad cold!  laughing2.gif
