Most of us squeeze in our bums when our farts are trying their best to come out in public places, but one husband does the opposite.
In an opinion piece posted by Kid Spot, his frustrated wife opened up about the problem that has caused a lengthy debate.
“Ben had done this sort of thing from very early on in our relationship and he continues to do it now,” she wrote.
“In his eyes, farting, in fact any type of flatulence is perfectly normal,” she continued. “Like Shrek, Ben says ‘better out than in’ whenever I raise it as an issue.”
She also shared the time she was meeting her co-workers at a fancy restaurant. She had only been at the job for a couple of months and was just starting to feel comfortable with her colleagues.
But when she and her husband approached her co-workers, Ben let out a very loud fart.
“Their faces were a combination of shock and disgust, mine was bright red. Ben, though, continued on around the table introducing himself and shaking several other hands as if nothing had happened,” she said.
“As soon as we got home that evening, I told Ben exactly what I thought about his actions and refused to speak to him for a week.
“I was so humiliated.
“While I don’t have an issue with farting or burping at home, I do think when you are in public or at social events that common courtesy should prevail and you save the release of whatever gas is building for home, or at least the toilet.”
“Ben, though, does not agree with this view. Instead, he is very comfortable, confident even, in letting the loudest and most foul-smelling farts out whenever and wherever he needs to,” she continued.
“Over the years this has included: while in line at the grocery store with several trolleys (and shoppers) behind us, in packed movie theatres, at dinner parties with friends, at other people’s significant birthdays, in elevators, weddings… yep, Ben has even farted at funerals.
“While Ben doesn’t bat an eyelid when he does this, just thinking it is completely normal and healthy to do so, I am regularly left mortified.”
