I've not got any particular problem with gas, honestly. Second sizable packet that sil has given me over the years. She gives it to me with a meaningful look about how she always likes to have a couple on her at all times. Its not a normal thing to do is it? Give someone medication to stop farting, is it? I'm really sure I'm not excessively gassy, I promise. Or do you?

Maybe she has found it so life-changing for herself that she thinks everyone should use it.. but yes, it's a but odd.

That's strange. And funny.

this is the best passive aggressive gift ever. Is she particularly farty? Do you get on OK when she's not giving you insulting presents?

Don't you ask her why she's giving it to you?

give her some breath freshener mints.

just a thought
(hate the whole idea of it myself)

totally ignore that war memorial thing! it's from something I was looking at earlier
deflatine is rude, but being killed in the Somme is a bit harsh
lol

Perhaps next time just say "oh no thank you sweetie, you look like you need them more than me at the moment" glance down at her bottom / tummy area and follow up with " ive heard that cutting down on bread helps with the bloating"

Give her a cork and a significant look.

Best copy/paste error ever.

Does she work for somewhere that means she gets a discount on it? Does she give you other presents?

Ioethe
exactly grin

I thought deflatine was to make you fart. If you had trapped wind?

Surely you cant buy anything to stop you farting? You'd explode?
Perhaps she thinks your bloated.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Fri 06-Jun-14 14:26:08

She clearly thinks you're fat bloated. grin

Give her some Canesten and say it's because it's the best cure for an irritating cunt.

ouryve Fri 06-Jun-14 14:28:57

Perhaps she wants you to fart more when you visit?

That is seriously.....odd. What does she give you (if anything) for eg Xmas?

cozietoesie Fri 06-Jun-14 14:50:19

(I'm just wondering whether she has form for strangeness in other ways.)

Icelollycraving Fri 06-Jun-14 14:54:32

My favourite thread this week grin
Really has made me chuckle.

All jokes aside, it is wierd. SIL are wierd though, IMO.

Its not for gas, deflatine will make you have gas, its for bloating and trapped wind

not quite sure what she is saying OP...
