to have moved seats after obese woman continously farted through the film?

(150 Posts)
plugplant Tue 05-Feb-13 23:00:34

It was a local village do, she is a nice lady and I had chatted with her before the film as she was sitting next to me. The first couple of farts I tried not to notice. But they kept on coming and it was making me retch. I had no option but to move seats in the break.

I did not confront her and I tried to cover my nose as discreetly as I could but do you think I was rude for not bearing it out until the end of the film?

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:01:18

Why was her weight a problem?

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Tue 05-Feb-13 23:01:53

Is it ok for skinny people to fart through a film?

WorraLiberty Tue 05-Feb-13 23:02:00


Slim people's farts smell of designer perfume



BeaWheesht Tue 05-Feb-13 23:02:08

What mardy said

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:02:13

YABU for being sizeist
YANBU for being fartist

ThisIsANickname Tue 05-Feb-13 23:02:14

I think you are rude to talk about her weight as if that has anything to do with it.

MolehillAlchemy Tue 05-Feb-13 23:02:43

Thin people's farts don't smell. Obv. Fattist and fartist.

Hemlet Tue 05-Feb-13 23:02:56

I know what will happen now; 'What does it matter what size she was'.

No, not unreasonable. I'd have done the same. I wouldn't put up with that for the sake of being 'polite'.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:03:10

Mind you, I'm fat and I fart. Shoot me.

Hemlet Tue 05-Feb-13 23:03:28

Ah cross post with everyone!

What has her being obese got to do with it? Yanbu for moving from the smell obviously but you seem to think she was farting because she's fat confused

Yabu to mention her size like it matters in this situation hmm

Darksideofthe80s Tue 05-Feb-13 23:04:38

Yanbu for moving seats

Yabvvu for making an issue of her size.

bedmonster Tue 05-Feb-13 23:04:43

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!! This is all I have to offer!

seeker Tue 05-Feb-13 23:04:55

She wasn't old as well, was she?

YWNBU to move, YWBVU to mention her weight as if that was relevant.

Mumsyblouse Tue 05-Feb-13 23:05:32

I don't think you were rude to move, however perhaps she had a bowel disorder, two of my relatives have this and they are very self-conscious and avoid social events because it is so embarassing. So, have a little compassion (and the weight thing is a red herring, because the people I know with this are not overweight).

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:05:34

My DH is skinny. His farts are much more unpleasant than my fat ones.


WorraLiberty Tue 05-Feb-13 23:06:01

I'm far from fat and after the lamb hotpot I had for dinner, I've been farting like a goodun.

Even the dog has moved away from me in disgust.

Would you prefer I had been sat next to you OP?

Tweasels Tue 05-Feb-13 23:06:21

What was the film?

What they all said ^^

bound to be old seeker

fat old woman

so fair game for pointing and laughing


iliketea Tue 05-Feb-13 23:07:18

YANBU about moving away from a stink, but how did you know it was her? Are obese ladies farts coloured so you could see the fart fumes coming from her?

Or did you just assume that because she was fat, she must be farty?

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:07:20

I can smell 'em from here Worra.

<flaps hands>
<screws up face>

grin [and farting] at thread

sumrandomgirl Tue 05-Feb-13 23:07:35

grin grin grin grin this made me laff haha

I expect she tried to touch your baby too [extrapolates wildly]

plugplant Tue 05-Feb-13 23:08:24

I should not have mentioned she was obese, sorry, she is a nice lady. I am mortified by what I did as it is a close knit community. Should I apologise?

katrinefonsmark Tue 05-Feb-13 23:08:27

Maybe op referred to the obesity because being squashed against her compounded her discomfort with being farted at.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:08:41

Was she eating Greggs?

Dromedary Tue 05-Feb-13 23:08:46

Not just fat, OBESE - getting into technical body mass index calculations here.

WorraLiberty Tue 05-Feb-13 23:09:02

Perhaps she was on benefits too?

Contribution based JSA farts smell much sweeter than Income based JSA farts

Another true fact.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:09:17

"Maybe op referred to the obesity because being squashed against her compounded her discomfort with being farted at."

But that's not what she said in the OP.

LouMae Tue 05-Feb-13 23:09:57

Skinny people's shit smells of roses.


Or rather angry because I will now have to explain to DH why I just LOL!

iliketea Tue 05-Feb-13 23:11:10

You've not said how you knew it was her? Unless no-one else was sitting nearby. If there were a few other people around, maybe she assumed that it was you making the stink and was glad you moved?

2rebecca Tue 05-Feb-13 23:12:30

Why should you apologise? That makes it worse. If she's not inclined to be paranoid she may have thought you moved to get a better view or be near a friend. If she was embarrassed by her farting she'd have gone to the toilet had a good shit and then came back and controlled herself. The anal sphincter should be a voluntary muscle.
If I lose control of mine I'll be staying at home watching DVDs.

seeker Tue 05-Feb-13 23:12:31

Possibly Romanian? Or Polish?

LetsKateWin Tue 05-Feb-13 23:13:16

Maybe she's on the medication I'm taking to reduce stomach acid.

I don't blame you for moving...

Tweasels Tue 05-Feb-13 23:13:23

Obese AND nice. Who'd have thought it was possible.

I need to know what film it was.

And no don't apologise, that conversation is just too embarrassing for all involved.

2rebecca Tue 05-Feb-13 23:13:35

Is this a wind up, how many films have "breaks"?

WorraLiberty Tue 05-Feb-13 23:14:01

They take up too much space.

But actually OP yanbu really. Fart once and you can pretend it wasn't you. Fart twicw in a confined space when you are in extremely close proximity to another person then get up and go. Even if its only temporarily.

In a funny way, I hope it was her that was farting and not someone else flatulating down/up wind.

If it wasn't her, she probably now thinks OP moved because she was embarrassed about her own stink bombs.

shewhowines Wed 06-Feb-13 10:31:12

everybody else nearby probably think it was the op because she moved.

You should have nipped out for a clothes peg at break and come back wearing it on your nose.

a) Everyone would think you are a cool hipster with Vera Wang jewellery on your phizzog and...

b) Obese farter would get the message.
