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?

Why was her weight a problem?

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

Slim people's farts smell of designer perfume

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

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

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

Monstermashpotato Tue 05-Feb-13 23:03:58

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

Yanbu for moving seats

Yabvvu for making an issue of her size.

She wasn't old as well, was she?

SDTGisAnEvilWolefGenius Tue 05-Feb-13 23:05:06

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

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?

GwendolineMaryLacey Tue 05-Feb-13 23:06:27

What they all said ^^

BoysAreLikeDogs Tue 05-Feb-13 23:06:36

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?

I can smell 'em from here Worra.
