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

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?

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

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?

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

Was she eating Greggs?

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

Perhaps she was on benefits too?

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

Another true fact.

"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.

Skinny people's shit smells of roses.

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

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?

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.

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.

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

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

What was the movie called anyway?


MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:14:44

Genuinely lolled at Bravefart.

JoanByers Tue 05-Feb-13 23:15:02

I wouldn't want to sit next to a fat person.

They take up too much space.

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Tue 05-Feb-13 23:15:14

Maybe it was Gone With The Wind

iliketea Tue 05-Feb-13 23:15:49

just woke dh laughing at bravefart! gringringringrin

MechanicalTheatre Tue 05-Feb-13 23:15:53

Don't apologise! Come on!!!

"Sorry I moved away from you before, but you were farting too much."


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

Maybe it starred Doris Day
