At work today a colleague started saying ugh, it smells, you have Carter, go to the toilet. Aibu to think this is rude and embarrassing for women?

So it's ok to do it to a man?

Eh? It's rude whether it's addressed to men or women. Only acceptable with direct family.

Why not women?? Are they some protected species who should be placed on a pedestal or something?? Am I missing something here op?

but was it you grin

Well yes it was actually!

But I just find men are proud.

Is there usually a lot of banter at your work place? I'm struggling to get offended on your behalf. If you had a problem with it, why not just tell them to stop?

I know men who would be absolutely gutted to be teased about having farted so I don't think it is necessarily a gender thing. If anything blokes are more likely to be expected to put up with that sort of toilet humour trading.

Jesus where do you work? How bizarre and childish.

PurpleDaisies Tue 01-Sep-15 17:58:06

Teasing not trading in my post!

Go to the toilet because you farted? confused

I would be in there all bloody day if I did that!

Spartans Tue 01-Sep-15 18:00:01

So you farted and stank the place out, but upset that someone called you out on it because you have a vagina?

Waterymargin Tue 01-Sep-15 18:00:50

Well, it wasn't an accusation, was it?! It was a fact. grin

Waterymargin Tue 01-Sep-15 18:05:39

Yes but it was a mistake!

U2HasTheEdge Tue 01-Sep-15 18:08:07

I fart all the time. I have IBS

Thankfully at work the smell just blends in with all the other bad smells.

I would be mortified if someone had mentioned a smelly fart.

You can't poison the air and then get upset that someone calls you on it!

Spartans Tue 01-Sep-15 18:11:31

It was a mistake? What were you trying to do?

Fwiw I wouldn't accuse anyone. Male or female. To suggest it's ok to do it to men because there are usually proud of it, very odd.

Pipbin Tue 01-Sep-15 18:11:46

Women fart too you know.

If I'm sure one will be silent I let slip in class too.
