To not want my wife to use my favourite hat to waft her farts

That's it really- just sitting here watching TV and she does a little deadly one and reaches to grab my beautiful little hand knitted fair isle hat off the arm of the chair in order to waft the fumes away. Imagine tomorrow, walking through town and everyone sniffing as I pass by.

I love her.

I can't imagine a knitted hat is very effective at fart-wafting. Have you considered buying her a fan?

Buy her one of these:

And hide your hat.

I think it's a good use for a fair isle hat grin

I can't believe people are making light of this situation.

Get her a Panama grin

That is a shocking use of a hand knitted fair isle hat! Whatever next?! Will she be wiping the sweat from her brow with a mohair sweater? Nip it in the bud OP. This is a serious crime against knitwear

Hey at least she tried to waft it away :D

I think this all hinges on who knitted the hand-knitted hat. Much loved elderly aunt or suchlike = YANBU. Someone you've never met = YABU.

Best AIBU ever.

Does she waft it towards you? I wouldn't allow my hat to be used in such a foul manner, tbh. Hide the hat and buy her a newspaper.

ha ha! Grounds for divorce.

FatOldBag Fri 24-Feb-17 22:11:36

Was she wafting towards you, or away? If away then YABU, she was being very considerate.

ChampagneTastes Fri 24-Feb-17 22:13:06

I'm conflicted.

This is so bizzare but satisfying

If you had put your hat away instead of leaving it on the arm of the chair, it wouldn't have been there for her to use.

Give her some matches and tell her to light them from now on.

I bet the OP has a beard and a fixie.

Definitely being unreasonable. A Fair Isle hat is too floppy, what was she thinking? Something more solid is needed for optimal wafting.

Have you considered replacing your favourite hat with a top hat? Then she can fart into it and sort of funnel it... outwards during wafting.

YABU for keeping a hat on the arm of a chair.

Personally i use DH's sombrero for a Mexican Wave effect grin

RustyPaperclip Fri 24-Feb-17 22:44:32

I like your thinking Molly however there is much to be said for the Mexican wave effect <toddles off to ponder bowler hats or a good old pork pie hat>
