Passing gas can be a sensitive subject for some people. But the fact of the matter is that every human on the planet needs to expel gas in one way or another.
In fact, there are lots of wonderful health benefits to passing gas that many don’t know about. Most people think that it’s just an embarrassing, stinky, loud bodily function that they’d rather live without.
While there are positive things about letting one loose, there is also a time and a place for it to happen. Unfortunately, your body doesn’t know that, and will often let one rip whenever it is ready. This means that a fart can lead to some pretty embarrassing situations.
These 12 stories definitely made me blush (and have sympathy) for the sorry Reddit users who shared them. They are so embarrassed that they may make you want to hide under a blanket yourself!
Has anything like this ever happened to you? It’s always best to laugh at ourselves in retrospect… after the stench has cleared.
“I farted in 7th-grade music class. Everyone was just sitting around waiting for the teacher, so the room was very quiet. It echoed.” – Ashlee_Phoenix
“I farted alone in a car with a female employee. There was no denying it… the sound, the smell. All I could do was say excuse me and roll down the window.” – Stan_Pellegrino
“I really needed to fart in class, so I tried to drop a book on the floor and fart at the same time so no one would notice. The book dropped making a loud sound which made everyone look at me, then I farted loudly.” – Reddit User
“Fifth grade. A teacher was the most pissed off I ever saw her. She all but screamed at the room to be quiet. The room fell silent, and mere seconds later, my body decided it was time to release the longest, loudest fart I’ve ever had in my life. Maybe my memory exaggerates, but I can’t recall a time I’ve ever farted that long or loud. Good thing is, it made teacher laugh and everyone was in a good mood again.” – RaineRios
“When my girlfriend and I first started dating, we had a lot of movie nights. She isn’t a big fan of horror movies like I am, but decided to give them a shot. We were watching one, and something happened — scary scene, ‘AHHHHH!’ And she just lets out the loudest fart ever. I was in shock and awe but it was hilarious.” – MrChanceism
“When I was little, I was sitting in church with my family on those really painful wooden pews that are the bane of my existence. I felt one coming and tried to sneak it through.
“I then discovered, much to my chagrin, that the fart made an incredibly high pitched whistling sound which reverberated off the polished wooden pews, during a lull in the sermon.” – Wars and rumors
“One time my grandpa farted so loud it woke him up.” – AyoLefty
“The worst was at a gynecologist appointment. Just as the doc was… examining…” – Reddit User
“Tenth grade in a class. My seat was directly underneath the AC unit thing. It sucked air up and blew it across the class. I let out a very long, airy, silent stinker. It’s sucked up, and turbo distributed across the entire room. Girl on the opposite side of a class gets it first. She abruptly stands up covering her nose/mouth and screams.” – Darby
“When I was little, my family went to a small church. There would be less than 50 people per service. It was during the moment of silence/prayer when my mom just let one rip. Also, I should mention that my mom is a prim and proper Southern lady. She started to silently apologize to everyone around us. She was mortified. She even looked up and said, “sorry Jesus.”
“I had to leave for the remainder of the service because I couldn’t stop laughing.” – vangoghsl3ftear
“On a date, I knew I had gas, and the pub was busy, so I let two go about 5 minutes apart, and then the third one was loud. Thankfully he started laughing and asked if I needed to go to the bathroom.” – jaywalker
“At work, while taking a customer’s order at their table, I dropped my pen, and when I bent over to pick it up I let out a quick fart. If that wasn’t bad enough it instantly smelled. The look on the man’s face was priceless. Too hungry to go elsewhere I guess.” – micmighty
