Is it weird to go to the bathroom just to fart?

Sometimes I just have to get up from the table at a restaurant or cafe or other spot, away from friends and acquaintances, because I have to release some gas. I don't have to pee or poop or wash my hands or anything..just fart. That's acceptable, correct? Do you do it?

I'm sure there are more people that do that.

My uncle's wife used to insist that he fart only in the bathroom, so he would wait until she was in there doing her hair or makeup to do it.

Like a boss!

But yes, for propriety's sake I will step away from people (bathroom, hallway, etc) before I let rip.

My mancave, though, is a free fire zone.

Not weird, but it can lead to a broken heart.

I would hope everyone does this? I can't imagine what kind of an animal just farts while sitting at a table having dinner with other people.

Some people use a silencer.

Play dumb and say "does anyone else smell the nasty water in this place?"

Re: Is it weird to go to the bathroom just to fart?

Yes, all the time. I can't imagine being at the family dinner table, lifting up my leg and letting a big, huge, fart out for the world to hear and smell.

My brother, on the other hand, would fart in front of Queen Elizabeth if the pain hit.

Re: Is it weird to go to the bathroom just to fart?

Depends. If I'm sitting in a hoity-toity restaurant having a nice meal with other well-dressed people around me, then yes, I'll probably excuse myself and go to the restroom. But if I'm walking down the aisle at Walmart and feel one coming on, fuck 'em, they can deal with it.

Re: Is it weird to go to the bathroom just to fart?

I can't say that I've done this, then again I'm usually in control enough to not have that urge when dining with others.

Why hit the bathroom at all? Just cropdust some other diners while strolling through the restaurant.

If you haven't learned how to silently sneak farts out from being in high school then this is your best option.

Re: Is it weird to go to the bathroom just to fart?

this thread reminds me of this little story i read

"Today, in math class, I had the urge to fart. I had the bright idea that if I dropped my textbook and farted at the same time, nobody would hear it. I dropped my textbook, everyone looked at me, then I farted. Loudly. "

I've heard this is sometimes employed by servers to prompt patrons that have paid but remain at the table for some time to leave the restaurant.

Wow, I worked in restaurants for 16 years and never heard that one.

Since you're in the bathroom, might as well poop. There's probably something that's still fermenting and causing the gas situation.

It's a safety issue. You never know when you're going to squeeze out a wet one.

Oh, come on. You let out a little tester fart to determine a) if the full farts will be loud, and b) if they will be smelly. If you get good results, then all systems are go and let er rip!

Re: Is it weird to go to the bathroom just to fart?

This old lady goes to see her doctor.
"What seems to be the problem?", the doctor asks.
She replies, "Well doctor, yesterday during church I silently passed gas six times. Later, during sunday dinner, I silently passed gas five times. While in your waiting room I silently passed gas seven times. Just since I've been talking to you I've silently passed gas three times. What can we do about it?"
"Well", replied the doctor, "The first thing we're going to do is get you a hearing aid."

I can confirm that this is true. Sometimes it even works.

Re: Is it weird to go to the bathroom just to fart?

No, because if I need to fart, I can either suck it back in, or let it out silently. Also, mine don't really smell, unless I have some shit on tap, which is rare, since I try to keep my bowels empty.
