Rule of thumb! When you’re having a conversation with some one (or a group of people) and you suddenly smell someone’s farted – ignore it! Never ever acknowledge it or this could end up being one of the most awkward conversations ever. Last week at work, the exact thing happened to me (And before you ask - No, I did not fart, someone else did...lol).
I would typically ignore this except the smell kept getting stronger and stronger and I just had to stop and say something – though half out of fear that they’d think it was me (don’t ask why! I have no idea…lol). I asked if anyone else could smell it and everyone else said they couldn’t at which point I let out a nervous laugh/shriek (way to go banshee) and said maybe it was all in my mind.
The conversation after that was painful as one of the girls I was talking to thought it could have been the fact that she had been soaked in the rain on her way in and her coat might smell a bit funky (you know – that ‘wet dog’ smell though I knew that was not what I could smell). The conversation just went painful and awkward from then on with me trying to pretend I hadn’t smelt anything in the first place... *cringes* Never again… *shakes head* Never…
