We have all been there. You’re at a party or on a subway, or some other place where you are surrounded by people, and suddenly you have to pass gas. Sometimes it’s unavoidable and can lead you to feel ashamed or even lower your self confidence. Here are some tips to keep your embarrassment at a minimum.
Flatulence is a hard thing to deal with. Normally it stems for dietary choices, or diseases, but there are many forms of flatulence and gas that are very hard to avoid. Many names can be associated with flatulence. Poot, fart, wind, and many others are day to day terms. However words such as flatulence and flatus sound scientific, and when used to describe or explain yourself will make it seem like an inevitable thing that everyone goes through.
If you wish to mask the fact that you have gas there are a couple things you can do. Sometimes you can wait until a loud noise is about to happen and release your gas as the noise is made. This will at least mask the sound of your flatulence. Do not make the loud noise yourself however, as it will draw attention to you, even if it does mask the sound, the smell might tip people off at what you were trying to hide. Also if you make the loud sound yourself to cover the sound of your flatulence you may time it wrong with can be disastrous as it will call attention to you and then all in the room will notice that you are farting.
Another way to mask the fact that you are flatulent is to walk by a group of people you do not know and gently let it slip out. If you are lucky there will be no noise and the smell will be blamed on someone in the group, and hopefully quickly forgotten.
If you are standing next to someone you do not like, or wish to play a practical joke on, having gas can be the exact prank you have been looking for, by standing next to them and letting one rip, then looking at them and stepping away, people around you will believe it was the person you are playing the prank on.
The final way is to get out of the room, for a breath of fresh air. What you will really be doing is passing gas while no one is around. This technique can be dangerous though as your spot in line, or your chair in a theater, or other place may be stolen in your absence.
