    ...it's 9PM and you're all alone on a Thursday, and ya figure nobody's going to come in at this time during the week. The tofu and broccoli ya had for dinner in beginning to kick in, and you decide it's safe to let one go.

    A woman walks in.

    Do you apologize, or make like nothing happened. I made like nothing happened.

    The intelligent thing to do would be to ask her what she ate.

    I would have said, "Thank God you're here! You've got to help me get outta this place! I've been trapped in here for three days!"

    Then I'd look at the door as if seeing it for the first time, and bolt out right past her.

    Wasn't me!

    Haha, I've been in that same spot. If it's someone I'll be seeing again, I explain just so they don't think I crapped my pants or I always smell that way. If it's someone I'll probably never see again, I remain silent.

    I'd flash her a big grin and say, "plenty more where that came from"

    Now you're alone again.

    Explain that what they are now inhaling is particles of your poo filtered slightly through drawers is currently entering their nose and mouth?

    No way, something is burning or something crawled under the machine and died or whoever did it just left.

    Man I think that last guy let one "rip"

    Yes. It was. But with a screenname like bigboy I'd be careful about the jokes I made. :ninja: :)

    Now she knows you eat broccoli and tofu, so you might as well give up anyway. :D

    What is this "tofu and broccoli" you speak of? And what kind of skirt were you wearing when you ate it?
  14. Don't make eye contact. If she doesn't see your face, she can't blame you later in the hall.

    The real question is... how many more people are going to make the same joke?

    Flip the story around. You walk into a room. You immediately smell intestinal gas and there is only one person in the room before you.

    You don't need to be a Sherlock Holmes to put 1 and 1 together.

  17. Right now I'm thinking 'hi- how about we met and discuss this about 1 yr from now- should be pretty comical about then'

    But clearly it's the beer thinking

    She kinda looked like this actually:


    Would have been worse for some reason if she looked like this:


    My experience is that the latter never washes clothes.
