Elevator Etiquitte

I just think that if you are going to fart on an elevator that you really should have to stay on the elevator for the entire ride until the smell dissipates.

I don’t care if you got on the elevator on the fifth floor and took it to the lobby, where you exited and I entered. I was the only occupant of the elevator when the doors opened on the second floor and two other people got on to ride to the fifth floor with me.

I had to explain to them that it wasn’t me. But I am sure they did not believe me.

I don't think that was fair.

It sounds like an average day at my house, only without the elevator.

Next time I think I'll take the stairs.

I was just going to say, "Take the stairs. Problem solved." But Undercover Mutha beat me to it.

This has never happened to me and I've been riding in elevators for years.

maybe it was you, who's to say?

What's that smell?

Geesh!! You'd think with all Dr. Oz teaches us on Oprah people would know it's not enough to "toot" and then get on the elevator thinking you've left the smell behind (heehee) you. You must swoosh your pants a little....THEN get on the elevator. We get on our elevator over here and are smacked with the smell of kimche. Yeah, now that's a wake up in the morning! Phew!

I just blame it on the kid.

He who smelt it dealt it. Just saying...

Some things you should just keep to yourself, because "Methinks the man protest too much." =)

I think that people that fart in public should be shot.

Lil Sass said...

hahahahaha! This is awesome! I posted about farting today too! Maybe that person had a lot of fiber and couldn't contain it ;-)

C'mon, Bill. Like you haven't ever been the guilty party. Maybe it's just karma getting back at you for what goes down around these parts...

Why is it the rider's problem when the building clearly has a barking spider infestation? Don't always assume the worst William!

Darn it...at least when you have the kids with you, you can say, "Did you pass gas...daddy smelled it and it is not nice!"

LOL

You don't know how many times I blame the baby..."Smells like you need a diaper change!"

The problem...if you get too comfortable you might use the baby excuse only to find that you left the house alone.

riiiiiiight. *wink*

jo said...

Wink at the people who board the elevator and say, "That was for you."

Charity Donovan said...

Same goes for department stores...if you fart in an isle you should remain in the isle until it's all good again - or at least warn people! For the love of all that is good in the world, there is seriously nothing worse than having to *take credit* for someone else's butt matter!

dude. this is freaky. this happened to me THIS EVENING on my six-floor ride down. I.DID.NOT.FART! it was the putz before me; seriously! ::stupid farter:: (p.s. this hasn't ever happened to me before. like i said: freaky.)

It would serve the dirty do-er right if what you were smelling was actually a shart.

rudecactus said...

That just ain't right. And hey, someone used my favorite term in the world - shart!

chris said...

Man, I wouldn't be caught near that fart. But you're right, one should stay on the elevator until the smell disappears. But of course, it's always the innocent ones who get killed or hurt by drive by farting.

PracticallyJoe said...

People, I must interject ... Fart and Go ... that's the way it should be. Life is full of walking into other people's messes. You take those lemons and make lemonade ... like Poops did with this very funny post.

"That wasn't me. Mine smell much better than that."

once again I am laughing out loud

Tismee2 said...

I'm chuckling so much the dog has jumped off the sofa, talking of which she normally turns and sniffs her butt when she does it. Then looks around as if to say "Was that me?"

You could have stood there with a look of distate - everyone knows everyone likes the smell of their own, so that way they would know it wasn't you.

Regina said...

Your post has made me LOL and reminded me of my dad who liked to toot at work and walk away to another area! Some of his were seriously noxious! :)

We have a friend who often walks away from the group for a moment, then comes back. When we ask what he was doing, he replies: "Crop dusting." It's his favorite term for the walk-and-fart. He just keeps walking whilst leaving a vapor trail.
