Had a conversation with work colleagues the other week which absolutely blew my mind. A majority of my (predominantly female) colleagues stated with absolute conviction that they went to the toilet to fart when in the workplace. What’s more, they were utterly aghast when I revealed that I didn’t.
Now, I was aware that some people did this, but always perceived it as an example of extreme behaviour by neurotic individuals who badly need to relax about life.
I did point out that they had hitherto been completely unaware that I had been stealthily guffing away in their presence without causing auditory or olfactory offence, a fact which they reluctantly accepted.
However, it seems that , in my office at least, I’m in the (silent) minority. Am I alone in thinking that going to the toilet to fart is absolute madness?
