Gentlemen: Is it impolite to fart while at a urinal?

Asked by mowens (8379points) April 14th, 2010

It’s the same muscle. Also, it probably wouldn’t be good if you dug to deep on what spawned this question. :)

What better place? Dual relief.

I think you mean “urinal”.

And a public bathroom is pretty much the only place that can be done without being impolite. Even so, if there are other guys standing there, I would prefer to wait until they’re out of the room, or go into the stall.

If I have to fart… I will fart.

I would fart in a house.
I would fart on a mouse.
I would fart in a box.
I would fart with a fox.

And I will fart here and there.
Say! I will fart ANYWHERE!

I do so like farting!
Thank you!
Thank you,
Sam-I-am

I apologize, I am a terrible speller and I don’t have spellcheck on my droid. :)

I had no trouble understanding the question, and apparently neither did anyone else.

How would you hold it in while still relaxing to pee?

MrItty's avatar

@dpworkin Neither did I. I was simply offering the correct spelling for his own personal knowledge.

@Adirondackwannabe seems completely separate to me, even if I had a big one begging to get out I could pee and hold the fart.

@MrItty I’d do the same I’d hold it in until the room emptied or go to the stall if I couldn’t wait.

most men fart while they pee. I think you all know it. get used to it. relieve yourself.

Though it would be most courteous of you, when possible, to either wait till the people around you aren’t or head for a stall, it’s a bathroom, let’er rip.

If I can’t fart when I pee, I might as well jump out a window. The build-up of gases is going to get me soon, anyway. I have found that, past the age of 50, the gas is coming fast and furious most of the time. My digestion system is deteriorating, it seems. So please, please, please don’t make me feel bad about gaining gas relief when I pee. I’m sorry. I can’t help it. Or I could, but that is such a pain. Let’s all agree that it’s cool, all right?

It depends on the audience. If the fart slips out it can be slightly awkward whereas it’s it’s blatant and forced out you will often get a chuckle from the bloke next to you. The best thing to do if somebody blasts one out beside you is to smile and say “better out than in”.

What an interesting conversation this is. I just wanted to jump in because of something funny that just happened yesterday. My next door neighbor came over and introduced himself. I had already met his gf and his dog. He wanted to apologize for waking me up last weekend mowing. I work nights and sleep during the day) I laughed it off, apologized for scaring him. He’s a big, tall, very heavyset man. Apparently it was my face and my pushing my hair back that made him nervous. Anyway, later that evening I was outside smoking and he came out to his truck and Faaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrted a big long, loud fart. I started laughing because I think he though he was alone. Didn’t see me sitting there and he must have gone outside so his gf wouldn’t hear it, little knowing that I was a not so silent witness. So, he heard me laugh, froze for a second, then kept walking. Poor dope. I don’t know if I should now apologize to him or just “let it go”. No pun intended.

@Trillian – Sounds like it is your turn. :-)

@ChazMaz that’s a good idea. I’ll try to arrange something…;-)

A little old couple prepares to go to bed. They no sooner hit the pillows when the old man farts and says, “Seven Points.”

His wife rolls over and says, “What in the world was that?”

The old man replied, “It’s fart football.”

A few minutes later his wife lets one go and says, “Touchdown, tie score.”

After about five minutes the old man lets another one go and says, “Aha. I’m ahead 14 to 7.”

Not to be outdone, the wife rips out another one and says, “Touchdown, tie score.”

Five seconds go by and she lets out a little squeaker and says, “Field goal, I lead 17 to 14.”

Now the pressure is on the old man. He refuses to get beat by a woman, so he strains real hard, but to no avail. Realizing a defeat is totally unacceptable he gives it everything he’s got, and accidentally he shytes in the bed. The wife says, “What the hell was that?”

The old man says, “Half time, switch sides.”

I usually will refrain from farting standing at a stall next to another gent…but if he fires one off first he will quickly regret it!! lol!

SolidusR's avatar

i do try to hold it in…if someone is right next to me… but if i see that the bathroom is empty, i will let one go once i come in and one before i step out. Farting is healthy, google it!!!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb It’s what enables us to put up with women.

janbb's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Yeah – but we get to have the breasts so nyah, nyah!

Just for the record I have a friend who had his prostate removed. Since the removal those two responses are directly tied together. Piss and your fart and vice versa.
If the guy is over 50 and farting while standing at the urinal, pity him. There’s a good chance he’s going through things you can’t imagine.

TheLoneMonk's avatar

It is not rude at all. In fact, a healthy fart is generally well respected by the bathroom denizens. I have, in fact, been applauded for a few farts while standing at the porcelain.

ratboy's avatar

If someone at an adjacent urinal is eating, it is better to refrain from passing gas.

JeffVader's avatar

I think pretty much anything goes….
