Offensive Farts Cause Outcry

May 4, 2009

in Odor Stories

On a flight from Santo Domingo to Miami, my wife and three children are seated in two rows in the middle of the plane while I am seated a few rows behind them. About fifteen minutes after take off, a horrible fart odor fills the air around my wife and kids. My wife, not being the shy type, starts complaining loudly about how rude someone is behaving by not using the restroom. About ten minutes later the odor returns and my wife complains a little louder but is now joined by other passengers. This occurs again and again until the two hour flight lands. Though I had heard my wife’s complaints I had not had the pleasure of smelling the offensive farts.

My wife could not stop complaining about the flight as waited in customs and at the baggage area. After getting the bags we climb into our family van for the 30 minute ride home from MIA. About halfway home my wife covers her nose and starts screaming at the kids; the odor had been coming from one of them. Between the screaming and the laughter I had my first chance to smell “it.” It was a deadly odor which merited all of the complaints I had listened to during the flight. This story is repeated often between the kids (all daughters, by the way).

Thank you… the Poland Spring water up my nose just cleaned out my sinuses.

Your wife sounds quite rude and obnoxious. Your poor child was too embarrassed to admit that he or she was the "culprit" after their mother made a big stink about the stink! What she should have done first was quietly ask her kids if any of them needed to use the bathroom and give them a chance to not be humiliated.

Let's see….. so the mother was complaining that adults on the flight didn't go to the bathroom to fart in private….. something she NEVER TAUGHT HER KIDS TO DO?

I would not like sitting next to your wife on the plane. Have some class and keep your loud mouth quiet.

I would bet a million bucks it was your wife that was doing it.
