Frustration Over Flatulence

Two years ago on a flight from JFK to Heathrow, I was seated next to a middle-aged pudgy man. He ordered a cocktail directly after take-off, took two sleeping pills with his drink, and promptly fell asleep.

Soon after he fell asleep, he began to pass gas; loud, smelly, ridiculous farts. I was on the aisle, and the row across from me had an open seat. The woman sitting in the aisle across from me took pity on me and let me move over next to her. Everyone in a two-row radius fluctuated between giggles and grimaces for the next few hours.

About 3 hours later the man woke up. He still was suffering from a GI tract abomination, however. He then began trying to “control” himself. Eventually he failed, letting one really rip. He looked across the aisle directly at me, and explained, “Sorry, these sleeping pills give me gas.”

WHY would you take them then?!
