I had a good weekend. It was kind of extra-short this time, but we nevertheless made the best of it – which translates into lots of snuggling and not going out at all besides shopping and doing some laundry :) Sounds good to me, doesn’t it to you?
Then Sunday afternoon I got picked up by the shuttle and before I knew it, I was sitting at the airport again waiting for my flight back to Sacramento. Let me tell you, spending as much time at the airports as I do will give you plenty of opportunities to witness strange things. Therefore, I have opened a new category, “airport etiquette”, because I have the feeling that I will share some of the strange things with you today and in the future.
So, I am sitting at the airport waiting for my flight and there is this older guy sitting kind of next to me at the gate. All of the sudden, I hear a fart and I am thinking “WTF?” and then this guys starts making farting noises with his mouth. You know, those kind of noises that you make when you push air through your almost closed lips which sounds like little farts. So he did that to distract from the fact that he actually just farted. In public. Really loudly.
But that is not all. He actually did this another 3 times. Sorry, but I am just grossed out. Why is it that guys obviously can’t fart silently?
I know, I am really sorry to bother you with this story, but I have encountered that a couple of times now and also that a lot of people just burp in public. Maybe, I am just unaware that the US belongs to the list of countries where farting and burping is some kind of compliment to the host of a dinner. But wait, there was no party and there was no dinner and there was still burping and farting.
Ok, that makes no sense to me and I don’t think anyone should do that in public. Period.
