LOL, if you've never accidently squeezed one out at the gym you aren't working hard enough. It is rather embarrassing though, you just have to pretend that it didn't happen.
Yeah, I am talking about guys or gals who are releasing CONSTANT gas for their entire workout.
i think it has to do with the protein shakes that they're drinking.

Aah, the benefits of a private office... though the funny looks when people wander in during a "red flag" event are usually priceless. Getting punched awake by a wife who's awoken gagging to your beer + egg salad fart and then getting guilt tripped for her tiredness the next day also ranks right up there. I'm far to immature to have a child, poor thing... :) Though after feeding her pureed green beans she could put daddy to shame with her own 5 month old flatulence which somehow merits a dirty look at me by her mother...

You sir, have never worked in an office. That or never at a large corporation.

Option #1 would result in a visit from HR and a write-up. :laugh:
Option #2 is a no go as we all have our own desks.

An HR visit for telling someone their gas smells? Where do you work???

We'll if you tell someone "if you fart like that again, I'm gonna crush your fucking head", that might get an HR visit. :shocked:

QFT. This is one of the reasons I gave up a high-protein diet.

Manager's cloth covered office chair + burrito fart = comedy gold.

Plant the bomb, stand back while he sits down, and he'll be afraid to sit for the rest of his life :)
