 Anyone else tend to gas up when walking. I cant walk too much but still I have to go to the grocery store .I try to find a bad cart each time, one with the squeaky wheels, because,  looks like to me thats when I fill up like the helium balloons they sell. Things get worse as I move because then I start to make noise like a squeaky dog toy. Bleep, blat , bloop with each step. Thats ok if no one is near but I have had to look at my shoes as if to say, Thats what you hear lady, my shoes are making funny noises. I can usually make a bee line to the cat food isle where the smell is odd ayway and not as noticeable, but cant stay there for long. I am sure the store has lost out on sales in that department. Wow Mildrid, dont buy that , it smells like cat crap. I try to shop a fast as I can and make a mad dash for the door, then its across the parking lot like an outboard motor, prrrrt ,prrrrrrrrt, prrt , prrrrrrrrrt. Ah, safe in my truck at last. Odd, I've run out of gas. I call the little grocery mall, fart mart.

That's so funny! And yes, I do tend to do that in grocery stores, Wallyworld, malls it doesn't matter. In fact a couple of years ago, we were in Lowes and I couldn't stop farting.....which made my DH and son laugh. Which in turn made me laugh and pass even more gas. Never did hear if anyone was found passed out in the lighting department due to "noxious fumes"!

OMG I thought I was the ONLY ONE:) I think that is my biggest complaint these days, is the constant gas problem. And they always pick the worst time to sneak out!

Sniper, your grocery store story reminds me of a time my Mom who did not suffer with Crohns, but had those silent but deadly ones. She was walking in the meat dept looking at what meat to buy, and one of those SBD's snuck out. A lady comes walking by shortly afterward and looks at my Mom, and says "Good God this meat department stinks!". All you saw as my Mom walked away was her shoulders shaking from laughing so hard.

Now my Dad, had those loud clappers that really didn't stink, but boy were they loud. He was in the grocery store and looked down one direction and then the other, saw no one, so let rip. No sooner did he let rip some lady comes walking around the corner. Course Dad did the samething and looked at his shoes like something was wrong with them.

Don't you just find fart stories funny:)

Not a big fan of Larry the cable Guy character, but the term "walkin' farts" really did hit me.  We have supersized grocery stores here....and they just keep getting bigger so more room to spread the fumes i think.  I just love the paint department in Lowe's...it can cover a lot of released pressure.  hubby notices I rush to get to the car because sitting down always seems to relieve things.  I've even stopped in the grocery store to try out the lawn furniture just to keep from blipping away some more.

Sniper...do yours really smell like cat droppings???? If they do then I consider you a small offender.  I'm looking for a grocery store that sells elephant food so I can hide there!

Needless to say, i was the inspiration for our family terms of blipper and woofie.  passing gas just doesn't seem to reflect the true sentiment

The secret is to keep moving, then look back at whomever wanders into the kill zone as if they had done it.

I recall an old story of two men sitting on a park bench , as a lady walked by one man let a loud one rip. The other man looked at him and said, how could you do that when that lady could hear you. The other guy say, Hey, she doesn't know if it was me or you....

My little brother thinks my minute long farts are "impressive."

I spend a good chunk of my day at work holding in the lovely gas. Last week, I thought I was the only one left and was letting 'em rip freely - in my office, in the open area as I walked to and from the printer.... When I was leaving for the night, I turned off the lights and put on the burglar alarm. Someone came running out of his office saying he was still there! I'm pretty mortified that he heard all my "music."

You guys are too funny!  tongue    I have a story I'd like to share with you about a former coworker.  I don't think she had any diagnosed digestive issues, but her experience falls in line with your stories.  She told us that she was sitting on her couch with her dog one evening watching TV.  They were both covered with a blanket when she suddenly "let one rip."  The dog jumped off the couch, shot her a dirty look, and then left the room.  I still laugh every time I think about that.  smilewinkgrin
