    When a stranger with a huge backside bends in front of you, do you not look?

    Especially if your kids point it out, how can you not?

    Sometimes if I notice, but I don't stare. If it catches your eye, of course you look, even if you don't want to. If your kids point it out, of course you do, even though I don't have kids I had younger siblings that did.

    It's human nature to glance quickly, but don't stare that poor person must feel bad enough as it is.
    If the kids point just shhhh them away and tell them quietyl not to point or be rude.
    Inside you are quietly cringing for that person.

    I can't help but look! It's like it draws me in, I try not to but my eyes won't look away. Its like when I see a woman with tripple Fs I can't help but wonder how they got so big.

    Hi Rutley-

    Speaking candidly...

    If its on a woman, I can't help it.  On a man, nah.
    Would never make any sort of comment or overt action though.

    The world is full of beautiful and interesting sights.

    I think its really hard not to look!!! The last person that did that to me - while I was with my young niece and nephews - bent over on the bus to life his bags up and passed wind like a tornado!!!! I don't know who was more embarrassed by the screeching laughs of the kids me or the guy with the huge butt!!!

      Seeker, your to funny!  My kids would of said, "Did you hear that?" My shoulders would have been going up and down and I would have been slapping my knees because it wasn't me farting!

    I usually get bashed by my wife because I make comments about ferrets in a sack.

    Okay, I'll admit it. I'm embarrassed to fess up, but it is like a train wreck...you just have to look. My bad.

      Love it!  Especially if it has bright pink pants squeezed over it!  Sorry, that's rude!

    Sometimes I do, but whenever I realised that my eyes are going to focus on that person I look away.

    I also think its hard not to look, but I try to look away. Whether a woman or a man it is difficult not to notice. I keep my comments to myself.

    Ha! How can you not look? The eye naturally gravitates toward movement. I'm assuming this stranger was standing up in front of me and then all of a sudden bent over. That movement would cause me to look, and then if my kid pointed it out to me, I would be more embarrassed than the person in front of me, but I would turn the kid's view away from the scene and try to get them to stop talking about it. Because you know kids - they'll keep talking about it until you acknowledge them with an appropriate response. I guess they need some kind of confirmation from grownups that they really did see what they thought they saw. "Look, mommy, look! Was that a ...?" Am I the only one who hasn't been there?

    I would look and think...God Bless so I would not be judging this person.

    Hahahaha...what a question! I actually look, but try to look away quickly. Not so much to be polite, but because I really don't want to see it!

    ...you can look, but if their cell phone beeps as they are stepping back never yell loudly, "Watch out people, she's backing up!"

    Was that the kind of answer you were after rutley???

    Okay, I live in a resort area with beaches.  I'll be relaxing, taking in all the sounds and sights...I SEE THEM BEND OVER AND WISH I HADN'T TAKEN THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT TO LOOK AROUND!  If people only would remember to BEND THEIR KNEES!  No matter the SIZE, it's an unflattering view, and embarrassing for the unsuspecting viewers!
