Comment or not acknowledge someone passing gas next to you?
A complete stranger or your own family......can you really disreguard?....I just can't! I laugh every time....I don't know why! Why do I get such a kick out of this?
REGARDLESS.....family, friend or stranger. I just walk away in total disgust. This is a totally rude and highly unacceptable thing for anyone to do.......
I don't comment. I just walk away. Most people are embarrassed when it happens, so your laughter probably offers some level of comfort.
Some cultures think this is totally fine. It is a "natural" bodily function. I just walk away because I don't want to be next to the person with that odor up my nose.
Some people are just rude and pop them out because they like the attention. I find myself squinting my eyes at them, still just walking away.
A lot of people do laugh, but I don't remember ever laughing at something like that. I'm overly concerned about how I'm going to avoid the smell. To me it is rated the same as second hand smoke.
I say nothing. I think saying something would be just as rude as they are.
LOL I just think this question is funny. :] I hate when people fart and don't warn me... -_-
I have to leave, it irritates me... and my nose.
It depends on who is doing the gassing. If it's a friend or a family member, I'll rib them to no end. I'd expect no less from them. People pass gas all the time and, especially as we get older - as I'm finding out - it's a little harder to control. If someone is genuinely embarrassed about it, I'll make a comment about how s**t happens. They usually get over it pretty quickly.
Hi. My name is Georgie. I'm 41 years old. And I think farts are funny. Thank you for listening.
My mother in-law is notorious for doing this. She doesn't care where she's at or who's around. She just says, excuse me, sorry. Sometimes I just laugh at her and other times it's irritating because my wife and I are currently living with her for another month..lol. Otherwise I laugh, especially when it happens in church or in the middle of a quiet group of people..I'm immature, I know.

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?

Do you think it is important to add follow-up comments when people answer your questions?When I answer a question or leave a comment on someone's hub, I appreciate some awknowledgement. I feel surprised (and a bit "cheated" when there is no response) Am I setting my expectations too...

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?

Does everyone ALWAYS respond to comments on their hubs?Suddenly there seem to be a number of hubbers who are not replying to comments left, even after a week. Is this common? Do you always respond? I know I do; if I've missed anyone's comment then it hasn't been intentional...
