    Which is more important, the right of workers to fart in the workplace, or the rights of other workers to stench-free air in their workplace?

    Put another way, is your right to fart in the workplace more important than your responsibility not to impose that stench upon your colleagues?

    Why are you taking the piss? I put up the poll because I really want to know what Americans think. I mean, in Australia it's not even an issue - people understand that passive smoking causes cancer, and that it can trigger asthma attacks, so smokers go outside to smoke. It's a national law, and people have adjusted to it with minimal upset.

    Well, I feel like one has a responsibility to himself as well.

    The health effects of ripping are well documented and can not be overlooked.

    Yes, because farts and smoking are consistent analogies.

    One is a NECESSARY body function to accommodate for air in the intestinal tract, and is inconsistent and released in extremely small quantities of gas. The other is a 99% voluntary addiction which is completely controllable and is produced in extremely large quantities per cigarette.

    Your basis of comparison is absolutely warped and as inaccurate as it could possibly get. Everyone farts because it's a bodily function. Many people will NEVER smoke, because it's an VOLUNTARY ADDICTION. If you can't clearly see the difference, perhaps you shouldn't post on the subject?

    What exactly is the difference between having to smell a fart and getting cancer? They both suck.

    I work with three men that think it's cute and funny to fart in the office. Luckily, I grew up with four brothers who thought it was cute and funny to pin me down on the floor, sit on my face and let one rip. So, I deal.

    The only time I compare farts to smoking is if someone asks if I mind if they smoke. My reply is "mind if I fart?"

    And if you're going to fart in the workplace, do it right. Don't limit it to the confines of your office or workspace. When you feel a really bad one coming on, take the opportunity to meander through your office saying "hi" to your co-workers as you crop dust the office.

    It really takes a lot to impregnate the carpeting and walls with fart odor the way you can with smoking, but with enough effort it can be done.

    Not the one I posted about, but another one does.

    And when you saw me upstairs yesterday, I was crop-dusting.

    I should be allowed to cleanse my colon any place I please. If you see me in the office and I hand you a gas mask, affix it immediately. At least I'll do THAT for you...

    Can we get a poll on nose-picking in the workplace -- rights vs. responsibilities, too?

    I have no idea how I got "pole smoking in the workplace" out of that, but that's what I read at first glance.

    Probably just wishful thinking; we all know "pole smoking" is very acceptable in the workplace!
