OT - My counselor farted during our session

I know this is silly and I'm being serious here. But I met with my counselor this morning who is really great. But - as he crossed his legs this morning...a move he does often...he cut the cheese. It was a slow faint one. Very faint. So much that he probably assumed I didn't know or hear and I tried to pretend I didn't. But it kind of changed my mood and I hid it.

It's kind of affected my mood for the day. I can't get it off my mind! lol. And I don't know why. I don't know why it even matters. It just made me so uncomfortable when he did it and I tried to act like I couldn't hear anything and then I had to sit there almost the whole hour knowing about it.

I just needed to share this. lol. Maybe I need to meditate or something to get it off my mind....

There's nothing so funny (yet disgusting) as a good fart joke.

Maybe he considers it a communal thing. Breaking wind together--sorta like breaking bread together. But on a more serious note, sh*t happens!

That is so funny! Maybe it really was a squeeky chair. My husband (which is different than the counselor, I know) comes out and asks me. Usually its no....and remember the small sneeky farts are usually the worse ones...so perhaps he really didn't. so funny..thanks. Perhaps it bothers you because you were expecting a "scuse me" like mom taught you.

farting is a very human thing to do, I somehow don't really expect doctors or Judges or prime ministers to be real human beings with faults and bodily functions. Could it be something like that playing on your mind?

OK, this reminds me of a funny story. Well, it's funny now....

Twenty-five years ago, or so, I was a secretary at a large company. I had just come back from lunch and punched the elevator button to go back to my office. The elevator door opened and a man named Tim, who worked in the mail room, exited the elevator with a smirk on his face. I entered the elevator and the door closed behind me.

It was then that I realized that he had just let out the nastiest fart ever. The elevator went up a floor or two and then, to my horror, it stopped and the door opened and a group of about 5 people entered the elevator, talking and laughing.

The door shut and suddenly everyone went quiet, raised their noses upward and took a whiff, and they turned and looked at me in disgust. I said, "I SWEAR, I DIDN'T DO IT!" And someone in the back of the elevator said "RIIIIIGHT."

I'm sure as long as I worked for that company, I was forever dubbed "the farter." I had half a notion to type Tim's last name, so he can finally take the blame for his stinky transgression, but he knows who he is.

Maybe your counselor was totally embarrassed and couldn't get it off his mind all day either!

That is what I would probably be feeling. Plus - I have been around people that farted to offend me on purpose and thought it was sooo funny - so it triggers that offended/embarrased/used/can't find the right word response in me even when it isn't like that at all.

I also have four boys now and nothing is funnier then a good squeaker I guess so I am becoming immune to it. I think the farting counselor might call that flooding

Try picturing that counselor farting with four young boys in the room. It would be complete breakdown with all the laughing, giggling, squeakers squeaked off to 'show him how its done'. All people fart but farting on demand must be a special boy power.

Golden, if it's been on your mind all day, could it be because you've somehow put him on a pedestal? Lol? Like, we could never imagine the Queen cutting the mustard, or our favourite actors/actresses, or even our counsellors? Just read what JenT wrote. She said it better than me...

Not to spoil anyone's fun but as we age it is harder to hold ones farts. I don't know if it varies from person to person but just know it's a part of aging. Best wishes to each of us!

I would suck at counseling.
I would probablyhave looked right at him and said
something like
"so ... are we pretending that nothing just happened? Is that the route we're taking?"

"do you need a moment to yourself?"

"does that cost extra or is it included in the cost of the session?"
even just -

"better now?"

"did you say something?"

"If I smell that - I'm not payin for this session."

ten years in a bar ... no way would they get away with it.
and then charge me money to sit there.
