Air Passenger Passes Secret Note to Flight Attendant When Neighbor Begins Doing the Unthinkable

This might be one of the strangest stories we’ve ever covered, but the reason why it is strange demonstrates the changing world in which we live. It involves something we all do but many of us choose to do in private. It is something that probably should continue to be done in private because, well, it stinks.
Yes, we’re talking about flatulence, and while some people may think it’s funny, to those who must endure the olfactory assault, it is nothing but offensive.
It doesn’t help that countless movies include scenes where characters happily pass gas. Reality stars often glorify the ac,t and cartoons like “Family Guy,” “The Simpsons” and “South Park” revel in the juvenile act of producing poisonous poots. 
What was once a common courtesy has somehow abandoned our culture and while many might breaking wind think it’s funny or cute, it can actually create uncomfortable situations for many who become trapped by toxic toots.
Case in point: A flight attendant recently received a note from a passenger who was no doubt suffering from someone who passed gas a few rows ahead of him. The note was essentially the passenger pleading for the attendant to make an announcement in hopes that the offending passenger would stop.
The note read, “I don’t know if you can make an announcement, but if you can you should say that whoever is farting in the areas of rows 10 to 12 should definitely see a doctor because they might have a** cancer.” (The flight attendant made no announcement, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.gas note
According to the U.K.’s Metro, the situation might not have been entirely the passing passenger’s fault. University of Copenhagen clinical professor Jacob Rosenburg told the paper a person who breaks wind regularly might do it more on an airplane because of changes in cabin air pressure.
Still, I cannot imagine being stuck on a flight where someone continually passed gas and no doubt ruined every other passenger’s trip.
Please remember, in times when you feel compelled to let one rip, there is almost always a bathroom nearby and it’s there for a reason.
