Why Does It Smell?

So, I walked upstairs to the 5th floor restroom to wash my hands. Without fail, as I open the first of two doors, I get a nasty whiff of noxious odors coming from the men’s bathroom. I ask myself, “The bathroom has an automatic air freshener. So, why does this bathroom always smell?” Please tell me your thoughts because I’m dying to know. Oh, and while we’re on the subject, how does a women’s bathroom compare? I know that somebody has to drop the bomb every now and then.

    This is really funny. Just the other day I found myself in a stall, sitting there with my eyes watering and my shirt over my nose because of the smell, and the thought came to me “I wonder if guys do this sort of thing or do they just tough it out?” To answer your question, yes girls bathrooms smell, although I am not a frequenter of the men’s bathroom so I cannot say which is smellier. But, I presume the men’s restroom is smellier more often, b/c they are known for being more disgusting, and boys tend to be smellier in general (i know this is not always the case, but nonetheless). This may be TMI, but girls bathrooms smell, not always, but occasionally with your normal #2 smell, AND/OR the feminine smell (the one I experienced earlier this week, which I find to be worse…much much worse…don’t ask. )There I said it.

    I can’t say that my eyes have ever watered, but there have been times where I’ve felt like plugging my nose.

    Regarding your claim that a men’s restroom is smellier more often b/c boys are more disgusting, I disagree. Men are known to be more crude, yes, but I wouldn’t say that’s why they’re supposedly smellier. Men happen to be more open about farting than women and less potent. Men fart, but it doesn’t always smell (I know this is true of women also). However, the times that I’ve been around women that fart, it’s been deadly. Can you say, Hiroshima all over again?

    A brief search on Google on the matter led me to conclude that women fart just as often as men. Yahoo! Answers has a number of women admitting that they actually have smellier farts than their counterparts. Granted, this is probably not true of every person.

    I am so glad that I don’t have to smell the “feminine smell” as you called it. I have smelled it in the past and it makes me gag. The nasty fish smell, well, stinks.

    Hopefully, more people will join us in this exciting topic of flatulation.

    Well i must say this post is way more exciting than your most recent. Let me clarify things in case someone else may suspect something. When you are talking about the Hiroshima gas you’ve so unfortunately experienced by women, you are not referring to me. anyway, i think you are mistaken when you say women have smellier gas than men, I have brothers and that’s all I need to say.

    so…when have you experienced the feminine smell?? nm, i don’t wanna know.

    Haha, yes, I figured that you wouldn’t enjoy the latest post on laptop woes.

    Yes, I am not referring to your flatulations because you’ve managed to hide them from me, which is fine by me.

    I don’t think I’m mistaken about women’s smelly farts…and the feminine smell…well, I do have sisters, just like you have brothers.

    So, today while I was in the bathroom, it smelled so good! The air freshener worked (or maybe nobody had dropped the bomb in a while). Anyway, it was the most pleasant experience I’ve had in that bathroom in a long time.
