  • Why is belching rude?

    I can understand flatulence being rude, as it produces an (often extremely vile) odor, plus the risk of sharting makes it a dangerous proposition in public anyhow. But unless you do it right in somebody's face, the humble burp doesn't smell like anything. It's just a normal biological noise with no side effects. Why not, I ask? Isn't objecting to burping just alimentary prudery?

    In some cultures it's not.
    The cake is NOT a lie. It's so delicious and moist.

      If you weren't aware belching does tend to produce odours as well. They aren't as lasting as those from the worst farts, but they can be quite offensive.

          people around me don't mind as long as an 'excuse me' follows the burp. or if it was a really loud, awesome one a round of laughter is also acceptable.

            If you don't belch out the Gettysburg Address, then yes it is considered quite rude.

                Though I have virtually no sense of smell myself, I have indeed heard that this is true.

                Regardless, it's a natural bodily function. I don't see why it or farting should be considered rude.

                        If you belch like my daughter, then I would have to go with rude. She can belch like a guy and rattle the windows. Husband sat her down with a three liter of Dr. Pepper and taught her how to burp with the best football players, she can hold her own. It's actually quite narley. She scared my grandaughter once.

                          I thought urinating on students was part of your job discreption.
