Do you get embarrassed when you're alone?

Let's say you fart or burp. If there's nobody around, do you still feel kind of ashamed? Do you still kind of panic and feel socially inept? Maybe not exactly as much as when someone hears, but sort kind of on the inside? I wouldn't know because I'm brilliant and I don't fart or burp. So I was wondering if you knew about it.

To me there is nothing to be embarrassed about if it happens when I'm alone.

Hey sheepie, when I do i'm at home, so everyone hear it. but when I'm out somewhere it has happen that they have sneaked out, and I'll look around to be sure no one heard it. One time we were at a department store, my daughter was around 10 or 12, her and my grandson were running around, and I called, well she decide to take off, and she started to fart, but it was so funny cause it sounded like she was clapping. we never let her forget that one.

I would not be embarrassed to fart or burp if no one was around. I do not do it at all if people are around me.

I don't feel embarrassed at all. What am I going to do, berate myself?

Nope. I say "excuse me" aloud, just to be courteous to my dogs and God and anyone else who's hanging around that I can't see, but those are all natural functions that don't deserve shame. They do dictate that you excuse yourself but they are nothing to be embarrassed about.

everyone farts, and burps. its a natural process of the body. doing it on purpose in public is rude though, cause its just annoying. but no in private i don't care. if i have to do it i'm going to,and i don't really think twice about it. well unless i think someone might show up soon. don't want to fart, and have someone walk in and go "ohhhh man what is that smell? ohhh its so awful"

I don't feel ashamed when I do with no one around. I would feel so embarrassed if there were people around me and I made one of those "silent but deadlies" Or a loud fart. Burps I have no problem anywhere. I'm ok with what I do, it's life!

Hi! Nope I don't get embarrassed if I did it alone and besides those are just natural for us to release them or else it might cause a problem inside us.And I think no matter how we supress it,it will just burst out naturally LOL...
