Hopefully some of you may be able to assist me with a point of etiquette. When in the traps at work, is it acceptable to sound a good healthy note on the bum trumpet as one goes about one's business? I ask because it is only natural and can be hard (not to say undesireable) to suppress. Is it a case of "what goes on in the gents, stays in the gents"? (not things of that sort, Mr Michael) Obviously you have the partitions to prevent visual offence, but can one really be held responsible for their construction being inadequate to the task of preventing olfactory and aural offence?
