I’d just sniff and say “Nice! Is that Taco Bell?”. That may embarrass them enough. If they don’t stop after that, I don’t think they were ever going to stop.

Start farting loudly (but don’t shit your pants). When she looks at you weird, just say, “my bad. I thought we were doing this."

Quite likely GERD and the person can not help it.

likesmarthelpful

Well then that's a game changer. Honestly my 6 year old suffered with GERD and I didn't realize. I got really annoyed with her constantly burping and bubbling and felt so awful after finding out she had really bad GERD.

Can you ask them nicely to close their mouth? GERD is likely but they can be an adult about it

like

Plz see above response - no GERD - just constant diet soda drinking and belching 😂

UPDATE: I asked her very politely to attempt to close her mouth when she burps. Her: Ummm.... I never burp? Where is this coming from? Me: you just burped... like 5 seconds ago. Her: no I didn’t Me: if you wanna deny that you’re burping, fine. Just close your mouth when you “don’t burp”, please

Update: more burps today. Every time she did it I popped my head up over our divider and just looked at her. At the end of the day she said “I don’t get why you’re upset. It’s natural.” Aaannnnd guess who won’t be getting a full time position after her internship 😂

A guy at my gym used to do that all the time. It was so loud everyone would stop what they were doing and turn around. He would just smirk and shrug his shoulders. The staff told him it was rude. Didn't stop him one bit.

Gross. What a loser.

Yes tell her to stop. It’s rude.

omg pls tell her to stop. that’s so rude

Do you work in an ABW office? If so, just move. Or wear headphones. Jeez. Yeah, it’s gross, but are you sharing the same desk?
