A plane passenger's desperate plea for a fellow traveller to stop farting has gone viral .
Garwee20 Reddit user posted an image of a note written on a napkin received by their flight attendant mother which read: "I don’t know if you can make an announcement.
"But if you can, you should say that whoever is farting in the areas of rows 10 to 12 should definitely see a doctor because they might have ass cancer." The amusing note has sparked a colourful debate about people's worst experiences of flatulence - and their are plenty.
Others asked if the flight attendant actually confronted the smelly passenger about their noxious emissions - she did not. But while being trapped mid-air in a confined space is never an ideal way to travel, it could have been worse.
Last year, a passenger on a British Airways flight to Dubai managed to produce a poo so smelly the plane was forced back to England on health and safety grounds .
