A 23-year-old Whitechapel woman managed just 2 hours sleep after she broke wind in a restaurant where she was on a first date with a man she had met on Tinder.
Tracy Dell, a hairdresser from Vallance Road, told The Whelk: “It happened during dessert. My spoon slipped from my hand, and as it clattered onto my plate, I farted with surprise.
“I looked up and saw that my date was looking down at his food. He was pretty expressionless so it was hard to tell if he’d heard it.
“It wasn’t an absolute rip-snorter or anything so I’m praying that he didn’t notice.
“Having said that, he was pretty quiet for the rest of the evening and he did make me get the bus home instead of dropping me off in his car.
“I hardly slept a wink last night and I’ve a horrible feeling it’s just the beginning.”
Ms Dell’s experience comes just 2 weeks after a 19-year-old woman from neighbouring Shadwell quit her new job minutes after letting fly with a real screamer while nervously shaking hands with the finance director.
