Today, I was really hungry at work, and my stomach growled loudly. One of my co-workers heard it and thought it was a cat. Ashamed, I played dumb and we ended up spending twenty minutes looking for a cat that I knew didn't exist. FML

Nope, I blame her. If you're that ashamed of your bodily functions, you deserve to waste 20 minutes of your life. Everybody gets hungry, everybody's stomach makes noises sometimes. Why on earth would you get involved in such a stupid cover-up?

#28, seems a little harsh. I'm sure OP isn't the only person to be ashamed of something like this in a quiet setting, it could be embarrassing for anyone. I know it's happened to me in a quiet lecture hall before and it was pretty embarrassing

True, they got a 20 minute break from work, but op shouldn't be ashamed of being hungry. They should of just said "no, no cat, I'm just super hungry" pretty simple, and not a waste of time.

My coworker did something similar to this. But he was making cat noises, and a kid ask if there was a cat in the bathroom. So they went looking for it, and he told the kid it went through the wall. The kid ended up telling his mom what happen... Pretty sure he is going to end up with a restraining order.

^ the two of you need to take a seat. He should have his life ruined and be labelled as a sex offender because he played a prank on a child? Ookay then. That's not an overreaction at all.

@2 well played. Anyhow just be honest about it. Nothing to be embarrassed about. A matter of fact you and your coworker will have a fun story between you 2.

My stomach used to growl REALLY loud when I was in school and it was so embarrassing. But now I just don't really care anymore, I just say something like, " Woah that was my stomach!" And just make a joke out of it.
