This natural everyday occurrence has peaked my interest recently while watching an episode of "The Office".
Do you think it's rude for someone to yawn out loud? When I say out loud, I don't mean excessively loud like it's on purpose to draw some sort of attention or reaction.
Personally, I don't mind. I believe it's natural like farting.

Fun Fact: An Israel Defense Forces has sentenced a soldier to 21 days in jail for yawning.

Of course it's rude to yawn loudly while someone is giving a presentation; they're doing it intentionally to be funny/clever/rude. If you are really tired during a meeting and you have to yawn, do it quietly.

Reminds me of my friend who always yawns loudly during L.A. class. Annoys the hell out of the teacher, it's hilarious.

But even if it is rude, why care. If your going to yawn then yawn, why care, who thinks its rude ?

He used The Office as an example, which means you could lose your job, first off.

Sometimes if it's an unexpected yawn it is loud but generally if I know a yawn is coming I turn away from the speaker in a non-noticable way and cover my mouth to yawn.

Yawning is when you're tired or your brain isn't stimulated enough? It's not my fault if I yawn. The only time I yawn by purpose is if I'm playing with mates and want to pretend cry.

Oh yeah, I think if you do accidently yawn out loud then apologise and try not to do it again, it is really annoying XD

Eh, Well anyone who works in a cubicle in the first place deserves that. That would have to be the most annoying job on the planet. Office based jobs simply suck.

But still, why should anyone care what people think of them, so what if i yawned loudly during a presentation, so what, I don't care what people think. Why do lots of other people care how they are viewed ?

So what if people think I'm rude, just think that and move on with your day. I don't see how someone thinking I'm rude is suposed to make fell bad about it. So what, it's their opinion, how does their opinion effect me any ?

Yeah for sure.

But whether or not you care what people think, it seems dumb to go out of your way to be rude and obnoxious when you could just as easily be quiet and respectful.

Respect is too overrated, why am I suposed to be nice to someone I don't know, If I dont' know you, and you annoy me. your going to hear about it. Why am I suposed to act polite round other people ? So I don't offend them ? If I offend someone with something I say, thats 100% their problem, not mine.

But I don't go out of my way to be "Rude" at all, I just don't care if I offend someone at all, If I offend someone with what I say, then tough, deal with it. But I'm not rude, I don't go out of my way to offend people, I simply don't hold back my tongue at all, regardless of were I am, and regardless of who happens to be around me.

So If i've got to yawn during some presentation, then Im going to yawn. If it happens to be loud, then I guess it happens to be loud.

I'm not saying not to yawn, and if you yawn loudly naturally, fine. But I really think it's annoying to PURPOSELY yawn loudly as an expression of boredom during someone's speech or presentation. That shows that you DO care what people think. You want them to agree with you that the speaker is boring, or you want them to think you're funny or a rebel.

Why would i purposely yawn, if I was bored at a presentation, I would just get up and leave. And besides, we all know that everyone is thinking the same thing anyway, that it's boring. no need for me to go out of my way to do anything. And for that matter, going out of my way to do anything, is not my style. I wait for something toi happen that I can use to my advantage, and if nothing does happen, then i get someone else to do something about it, but if i did get bored at a presentation, I would just leave.
