DECEMBER 21--A federal employee was formally reprimanded this month for excessive workplace flatulence, a sanction that was delivered to him in a five-page letter that actually included a log of representative dates and times when he was recorded releasing the awful and unpleasant odor in his Baltimore office.
Accusing him of conduct unbecoming a federal officer, the Social Security Administration employee was informed that his uncontrollable flatulence had created an intolerable and hostile environment for coworkers, several of whom have lodged complaints with supervisors.
Uncle Sam and his minions. A "discourtesy" from a federal officer, rudeness toward coworkers. Go figure. This farting festival of his results in a five page letter needing a reprimand.
Go team Feds! Just what we pay them for.
Wonder what he was eating, that we no doubt footed the bill for by the way, that caused all of this gas build up in the first place?? Too much Filet Mignon at lunch? Caviar overload? Smoked imported oysters the culprit?
The wonders of being among the elite. But of course they have on site medical personnel to see to his every need. Even those excessive farts....
