    --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.

    So you also support the right for someone to call a hooker into work and **** her right on their desk? It's a natural body function.

    Re: Formal Reprimand Issued To Flatulent Federal Worker

    Here's my takeaway from this "lighthearted" news story: He was reprimanded before and said he planned to buy Gas-X. He apparently didn't. Why didn't he?

    And this write-up took five pages, which in itself indicates one of the problems we don't usually speak about. Five pages to ensure that everybody's butt is covered, that the EEOC won't be jumping up anybody's?

    stupid, STUPID management

    there were so many better ways to deal with this

    private office

    telework

    medical accommodation

    but management - likely without any medical training - attempts to trump the conclusion of a trained medical practitioner and insist that this is within his personal control

    now, just tee it up and give him a medical disability because the government has just documented that his medical circumstance is such that he is unable to perform his job

    hell of an expensive solution

    hope the manager(s) who authorized this disciplinary action have their own performance ratings adjusted accordingly

    That depends bubba, is this guy being an ass and intentionallly breaking wind around his fellow employees to annoy them...he produced a doctors not but his boss's said the medical condition had nothing to do with his flatulence. They have documented times and dates he omitted his foulness...I believe theres more to this than just some poor slob with medically uncontrollable nastiness.
    I once had a similar situation with a female officer coming into my office and telling me she had to have a transfer to another partner..
    She told me that not only did her partner have bad body odor he farted and laughed and locked the windows....he denied it of course, I couldnt prove it so I separated them and gave him a male partner I knew could kick the **** out of him...that ended the problem.

    That would liven up the office, yes.

    I'll bet it did.

    Meanwhile, this flatulent guy agreed to solve his problem by buying some Gas-X, which suggests to me that he didn't have some horrid medical problem and that actually buying and taking the Gas-X might have averted all of this.
