Dude officially asskicked for excessive Farting at Work

Ein Beamter aus Baltimore hat sich eine offizielle Abmahnung von seinem Arbeitgeber eingehandelt, weil er im Job zu viel gefurzt hat. Zusammen mit der Abmahnung haben sie ihm gleich noch eine detailierte, tabellarische Aufstellung der Extrem-Flatulenzen zukommen lassen. Lustig genug, aber noch witziger finde ich die Vorstellung, dass das erstmal jemandem aufgefallen sein muss und der war dann nach einer Weile so dermaßen genervt, dass er oder sie tatsächlich peinlich genau Buch geführt hat über die Ausdünstungen des Kollegen. Flatulenz-Bürokratie. Toll!

A US 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 odour” in his Baltimore office. In a letter sent on Decenber 1oth 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. The worker, a 38-year-old Maryland resident, reportedly submitted evidence that he suffered from “some medical conditions” that, at times, caused him to be unable to work full days. But a SSA manager noted in the reprimand letter that, “nothing that you have submitted has indicated that you would have uncontrollable flatulence. It is my belief that you can control this condition.”
