The Social Security Administration officially reprimanded an employee whom colleagues accused of continuously passing gas and releasing an unpleasant odor that created a hostile work environment.

When senior management became aware of the reprimand it was immediately rescinded, agency spokeswoman Dorothy J. Clark said in an e-mail to The federal Eye. The agency did not respond to requests to provide a date for its rescinding action.

Musta raised a SERIOUS Stink about it! :-)!

I’m at work, trying hard not to LOLOL!
Wow, this legal ruling is a breath of fresh air.
they were told to blow it out their a**.
The Social Security Administration also did not say what action it took against the supervisor who willfully violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. I hope the guy with the gas problem sues.
maybe a transfer to Treasury Dept either ATF or IRS...he would fit right in.
Or more aptly stated as “Government backs away from farts!”
“like have a professor up your butt”
...whom colleagues accused of continuously "passing gas and releasing an unpleasant odor" that created a "hostile work environment."Gas he'll get away with, or she will.
