Working Here Is a Gas, Gas, Gas


In December, a 38-year-old male worker at Baltimore's Social Security office was issued a formal reprimand after coworkers complained he prodigiously passed gas at his desk. He'd been counseled informally last summer; to satisfy "due process," a log was made later listing 60 specific emissions on 17 separate dates, with, for example, nine blasts on Sept. 19. Seven days after the letter of reprimand was issued, "senior management" at the agency learned of it and withdrew it, without comment, according to a Washington Post report.
