Holy fark!  FTA: For example, the man's September 19 output included nine instances of flatulence, beginning at 9:45 AM and concluding at 4:30 PM.

Someone had to document this guy's flatulence.

Beano is cheap.

Yes but how long, loud and noxious.

I'm guessing it wasn't like an 20 year old females tweet on a first date.  Lol

Any time you have to ask a question like that the answer really doesn't matter.

the Social Security Administration employee was informed thathis "uncontrollable flatulence"

"nothing that you have submitted has indicated that you would have uncontrollable flatulence. It is my belief that you can control this condition."


Well, which is it?


The man was also accused of launching a trio of attacks on September 11.

Never forget.

The SSA worker is pictured with his wife in the above photo, which apparently was taken at an amusement park (yes, he is standing at the left shoulder of someone dressed as Pepe Le Pew)

Yeah, I know

The only thing better than farting in an elevator is crop dusting an entire supermarket aisle when no one's there, then getting into the next aisle and listening to people when they encounter your handiwork.

I don't see constantly farting at your desk as any different than constantly belching, or picking your nose, or clipping your nails, or any other number of activities that should be done in a bathroom, not in an office cubicle.  It's rude, it's disgusting, and it shows you not only have a lack of respect for yourself, it shows you have no respect for your co-workers.  I worked with a guy like that, and it was enough to make you vomit.

I get that sometimes accidents happen, but when it's constant like that.....you're just being an asshole prick.

How can you be reprimanded for not controlling something that is described as uncontrollable?
 
2012-12-21 11:25:13 PM  
Retirement on disability coming in 3...2...1...

Not only that, in all seriousness it might be a chronic intestinal problem that is causing this. Do you Americans have non-discrimination laws?
 
2012-12-21 11:28:53 PM  
It can't have been that serious. I mean, this is serious:

Pretty much this.
 
2012-12-21 11:29:39 PM  
If the dude can't help it, all he needs is a note and his coworkers are SOL. I'm rooting for old gassy in this story as HR personnel are generally some of the most odious people existing in the modern world.
 
2012-12-21 11:29:53 PM  
This will be the final motivation for this guy to go to the doctor - get diagnosed with I.B.S then sue the government for discrimination for his disability and get a nice big paycheck. In the end it will probably be better for everyone if he does get paid and retire.
 
2012-12-21 11:30:08 PM  
Geeeez , some farters have no social skills.
I preferred to stink out the office shiatter with a bowel moving experience and then kill the fan and light and close the door.
What a pain to wait 2 1/2 hours for the victim to gagggggggg.

/So then the fan was modded to be not controllable by mere mortals, due to some unknown crappers gaseous odor.

Suckmaster Burstingfoam: Do you Americans have non-discrimination laws?


Not sure if "chronic flatulence" is a protected class for discrimination purposes.

Welcome to Obama's America.  Stuff like this only happens when a libtard is running the show.
 
2012-12-21 11:32:00 PM  
He should be self aware enough to excuse himself once an hour to deal with things properly in the toilet. And as mentioned above, beano, or some other diet change. Most of us would be embarrassed enough to get medical professionals involved once it seemed uncontrollable. Maybe even work something out with HR to work from home.
 
2012-12-21 11:32:00 PM  
Husband is on the right. You can tell he is balding.

Also, while my coworkers in the federal gov NEVER hold in a fart, if someone's is a problem I am sure there are medical solutions.

Carbon underwear if nothing else.

A quick Google search says The average person passes gas 14 to 23 times a day. It is a natural biological function that is impossible to prevent. I understand that sometimes it is more unpleasent than others but you can't expect everyone to live and work in the bathroom because you are too sensitive to deal with the reality of life. If you are so precious maybe you should be the one isolated.

You sound like rhe people who can't deal with children in public. In other words, you sound disfunctional.

Nullo is a dietary supplement that claims to eliminate strong personal odors of all kinds. I've worked with a few people who could have used this. (new window)

If he has sleep apnea or an ulcer - he's going to have a medical backup reason.  A CPAP blows air into you for the entire time you sleep, and some of that ends up in your stomach.  If you have an ulcer (which I'm guessing, because of the smell) - then bacteria gives off gas as a byproduct.  CPAP gas clears out after the first hour you wake up, and doesn't smell.  Ulcer gas is more problematic, but if you are already being treated for it, prescription strength Gas-X is part of the regimen.

This guy sounds like he just needs to fart and won't do anything about it.
 
2012-12-21 11:35:15 PM  
Oh, and ime on a gassy day if you stand up to go elsewhere the pressure fades and you just can't fart till you get back in your seat.

/knows a thing or two about farting.

I was always taught,never trust a fart.

I don't see how clipping nails is gross, unless you mean leaving the clippings somewhere other than the trash can. And even then, dude, they're solid, clean and dry... the contents of your keyboard's interstices are way worse.

/Apple transparent-case keyboard: Worst. Idea. EVER.

Lsherm: This guy sounds like he just needs to fart and won't do anything about it.


That's what I got from the story. He was warned multiple times and had opportunities to get verification of a medical issue.

I'm guessing it is passive-agressive chemical warfare.

Letdown: This will be the final motivation for this guy to go to the doctor - get diagnosed with I.B.S then sue the government for discrimination for his disability and get a nice big paycheck.


THIS.

If he gets/has a diagnosis, he can also file an ADA grievance for them not making a reasonable accommodation for his disability.

If he didn't leak the letter to the internet himself, that's also grounds for a lawsuit. I hope he sues, gets enough to retire, and then cranks off a giant one right as he's walking out the door for the last time.
