SSA Employee Reprimanded for Excessive Flatulence
December 27, 2012
Baltimore, Md. – A Social Security Administration (SSA) employee was formally reprimanded for passing gas too frequently in his Baltimore office, a news article from the website Smoking Gun said.
The 38-year-old Baltimore man was given a five-page reprimand letter, which included a log of representative dates and times when he was recorded “releasing the awful and unpleasant odor” in his office.
The letter also said that his “uncontrollable flatulence” had created a “hostile” working environment among his coworkers who have already aired their complaints with their supervisors.
Said employee works as a claims authorizer at the SSA Center in Baltimore, in which he handles and reviews disability cases of applicants from all over the country.
Moreover, the officers from the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), the union that represents the SSA employee, received a redacted copy of the letter for their perusal.
A lawyer from his union, AFGE Local 1923, is currently the representative of the employee in question.
