Icon86 Formal Reprimand Issued To Flatulent Federal Worker

A 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 odor” in his Baltimore office.

All I can say is that they selected the perfect photo for this article. Upon opening it up, I immediately though, 'I think I see the problem here.'

The man was also accused of launching a trio of attacks on September 11.
Is that supposed to be some sort of joke?

While there are several conditions that can cause uncontrollable gas and seriously nasty smells, lactose intolerance should not be one of those after diagnosis. Yes, it causes gas that can peel paint, but there is a fairly simple fix (avoid dairy). While some dairy products may slip through from time to time, you should be able to eliminate most sources of dairy from your diet much easier than, say, someone suffering from Crohn's can eliminate gluten. I am not sure I am on this guy's side.

I hope this doesn't encourage the belief that government workers are lazy, inasmuch as he was reprimanded for busting ass.

There's an even easier remedy for lactose intolerance that doesn't require restricting your diet. It's called Lactaid. Cheap, easy to carry and doesn't require a prescription.
