Flatulence Warning Withdrawn

I strive to bring you the important employment law decisions from around the country. I'm not gonna lie . . . this isn't one of them. But, it's too funny to ignore. The ABA Journal reports that the Social Security Administration withdrew its disciplinary letter accusing an employee of hostile flatulence in the workplace (yes, you read that correctly).

The 5-page letter itself is a masterpiece and I beg you to read the whole thing:
[Y]our coworkers were complaining about your flatulence in the workplace and went on to state that it was the reason none of them were willing to assist you with your work.
By far, the best part is a chart showing the dates and times of approximately 60 "events."

On an unrelated note: The thrill of victory - Lawffice Space is the featured blog on the ABA Journal right now! . . . . The agony of defeat - Lawffice Space finished 4th in the final Blawg 100 voting. Of course, it was an honor to make the Blawg 100 cut as one of only six employment law blogs and thanks to those of you who voted. And, congrats to Molly DiBianca and the Delaware Employment Law Blog gang for a stunning come from behind victory to take first place.
