Gas passer gets reprieve
The Social Security Administration retracted an official reprimand of an en employee, who for months, had passed gas in an office. The reprimand letter is four pages long and charged the federal worker with "conduct unbecoming a federal employee" and "creating a hostile work environment" because of repeated gas passing. The name of the employee was blacked out. The agency says the reprimand was rescinded a week after senior management became aware of it. The letter was dated Dec.10 and was posted on The Smoking Gun website.
