Warehouse worker sacked for for excessive farting



By Brian Roberts 13/02/2010

A warehouse worker's job has gone with the wind - after he was sacked for excessive farting.

Daniel Cambridge, 27, was dismissed from Waterstones' warehouse after 35 complaints to management about him breaking wind.

Local man Daniel insists his flatulence problem is a common side-effect of the antidepressant Citaloprama, which he has been taking for the past three weeks.

He has even highlighted that fact in the manufacturer's leaflet that comes with the prescription drug.

Daniel said yesterday: "I'm really annoyed. I can't believe I've been dismissed for passing wind. I know I'm not going to get my job back and I really liked it.

"I could understand them getting rid of me for fighting or something, but for passing wind is ridiculous.

"To me it's like having a disability and you wouldn't get rid of somebody with one arm or leg."

Daniel had worked at the warehouse in the Centrum 100 Business Park, Burton-upon-Trent, Staffs, since September. He got the job through employment agency Unipart. He added: "I had a call on Wednesday from Unipart telling me not to go to work because of my passing wind in the warehouse. Apparently there had been 35 complaints over two days from people who work there.

"The lady at the agency had it in an email that I was being dismissed because of my passing wind. That I was walking past people and breaking wind.

"It's not on, being sacked for that."

Unipart refused to comment last night.
