- How can I deal with a difficult coworker? 10 answers
We work in a small office with only male developers, so it's not such a major issue if someone lets one rip every now and then. Big deal. However, there is one work colleague who has taken this to a whole new level.
Please, I am being serious about this. He can literally fart the whole day and I am beginning to wonder if he has the ability to fart at will. Oddly enough, it does not stink that much and sometimes I wonder if he is just using a phone app, in some weird joke that only he gets.
It has not been bothering me that much until recently. Seriously this did happen and I am kinda pissed off about it. So everybody had left the office and he was preparing to leave. I was in the middle of something with my headphones on but noticed in my peripheral vision, him making a fart gesture (he moved his body into a fart type position ) and then waved the air that he just let rip into my direction. I was so shocked, I literally just sat there thinking .. "wtf just happened?"
Then just last week after a few hours of farting he gets up and walks out the door (my desk is near the door) and lets one go as he is leaving the office right by my desk.
This is seriously not a joke. This is happening and I don't know how to deal with it. I am not one for confrontation and he is the lead developer on our team. We don't have an HR department. I have actually talked to him about, I told him he might have a problem and should go see a doctor. I said he might be lactose intolerant. Now, every now and then when we lets one go, he saids "oh it must be the 'lactice'"
I think he is a fan of Terrence & Philip from South Park. This is getting to the point where I actually want to leave this job completely, Although I am not qualified and was kinda lucky to get this job in the first place.
