Bullying can be experienced by an individual at any place. From school, tuition classes, workplace or normally chilling out with friends bullying exist and can defame people sentiments and feelings too. Bullies exist in all forms and people have just accepted it positively. The topics of Bullying sometimes can be very funny. Well, have you ever been bullied for farting??
David Hingst, a former employee at Construction Engineering Australia had accused his supervisor, Greg Short of repeatedly abusing him by farting on him, As per Business Insider.
Greg Short said “I KNEW THAT [HINGST] TOOK QUITE OFFENCE TO IT AND I – TO BE HONEST AT THE TIME I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, BUT THEN OBVIOUSLY REALISING IT WAS [HINGST] BEING [OF] GERMAN DESCENT, WHEREAS US AUSTRALIANS ARE SORT OF BROUGHT UP YOU SORT OF ACCEPT IT OR THINK OH IT’S JUST – THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS.”
Justice Rita Zammit, however, dismissed the case. She rejected Hingst’s claims and said that it was a joke and not a form of bullying. In her judgment, she wrote,“I DO NOT ACCEPT THE PLAINTIFF’S EVIDENCE ABOUT THE FREQUENCY OF MR SHORT’S FLATULENCE IN THE OFFICE OR THAT IT WAS TARGETED AT THE PLAINTIFF”.
If you think this is not a reality then let me tell you it is. The whole ordeal lasted for a total of 18 days.
