There is nothing worse than working in a place where you feel unhappy and uncomfortable. Having a tough day at work is a given fact, so most people have already accepted that. But dealing with a bully colleague is definitely a different story.
David Hingst claims that his boss Greg Short was bullying him by repeatedly farting when nearby. He launched a suit against Construction Engineering last year, but a Supreme Court judge found there was no bullying. But David refused to give up without a fight and made an appeal to his case.
The 56-year-old engineer took his case to the Court of Appeal on Monday, saying that “flatulence was a form of bullying,” which he believed what Greg Short was doing to him.
While that sounded pretty funny and it seemed that David didn’t know how to take a joke, it is quite understandable that he would get annoyed by Greg’s farting because it happened numerous times. In fact, David said that his boss would fart on him around five or six times a day.
“I would be sitting with my face to the wall, and he would come into the room, which was small and had no window. He would fart behind me and walk away.”
At the original trial, Greg reportedly defended himself by saying that he didn’t recall doing it to David. But if he did, he may have done it just once or twice.
He told the panel of judges:
“He thrusted his bum at me while he’s at work.”
Although David claims the farts caused him “severe stress,” Justice Phillip Priest said they were not a primary issue in the original complaint, as it instead focused on the abusive phone calls.
David believed that Greg was trying to get rid of him and did all these to make him quit. He said that these incidents caused him psychiatric injuries.
He represented himself and claimed that he didn’t get a fair trial when in front of Supreme Court Justice Rita Zammit initially. But Priest disagreed, saying the trial judge showed “remarkable latitude” during the 18-day proceeding.
The judges with the Court of Appeal are expected to deliver their ruling on Friday.
