It’s pretty well known that the employees at the Environmental Protection Agency seem to be delinquents in one form or another, however according to the latest reports they may have been taking things just a bit too far.
Earlier in the year, the management at the EPA’s Region 8 office in Denver, Colorado had to send out an email telling their employees to refrain from their nasty bathroom habits, which included pooping on the floors in the hallways, according to the DailyCaller. In fact, the incidents became so bad that the office was forced to call a workplace violence expert to help handle it.
The news website Government Executive was able to obtain an email from the EPA’s Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor that was dated earlier in the year. The email mentioned “several incidents” in the agency’s building that included clogged toilets and “an individual placing feces in the hallway.”
The workplace violence expert, John Nicoletti, determined the feces in the hallway to be an office health and safety risk, shocker right? He also said that those responsible would “probably escalate” their feces attacks.
The EPA wouldn’t comment on the incident when they were asked by Government Executive.
The spokesman said they couldn’t comment on ongoing personnel matters, but that the “EPA’s actions in response to recent workplace issues have been deliberate and have focused on ensuring a safe work environment for our employees. Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects our commitment to securing a safe workplace.”
However Cantor wrote that “Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals,” while asking anybody with knowledge of the poop bandits to come forward with information.
Guess this gives a whole new meaning to the term “environmentally friendly.”
