Workers at the Procurator Fiscal’s office in Glasgow were recently subjected to a malodorous prank.
Staff reported revolting smells within the office and no one could find the source of the problem, including drainage and pest control experts fetched in at a cost of £9000. The culprit turned out to be a disgruntled employee with a can of fart gas and an odd sense of humour.
I know it’s childish but I can’t help but laugh at this story, I have images of floorboards being ripped up and drains being peered into with those remote camera thingies and I can just see the guy sat at his desk giggling away to himself with his finger poised over the canister spray button; go ahead, make my day, thankfully the can of fart gas was not a Magnum .44.
As amusing japes go, this is a winner and definitely worthy of a prize of some sorts.
You could try this next time you are due a visit from HMRC’s enforcement officers, a quick spray around then pop outside exclaiming that you can’t enter the building as there is a build up of potentially explosive gas, it may just work, once or maybe twice.
Otherwise TaxGone knows that the smell can be taken away with a Company Voluntary Arrangement, the equivalent of spraying a nice cologne around the office!
