"Special Agent Smith" sent this poor guy just trying to do his job and research RC planes, into a full-fledged panic attack. Goes to show you've always got to be mindful about what kinds of questions your asking in forums online. Never know how it might look to government officials who don't have the context or know you.

Guy Assumes Office Is Empty, Unleashes Farts, Ends Up Meeting New Female Co-Worker At Peak Stench

This lactose and fructose intolerant employee made the grave error of assuming that his office was all cleared out. From that assumption, he thought it'd be chill to rip a few farts, and ended up vastly underestimating the stench of said farts. It gets even worse when his boss ends up coming through when the farts have hit peak stench, and he's being introduced to his new female co-worker in the middle of all this. Yikes all around!
