Awe man...Scott hit the nail on the head. We have had our project shifted to three different offices in the past four years (now moving to the fourth office in a couple of month' time). In the first office, I was seated below a leaking AC, in the second office my seat faced the women's loo which meant uncomfortable eye-to-eye contact every now and then and in the third office I was seated just outside the men's and women's loo with my back against them.

Good one, I'll use it when the right occasion comes up. "See you later, flatulator!" Haha!!!

Making the employee's work-space uncomfortable or distressful is a standard technique used by bosses to harass persons they don't like. I have seen the stratagem in operation, and have been the victim at times. AH Chapman, psychiatrist and author, has elaborated on these stratagems in his well-known book, "Put-Offs And Come-Ons": as I remember it, in the Chapter "Business Strategems".
"Flatulator" is an excellent, fully descriptive word.

Admit it, Adams, you're either subscribed to a certain internal mailing list at a Really Big Network Equipment Maker in Silicon Valley, or someone is funneling you real-time information from it :-)

It shouldn't matter to Alice where Tina's floor plan puts her because if any or all of those people get on Alice's nerves too much, she can just kill them--and Tina, too, while she's at it--with her Fist of Death.
